About this book

First published between 1966 and 1988, the four volumes in this collection demonstrate the immense breadth and depth of work on climate change by the pioneering English climatologist Hubert Lamb. Detailing everything from the fundamentals of climate and climatology, as well as a history of climatic change from the ice-age to the second half of the twentieth century, through to a consideration of how future climatic trends should be approached, this is a very comprehensive and laudable collection.

As one of the first scientists to suggest that climate could change within human experience, and the founder of the ground-breaking Climatic Research Centre at the University of East Anglia, it is hard to overestimate the impact of Professor Lamb's work in establishing the study of climate change as a serious research subject and in developing our understanding of how and why climate change occurs.

'Professor Lamb has indeed served us well, in a complex field of study of the utmost significance to mankind' -- The Times Higher Education Supplement 'Destined to become one of the classics of climatology' -- Geographical Magazine 'Professor Lamb is to be congratulated on producing such an informative book, one which is almost certainly destined to become a classic synthesis of our present understanding of physical and dynamical climatology.' -- Times Literary Supplement 'The publishers are to be congratulated ... in publishing this extremely stimulating and often challenging volume.' - Geography
