This book, written by two of the world s leading climate experts, with the support of the Joint Scientific Committee of the World Climate Research Program, is the first comprehensive synthesis of the broad spectrum of our current knowledge of climate science, impacts and the interactions of climate and society. Coverage includes an explanation of the climate system and the processes that govern climate variability and change, where the sources and limitations of climate information come from, how it is modeled and interpreted and the uncertainties of climate prediction, as well.
