0 Reviews
The Climate Change 2001 volumes of the Third Assessment Report of the IPCC provide the most comprehensive assessment of climate change since its second report, Climate Change 1995. This Working Group II volume brings us completely up-to-date on the vulnerability of socio-economic and natural systems to climate change. Written by the world's leading experts, the volumes of the Third Assessment Report will again prove to be invaluable for researchers, students, and policymakers, and will form the standard scientific reference for policy decisions in governments and industry the world over for many years to come.
