Climate Change 2001: The Scientific Basis Summary


Climate Change 2001: The Scientific Basis: Contribution of Working Group I to the Third Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change by J. T. Houghton (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change)

Climate Change 2001: The Scientific Basis is the most comprehensive and up-to-date scientific assessment of past, present and future climate change. The report: * Analyses an enormous body of observations of all parts of the climate system. * Catalogues increasing concentrations of atmospheric greenhouse gases. * Assesses our understanding of the processes and feedbacks which govern the climate system. * Projects scenarios of future climate change using a wide range of models of future emissions of greenhouse gases and aerosols. * Makes a detailed study of whether a human influence on climate can be identified. * Suggests gaps in information and understanding that remain in our knowledge of climate change and how these might be addressed. This latest IPCC assessment will again form the standard scientific reference for all concerned with climate change and its consequences, including students and researchers in all aspects of environmental and atmospheric science, and policymakers in governments and industry worldwide.

Climate Change 2001: The Scientific Basis Reviews


'The detail is truly amazing ... invaluable works of reference ... no reference or science library should be without a set ... unreservedly recommended to all readers.' Peter Rogers, The Journal of Meteorology
'This well-edited set of three volumes will surely be the standard reference for nearly all arguments related with global warming and climate change in the next years. It should not be missing in the libraries of atmospheric and climate research institutes and those administrative and political institutions which have to deal with global change and sustainable development.' Stefan Emeis, Meteorologische Zeitschrift
'... there is so much of value in this totally revised and rewritten work. It is likely to remain a vital reference work until further research renders the details outdated by the time of the next survey.' Peter A. Smithson, International Journal of Climatology
'The International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has conducted what is arguably the largest, most comprehensive and transparent study ever undertaken by mankind ... The result is a work of substance and authority, which only the foolish would deride ... All wind power practitioners should make themselves familiar with these seminal Reports, which provide authoritative justification for increasing wind power as a modern and essential technology.' Wind Engineering
'... an important book which deserves to be more widely read, and acted upon.' Andrew Haines, International Journal of Epidemiology
'Whether the reader is a proponent of greenhouse-gas induced climatic change or a sceptic, the weight of evidence presented, the authority that IPCC commands and the breadth of view can hardly fail to impress and earn respect. Each of the volumes is essentially a remarkable work of reference, containing a plethora of information and copious bibliographies, mostly of post 1995 papers. There can be few natural scientist who will not want to have at least one of these volumes to hand on their bookshelves, at least until further research renders the details outdated by the time of the next survey.' The Holocene
