Series: SCOPE - Scientific Committee on Problems of the Environment Volume: 29
574 pages, illustrations
A group of international scientists analyze the problems of increasing atmospheric carbon dioxide concentrations in the Earth's atmosphere and the possible future climatic changes which may ensue. Serving as a basis for future discussion and development of remedies, this incisive and thought-provoking compendium considers such major issues as the quantity of CO2 likely to be released into the atmosphere as a result of fossil fuel combustion, the expected increases of other greenhouse gases that affect the Earth's radiation budget, how and when climatic changes can be detected and the projected changes in sea level resulting from global warming. These and other related issues are addressed by recognized scientists and critically reviewed by their peers.
