Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
This volume forms part of the Third Assessment Report produced by the Working Group II of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. The 14 chapters analyze a large body of observations of all parts of the climate system; catalog increasing concentrations of atmospheric greenhouse gases; assess current understanding of the processes and feedbacks which govern the climate system; project scenarios of future climate change using a wide range of models of future emissions of greenhouses gases and aerosols; study whether a human influence on climate can be identified; and suggest gaps in information and understanding that remain in the knowledge pertaining to climate change. Edited by Houghton and Y. Ding (co-chairs of Working Group I, IPCC), and six administrators and scientists from the Working Group I Technical Support Unit. Annotation c.
