About this book

The Climate Change Compendium is a review of some 400 major scientific contributions to our understanding of Earth Systems and Climate that have been released through peer-reviewed literature or from research institutions over the last three years, since the close of research for consideration by the IPCC Fourth Assessment Report.

The Compendium presents some exciting scientific findings, interpretations, ideas, and conclusions that have emerged among scientists. Focusing on work that brings new insights to aspects of Earth System Science at various scales, it discusses findings from the International Polar Year and from new technologies that enhance our abilities to see the Earth's Systems in new ways.

Evidence of unexpected rates of change in Arctic sea ice extent, ocean acidification, and species loss emphasizes the urgency needed to develop management strategies for addressing climate change.
