About the Authors
  • The Arctic is now experiencing some of the most rapid and severe climate change on earth. Over the next 100 years, climate change is expected to accelerate, contributing to major physical, ecological, social, and economic changes, many of which have already begun. Changes in arctic climate will also affect the rest of the world through increased global warming and rising sea levels. Impacts of a Warming Arctic is a plain language synthesis of the key findings of the Arctic Climate Impact Assessment (ACIA), designed to be accessible to policymakers and the broader public. The ACIA is a comprehensively researched, fully referenced, and independently reviewed evaluation of arctic climate change. It has involved an international effort by hundreds of scientists. This report provides vital information to society as it contemplates its responses to one of the greatest challenges of our time. It is illustrated in full color throughout.

    • Cutting edge and scientifically detailed
    • Accessible to the general public and policymakers
    • Highly illustrated with beautiful images and simple graphics

    Reviews & endorsements

    "The ACIA Overview Report is an excellent educational tool that explains the implications of Arctic climate change to the general public and decision makers. It is a reference volume for those who need to find reliable facts about the Arctic and climate change quickly. ACIA is a pedagogical resource since many of its figures and graphs are available on-line and can be easily incorporated into presentations...I believe that readers will appreciate the objective and balanced style of Impacts of a warming Arctic and enjoy the visual impact of this handsome reference volume." - Ecoscience, Derek Mueller, Universite Laval
