From the reviews: "Can the study of climate and history help in devising strategies for coping with global environmental change? What might be the type of information most useful in this context? These and similar questions were discussed by experts from the natural and social sciences ! during a four day workshop, and the resulting proceedings are presented in this title, with comprehensive papers of broad interest, thematic background papers, and reports of study groups." (Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society, October, 2003)
