The theory of the Earth's climate evolution is based on universal chemical-physical laws of matter-energy transformation is presented in the book. It shows how the process of Earth's core separation has led to formation and evolution of the hydrosphere and atmosphere.
Having analysed the processes of heat transfer in the atmosphere, the writers developed the adiabatic theory of the greenhouse effect, which was applied for analysis of climatic changes on the Earth. The influence of changes in climate on formation of mineral deposits and development of life on Earth was considered and presented based on modeling of typical climatic regimes. It shows that the anthropogenic effect on the Earth's global temperature is negligible in comparison with the effect of global forces of nature.
"A fascinating tour-de-force of earth history . . . the main strength of the book is that it provides a comprehensive integrated model of the Earth and its climate. Individuals may question different aspects of the model. That is a positive aspect, however, as it will promote discussion and further research, resulting in a better understanding of the Earth and its climate." -- Alfred H. Pekarek, Earth and Atmospheric Sciences, St. Cloud University
"One of the most hotly debated science-based policy issues from the last 20 years is global climate change. . . . Most contributions about global warming are published by Anglo-Saxon authors. We have therefore to thank Elsevier for publishing the refreshing Russina work, which presents a global view of the Earth evolution syste, from its basic planetary components to the impact of microbial activity on the climate." -- Brigitte Va Vliet-Lanoe, CNRS Domaines Oceaniques, in "Geologos"
