Description - Understanding Global Climate Change: Modelling the Climatic System and Human Impacts by Arthur P Cracknell

Climate change, a familiar term today, is far more than just global warming due to atmospheric greenhouse gases including CO2. In order to understand the nature of climate change, it is necessary to consider the whole climatic system, its complexity, and the ways in which natural and anthropogenic activities act and influence that system and the environment. Over the past 20 years since the first edition of Understanding Global Climate Change was published, not only has the availability of climate-related data and computer modelling changed, but our perceptions of it and its impact have changed as well. Using a combination of ground data, satellite data, and human impacts, this second edition discusses the state of climate research today, on a global scale, and establishes a background for future discussions on climate change. This book is an essential reference text, relevant to any and all who study climate and climate change.

Features

  • Provides a thought-provoking and original approach to the science of climate.
  • Emphasises that there are many factors contributing to the causation of climate change.
  • Clarifies that while anthropogenic generation of carbon dioxide is important, it is only one of several human activities contributing to climate change.
  • Considers climate change responses needed to be undertaken by politicians and society at national and global levels.
  • Totally revised and updated with state-of-the-art satellite data and climate models currently in operation around the globe.
