About this book


This unique book, the first of its kind, provides updated, integrated and organized, theoretical and methodological information on regional climate change and the associated environmental and socio-economic impacts on a regional scale. It presents the most recent findings in the field of long-term climate change, which improve our understanding of the global climate puzzle. Readers are introduced to state-of-the-art research in downscaling and GCMs. This involves the construction of reliable regional climate scenarios and the solution to key problems regarding the assessmanet of the impacts of climate change in the most important geographical areas in the world: from Arctic to Antarctic regions, with special emphasis on the Northern Hemisphere.
