Brand new report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.

Cambridge University Press is proud to announce the forthcoming publication of the Fifth Assessment Report (AR5) volumes of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. The reports of IPCC Working Groups II and III will follow in Summer 2014. This latest Fifth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) will again form the standard scientific reference for all those concerned with climate change and its consequences, including students and researchers in environmental science, meteorology, climatology, biology, ecology and atmospheric chemistry. It provides invaluable material for decision makers and stakeholders: international, national, local; and in all branches: government, businesses, and NGOs. This volume provides: 1 An authoritative and unbiased overview of the physical science basis of climate change; 1 A more extensive assessment of changes observed throughout the climate system than ever before; 1 New dedicated chapters on sea-level change, biogeochemical cycles, clouds and aerosols, and regional climate phenomena; 1 A more extensive coverage of model projections, both near-term and long-term climate projections; 1 A detailed assessment of climate change observations, modelling, and attribution for every continent; 1 A new comprehensive Atlas of Global and Regional Climate Projections for 35 regions of the world.

Textbook

University of Colorado Boulder

www.cambridge.org/9781107037250

and Eileen A. Hall-McKim University of Colorado Boulder

This concise, non-mathematical introduction covers the key topics of climate science for intermediate undergraduate students on onesemester courses. The book progresses from climate processes to world climate types, past climate change and projected future climates, ending with climate applications. Full-color illustrations, boxed supplementary topics and endof-chapter questions support student learning. Advance praise: ‘This delightful and readable textbook covers all the topics – and then some – likely to comprise an introductory or intermediate-level college course … Discussions of the forcing, form, and function of the climate system – on scales ranging from local to global – will be essential reading for university undergraduate and graduate students alike, and a helpful review for seasoned researchers in the climate and atmospheric sciences. The easyon-the-eye text style is complemented by the many incisive color figures, maps and graphs, most of which are based on the latest analyses from satellites and global reanalysis data. Beginning and end-of-chapter overviews and summaries highlight the most important concepts and features of climatology study, while the glossary and bibliography are both comprehensive and fully up-to-date … THE essential text on climatology … destined to become a classic.’ Andrew M. Carleton, Pennsylvania State University

Climate Change Geoengineering Philosophical Perspectives, Legal Issues, and Governance Frameworks Edited by Wil C. G. Burns The Johns Hopkins University

and Andrew L. Strauss Widener University School of Law, Delaware

In this book, eleven prominent authorities on climate change consider the legal, policy and philosophical issues presented by geoengineering. The book asks: when, if ever, are decisions to embark on climate modification projects justified? If they are justified, in a world without a central governing authority, who should authorize such projects and by what moral and legal right?

Principles of Planetary Climate Raymond T. Pierrehumbert University of Chicago

A unified treatment of physical principles of planetary climates for advanced students and researchers in atmospheric science, Earth and planetary science. ‘The words ‘original’ and ‘textbook’ don’t often go together, but I think it is appropriate to use them both when describing this book. Ray Pierrehumbert has written a book that travels from the fundamentals to the complexities of the climate system as a whole, in a clear and logical fashion, covering not just the planet Earth but the principles underlying the climates of planets more generally. There is no other book quite like it.’ Dr Geoffrey K. Vallis, Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Lab, Princeton University and author of Atmospheric and Oceanic Fluid Dynamics

Contents: Preface; 1. The big questions; 2. Thermodynamics in a nutshell; 3. Elementary models of radiation balance; 4. Radiative transfer in temperaturestratified atmospheres; 5. Scattering; 6. The surface energy balance; 7. Variation of temperature with season and latitude; 8. Evolution of the atmosphere; 9. A peek at dynamics; Appendix.

Physics of the Atmosphere and Climate Second edition Murry L. Salby Macquarie University, Sydney

Murry Salby’s textbook provides an integrated treatment of processes controlling the Earth-atmosphere system for students and researchers. ‘The first edition is a classic. As a textbook it is unequalled in breadth, depth and lucidity. It is the single volume that I recommend to every one of my students in atmospheric science. The new edition improves over the previous edition, if that is possible at all, in three aspects: beautiful illustrations of global processes … from newly available satellite data, new topics of current interest … and a new chapter on the influence of the ocean on the atmosphere. These

changes make the book more useful as a starting point for studying climate change.’ Professor Yuk Yung, California Institute of Technology

Dangerous Neighbors Volcanoes and Cities Grant Heiken

What are the real risks posed by a volcanic eruption near a city – what is fact and what is myth? How have volcanic eruptions affected cities in the past, and how can we learn from these events? Why do communities continue to develop in such locations, despite the obvious threat? In this fascinating book, Grant Heiken explores global examples of cities at risk from volcanoes, from Italy, the US, Mexico, Ecuador, The Philippines, Japan and New Zealand, providing historical and contemporary eruption case studies to illustrate volcanic hazards, and cities’ efforts to respond to them, both good and poor. He shows that truly successful volcanic hazard mitigation cannot be accomplished without collaboration between experts in geology and natural hazards, public health, medicine, city and infrastructure planning, and civil protection. This is a topical and engaging read for anyone interested in the history and future activity of these dangerous neighbors. ‘Dangerous Neighbours is a timely and authoritative wake-up call for over 60 global cities which Grant Heiken has identified within range of the world’s most dangerous active volcanoes. Devising effective disaster reduction measures for the wide range of volcanic hazards at these cities presents one of the greatest environmental challenges of our times.’ Peter J.

Oil in the Environment Legacies and Lessons of the Exxon Valdez Oil Spill Edited by John A. Wiens PRBO Conservation Science, California, and University of Western Australia, Perth

A critical examination of nearly 25 years of scientific study, this book provides a synthesis of scientific information on long-term spill effects. It features contributions from scientists directly involved in studying the Exxon Valdez oil spill, providing an invaluable guide for future studies and unravelling the consequences of environmental disruption. ‘It is now 24 years since approximately 34,500 tonnes of crude oil were released into Prince William Sound, Alaska, as a result of the grounding of the tanker Exxon Valdez … [The] spill has been described as the most intensively studied in history – over 800 peer-reviewed scientific papers have been produced to date and work is ongoing. This volume, written by scientists who conducted many of these scientific studies, provides an excellent compilation and critical evaluation of the evidence gathered in relation to impacts which occurred as a result of the incident. The additional perspective given by time has also allowed a very useful series of ‘lessons learned’ following each of the main topic areas … [I] recommend this volume to anyone involved in studies undertaken to assess impacts of oil and/or chemical spills, and to others interested in this area …’ Robin Law, Centre for Environment, Fisheries and Aquaculture Science 2013 246 x 189 mm 482pp 4 b/w illus.  101 colour illus.  12 maps  27 tables   978-1-107-02717-6 Hardback £65.00 978-1-107-61469-7 Paperback £29.99 For all formats available, see

Nature’s Trust Environmental Law for a New Ecological Age Mary Christina Wood University of Oregon, School of Law

This book exposes the dysfunction of environmental law and offers a transformative approach based on the public trust doctrine. An ancient and enduring principle, the public trust doctrine empowers citizens to protect their inalienable property rights to crucial resources. This book shows how a trust principle can apply from the local to global level to protect the planet. ‘What Silent Spring did for our perception of the environment, Nature’s Trust should do for our perception of environmental protection. Thoroughly researched and beautifully written, this book calls for a revolution in environmental policy and law – now, before it is too late. It is simply brilliant.’ James Gustave Speth, former Dean, Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies, and author of America the Possible: Manifesto for a New Economy 2013 228 x 152 mm 457pp 1 table   978-0-521-19513-3 Hardback £65.00 978-0-521-14411-7 Paperback £27.99 For all formats available, see
