Assessing Surprises and Nonlinearities in Greenhouse Warming: Proceedings of an Interdisciplinary Workshop
Researchers examine the existing state of knowledge regarding surprises (effects that are not natural extensions of existing trends) and nonlinearities (responses disproportionate to changes in stimuli that may threaten adaptive capacities) in natural and socioeconomic systems confronted with human-induced climatic change.
