Elsevier, Jan 25, 2001 - Science - 454 pages

This book presents a novel approach in the field of global change by presenting a comprehensive analysis of interhemispheric linkages of climate, present and past, and their effects on human societies. The ultimate goal of this interhemispheric integration is to improve our understanding of causes and mechanisms of climate change to enhance our capability in predicting future changes.

Given the societal interest in global change issues this book offers a new approach for the integration of global information.

It will provide a reference for professional scientists, researchers and graduate students in the fields of climatology, and the earth and environmental sciences.

  • Chapters analyse instrumental atmospheric and oceanic data to address such phenomena as El Nino/Southern Oscillation variability and other climate anomalies such as the Pacific and North Atlantic Oscillation and polar air outbreaks
  • A new systematic methodology is presented that allows objective and verifiable reconstruction of climate fields from sparse data
  • Especially valuable in the context of climate proxy data
