Summary

In Atmosphere, Climate, and Change, world renowned experts on the chemistry of the atmosphere Thomas E. Graedel and Paul J. Crutzen take us behind the scenes of local climate change to reveal the workings of the atmosphere in its larger context, as a component of Earth as a system. By exploring the causes of long-term climate change and the sources and pitfalls of scientific prediction, they give us a new understanding of what changes are likely to occur in the future, and what can be done about them.
