About this book

The study of climate seems today to be dominated by global warming but these predictions of climatic models must be placed in their geological, paleo-climatic and astronomical context to create a complete picture of the Earth's future climate. "The Future of the World's Climate" presents that perspective with data and projections that have emerged from more technologically advanced and accurate climate modeling.

This book is comprised of 18 new and revised chapters that feature reviews of current climate science. The authors are drawn from all over the world and from the highest regarded peer-reviewed groups. Each chapter will undergo major revisions and new chapters and content will be added throughout. It is authored by the world's leading climate scientists, most of whom are also contributing authors to the IPCC Assessment Reports.

More than 200 tables, diagrams, illustrations, and photographs will be featured-approximately 60 per cent will be new to the second edition. Climate modeling technology is more advanced and precise than it was 15 years ago-a major implication that will be featured in the revised edition.
