Description: One of the most important factors impacting terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems is the atmospheric environment. Climatic and weather events play a significant role in governing the natural processes that occur in these ecosystems. The current characteristics of the vast number of ecosystems that cover the northeast and north central United States are, in part, the result of climate, weather, disturbance, and atmospheric pollution patterns that exist in the northeast and north central United States.
