#2 Prediction of atmospheric phenomena requires knowledge/understanding of the components and the interaction of components of the system. Example, blizzards.
#6 Historical interactions between the atmosphere and other systems affect current behavoir of the atmosphere

#1: Atmospheric processes interact with the other components of the Earth system via both energy and matter transfer such as: living things, water, ice, and land.
- NASA/GODDARD examples G1 - G3 are here...
#3: Interactions of components of the Earth's system cause changes and produce (emergent) phenomena unique to the system.
#5. There are biogeochemical cycles that vary across various time scales that affect the atmosphere.
#6. Historical interactions between the atmosphere and other systems affect current behavoir of the atmosphere
