About this book

Climate Change 1995 – The Science of Climate Change is the most comprehensive assessment available of current scientific understanding of human influences on past, present and future climate. Prepared under the auspices of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), each chapter is written by teams of lead authors and contributors recognized internationally as leading experts in their field. Climate Change 1995 is the first full sequel to the original 1990 IPCC scientific assessment, bringing us completely up to date on the full range of scientific aspects of climate change. This assessment forms the standard scientific reference for all those concerned with climate change and its consequences, including policy makers in governments and industry worldwide, and researchers and senior-level students in environmental science, meteorology, climatology, biology, ecology and atmospheric chemistry.

Media reviews

"[...] essential reading for anyone interested in global environmental change, either past, present or future. Climate Change 1995 is the fourth major report of the IPCC [...] These volumes have a deservedly high reputation for their clear analysis and presentation of climate data, and for the consensus statements of their significance for climate policy. For the Earth Scientist they provide one-stop overviews of the climate system and its natural and anthropogenic variation on a 1 to 1000 year timescale."
- Nigel Woodcock, Geological Magazine

"[...] a wealth of clear, well-organized information that is all in one place [...] there is much to applaud."
- A. Alan Moghissi, Environment International

"[...] for someone who is looking for a comprehensive account of the current state of climate science, and an exhaustive compilation of references to the furious scientific endeavour of the past few years, this volume will be invaluable. It will be a key reference, at least until the next report in the new millenium!' Weather 'The lack of emotive language and the scientific candour of the reports makes the information useful (especially the excellent summaries) for those keen to get behind the public rhetoric."
- TEG News

"[...] the standard scientific reference for many years to come."
- Bulletin of the International Society of Soil Science
