Global Environmental Change: An Atmospheric Perspective

by

Global Environmental Change: An Atmospheric Perspective Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book describes how the atmosphere works as a global entity to maintain a given global climate or to maintain an adequate ozone shield. It focuses on the two aspects of global change brought about by human activities: a global change in climate and a deterioration of the earth's protective shield of ozone. The authors show how to use information about how the atmosphere functions to predict the future courses of these two aspects of global change.

Synopsis:

This text focuses on the atmosphere and how it works as a global entity to maintain a given global climate or ozone shield and how it is influenced by human activity. A complete reference for students of environmental science and related fields, it introduces aspects of global change from a meteorological perspective. An accompanying guide to the Internet helps keep readers up to date on the latest information in the field.
