About this book

This unique book, the first of its kind, provides updated, integrated and organized, theoretical and methodological information on regional climate change and the associated environmental and socio-economic impacts on a regional scale. It presents the most recent findings in the field of long-term climate change, which improve our understanding of the global climate puzzle. Readers are introduced to state-of-the-art research in downscaling and GCMs. This involves the construction of reliable regional climate scenarios and the solution to key problems regarding the assessmanet of the impacts of climate change in the most important geographical areas in the world: from Arctic to Antarctic regions, with special emphasis on the Northern Hemisphere.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"This book addresses the problems of detecting and modelling regional climate change. The book is composed of papers that were presented on the scientific meeting in Tarragona in May 2000. … Individual papers are well written and illustrated. … I can imagine that each of these outstanding and very knowledgeable scientists, active contributors to the IPCC process, gave an interesting lecture at the meeting." (Oleg A. Anisimov, WMO-Bulletin, Vol. 53 (2), 2004)

"This book contains 53 contributions selected from presentations at the international scientific meeting on the Detection and modelling of recent climate change … . the contributions have been edited to provide an overview of the key features of regional climate modeling. … This book provides a very detailed treatment of regional-scale modeling, with contributions from around the world … . this book has a good index and a useful list of abbreviations. It is wide-ranging and will be useful to researchers in the field." (Frances Drake, The Holocene, Vol. 13 (2), 2003)

"The book starts with a nice introduction on the homogenization problem of long climatic records. … the individual papers contained in the book are an important source of information if one is interested in a summary of recent work of a variety of groups doing climate variability analysis in Europe. Additionally some of the papers go beyond that offering comprehensive introductions and information to the respective topics." (A. Hense, Meteorologische Zeitschrift, Vol. 12 (1), 2003)
