Sea-Level Rise and Coastal Subsidence: Causes, Consequences, and Strategies

by Springer

Greenhouse-induced climate warming increasingly appears to be a reality, and the warming climate will be accompanied by an accelerated sea level rise - as much as 60-100 cm over the next century. What is commonly absent in the discussion of rising sea level, however, is the role played by the subsidence of low-lying coastal areas, which can ...;

Global Environmental Change: The Threat to Human Health

by Worldwatch Institute

SummaryOver the past two-to-three hundred years, humanity’s ecological footprint has ballooned to such an extent that we are now fundamentally altering the planet. We have transformed the Earth’s land surface and altered the function of its ecosystems, and we are triggering the rapid loss of both terrestrial and marine life. We are ...;

Evaluating Climate Change and Development

by Eurospan Ltd

Climate change has become one of the most important global issues of our time, with far-reaching natural, socio- economic, and political effects. To address climate change and development issues from the perspective of evaluation, an international conference was held in Alexandria, Egypt. This book distills the essence of that timely conference, ...;

Mangrove forests, climate change and sea level rise : hydrological influences on community structure and survival, with examples from the Indo-West Pa

by Earthprint Ltd

An evaluation of the potential response of mangrove communities to changes in key environmental variables associated with a warmer world. Past and present distribution patterns and ecological data on community structure and species diversity provide insights to possible responses to sea level rise.;

The Black Sea Flood Question: Changes in Coastline, Climate and Human Settlement

by Springer

Stimulated by 'Noah’s Flood Hypothesis' proposed by W. Ryan and W. Pitman in which a catastrophic inundation of the Pontic basin was linked to the biblical story, leading experts in Black Sea research (including oceanography, marine geology, paleoclimate, paleoenvironment, archaeology, and linguistic spread) provide overviews of their data and ...;

Global and Regional Climate Interaction: The Caspian Sea Experience

by Springer

The problem of global and regional climate interactions is receiving increased attention in light of anticipated global warming and its possible environmental and societal consequences. The Caspian Sea Basin is a region where such consequences may be particularly significant. This book traces the complex linkages between climatic changes in ...;

Influence of Climate Change on the Changing Arctic and Sub-Arctic Conditions

by Springer

The current warming trends in the Arctic may shove the Arctic system into a seasonally ice-free state not seen for more than one million years. The melting is accelerating, and researchers were unable to identify natural processes that might slow the deicing of the Arctic. Such substantial additional melting of Arctic and Antarctic glaciers and ...;

by Earth Policy Institute

If we have learned anything over the past year, it is that accounting systems that do not tell the truth can be costly. Faulty accounting systems have driven some of the world's largest corporations into bankruptcy, costing millions of people their lifetime savings, retirement income, and jobs.In The Earth Policy Reader, coauthored with Janet ...;

Glaciers and Climate Change

by CRC Press/Taylor & Francis Group

In this text meteorology and the theory of glacier flow are brought together, providing a basic understanding of how glaciers respond to climate change. Attention is given to the microclimate of glaciers and the physical processes that regulate the exchange of energy and mass between glacier surface and atmosphere. Simple analytical and numerical ...;
