Book description

This Fifth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) will again form the standard scientific reference for all those concerned with climate change and its consequences, including students and researchers in environmental science, meteorology, climatology, biology, ecology and atmospheric chemistry. It provides invaluable material for decision makers and stakeholders at international, national and local level, in government, businesses, and NGOs. This volume provides:• An authoritative and unbiased overview of the physical science basis of climate change• A more extensive assessment of changes observed throughout the climate system than ever before• New dedicated chapters on sea-level change, biogeochemical cycles, clouds and aerosols, and regional climate phenomena• Extensive coverage of model projections, both near-term and long-term climate projections• A detailed assessment of climate change observations, modelling, and attribution for every continent• A new comprehensive atlas of global and regional climate projections for 35 regions of the world


Review of the Fourth Assessment Report – Climate Change 2007:'… a milestone for climate change science and policy.'

Review of the Third Assessment Report – Climate Change 2001:'The detail is truly amazing … invaluable works of reference … no reference or science library should be without a set [of the IPCC volumes] … unreservedly recommended to all readers.'

Review of the Third Assessment Report – Climate Change 2001:'The subject is explored in great depth and should prove valuable to policy makers, researchers, analysts, and students.'

Review of the Third Assessment Report – Climate Change 2001:'… structured in the well-established format of all former IPCC Assessment Reports … will surely be the standard reference for … arguments related with the science, the impacts, adaptation and vulnerability, and with mitigation and adaptation to 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.'

Review of the Third Assessment Report – Climate Change 2001:'The 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.'

Source: Wind Engineering

Review of the Third Assessment Report – Climate Change 2001:'… 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. There can be few natural scientists 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.'
