Climate policy options post-2012 : European strategy, technology and adaptation after Kyoto by Bert Metz( Book )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This special issue of the Climate Policy journal addresses the following key questions: * What long-term range of policies for climate change adaptation and mitigation should Europe pursue to adequately enhance sustainability on a global level? * What are the implications of long-term European climate strategy for the design of a global post-2012 climate regime? * What are the key concerns of different stakeholders and how will these concerns impact on long-term climate policy?These questions were discussed during two workshops, commissioned by the European Forum on Integrated Environmental As
Climate change scenarios for the United Kingdom : the UKCIP02 scientific report by Mike Hulme( Book )

Broad scale coastal simulation : new techniques to understand and manage shorelines in the third millennium( Book )

3 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume details research underpinning the 'Coastal Simulator' developed by the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research. The Simulator provides a framework to analyze long term coastal evolution taking account of all the relevant factors. These include the uncertain future climate and other conditions, such as land use change and allows evaluation of diverse management responses. Coastal zones exemplify the environmental pressures we face: their beauty attracts settlement, they offer potential for diverse economic activities, and they are sensitive natural habitats for important species, as well as providing a range of ecosystem services. They are also extremely vulnerable to the vicissitudes of climate change, which include rising sea levels and changes in extreme events such as storms. With large populations living in coastal and estuarine cities facing the ongoing threat of inundation, coordinated management is essential, especially as coastal zones form a linked system in which piecemeal, uncoordinated management could be counterproductive. The Simulator's current detailed application to the Norfolk coast goes from global climate modelling and broad socio-economic change to the details of evolving coastal habitats, coastal erosion and coastal flood risk and their societal implications. This framework reflects the work of a multi-disciplinary team of key players who analysed these diverse factors in a coherent and integrated manner. The book offers a compelling synthesis of the lessons learned so far at national and international levels, drawing on the expertise of policy makers as well as respected figures in the field

The economics of climate change : the Stern review by N. H Stern( Book )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"There is now clear scientific evidence that emissions from economic activity, particularly the burning of fossil fuels for energy, are causing changes to the Earth's climate. A sound understanding of the economics of climate change is needed in order to underpin an effective global response to this challenge. The Stern Review is an independent, rigourous and comprehensive analysis of the economic aspects of this crucial issue. It has been conducted by Sir Nicholas Stern, Head of the UK Government Economic Service, and a former Chief Economist of the World Bank. The Economics of Climate Change will be invaluable for all students of the economics and policy implications of climate change, and economists, scientists and policy makers involved in all aspects of climate change."--Taken from Cambridge University Press Web site, publisher of a print version of this publication

Estimating uncertainty in future assessments of climate change by Peter Challenor( )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Any attempt to predict the future involves uncertainty. Our aim in this project is to quantify the uncertainties in the Tyndall Integrated Assessment Process. Where the process involves numerical models we propose to use Bayesian methods developed for complex computer codes to produce uncertainty estimates. We will extend these methods to derive forecasts of extreme values with associated uncertainty. For those parts of the integrated assessment process that are not amenable to numerical treatment we will demonstrate methods for handling linguistic information using fuzzy sets and methods for merging expert judgments with scarce numerical data."--Summary Web page
