About this book

This monumental work is to be published as a five-volume set with an associated Web site. The encyclopedia will contain: 500 authored articles; 750 definitions; 500 acronyms; 125 biographies of widely recognised contributors to global environmental change; 2500 line illustrations and 500 photographs. Each article will be prefaced by a few paragraphs aimed at the non-specialist level followed by a more rigorous academic review.

The five-volume set will be arranged around the following themes:
Volume 1: The Earth System: Physical and Chemical Dimensions of Global Environmental Change (including climatology, meteorology, physical oceanography, chemistry and Earth Surface processes);
Volume 2: The Earth System: Biological and Ecological Dimensions of Global Environmental Change (terrestrial and aquatic: marine and freshwater);
Volume 3: Causes and Consequences of Global Environmental Change (including natural as well as human forces);
Volume 4: Social and Economic Dimensions of Global Environmental Change (covering the biosphere and society and technical/social/engineering solutions);
Volume 5: Responding to Global Environmental Change (covering policy and related socioeconomic/ethical questions).

Taking a thematic approach rather than simply alphabetical, the encyclopedia will include theory, empirical studies and applications, emphasising the interrelationship between various disciplines and systems. This structure reflects the current development of environmental research and will make the product useful both as a research reference and as an advanced level teaching tool.
