Archer's Global Warming: Understanding the Forecast2nd Edition, is the first real text to present thescience and policy surrounding climate change at the right level.Accompanying videos, simulations and instructional support makes iteasier to build a syllabus to improve and create new material onclimate change. Archer's polished writing style makes the textentertaining while the improved pedagogy helps better understandkey concepts, ideas and terms. This edition has been revised and reformulated with a newchapter template of short chapter introductions, study questions atthe end, and critical thinking puzzlers throughout. Also a newasset for the BCS was created that will give ideas for assignmentsand topics for essays and other projects. Furthermore, a number ofinteractive models have been built to help understand the scienceand systems behind the processes.
Global Warming: Understanding the Forecast is acomprehensive introduction to all aspects of global warming.Written in an accessible style, this important book examines theprocesses of climate change and climate stability, from the distantpast to the distant future. Examining the greenhouse effect, the carbon cycle, and what thefuture may hold for global climate, this text draws on a wide rangeof disciplines, and summarizes not only scientific evidence, butalso economic and policy issues, related to global warming. Acompanion web site at (http://understandingtheforecast.org)provides access to interactive computer models of the physics andchemistry behind the global warming forecast, which can be used tosupport suggested student projects included at the end of eachchapter. Solutions and artwork from the book are available toinstructors at www.blackwellpublishing.com/archer. Global Warming: Understanding the Forecast provides anessential introduction to this vital issue for both students andgeneral readers, with or without a science background.
An introduction to the topic of global warming and to the American Museum of Natural History/Environmental Defense Fund exhibition, Global Warming: Understanding the Forecast.
Chosen for the 2011 ASLI Choice - Honorable Mention (History Category) for a compendium of the key scientific papers that undergird the global warming forecast. Global warming is arguably the defining scientific issue of modern times, but it is not widely appreciated that the foundations of our understanding were laid almost two centuries ago with the postulation of a greenhouse effect by Fourier in 1827. The sensitivity of climate to changes in atmospheric CO2 was first estimated about one century ago, and the rise in atmospheric CO2 concentration was discovered half a century ago. The fundamentals of the science underlying the forecast for human-induced climate change were being published and debated long before the issue rose to public prominence in the last few decades. The Warming Papers is a compendium of the classic scientific papers that constitute the foundation of the global warming forecast. The paper trail ranges from Fourier and Arrhenius in the 19th Century to Manabe and Hansen in modern times. Archer and Pierrehumbert provide introductions and commentary which places the papers in their context and provide students with tools to develop and extend their understanding of the subject. The book captures the excitement and the uncertainty that always exist at the cutting edge of research, and is invaluable reading for students of climate science, scientists, historians of science, and others interested in climate change.
Der Klimawandel ist – nicht zuletzt nach der einzigartigen Serie verheerender Wetterextreme der letzten zehn Jahre – in aller Munde. Angesichts seiner einschneidenden und globalen Bedeutung für Natur und Zivilisation ist das kein Wunder. Doch was ist eigentlich unter Klimawandel zu verstehen, und welche Faktoren sind für das Klima verantwortlich? Zwei international anerkannte Klima-Experten geben einen kompakten und verständlichen Überblick über den derzeitigen Stand unseres Wissens und zeigen Lösungswege auf.
