The Warming Papers PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Warming Papers free pdf Global warming is arguably the defining scientific issue of modern times, but it is not widely appreciated that the foundations of our understanding are almost two centuries old. The sensitivity of climate to changes in atmospheric CO2 was first estimated about one century ago, and the rise in atmospheric CO2 concentration was discovered half a century ago. The fundamentals of the science underlying the forecast for human-induced climate change were being published and debated long before the issue rose to public prominence in the last few decades. The Warming Papers is a compendium of the classic scientific papers that constitute the foundation of the global warming forecast. The paper trail spans over 175 years, ranging from Fourier and Arrhenius in the 19th Century to Manabe and Hansen in modern times. Archer and Pierrehumbert provide introductions and commentary which places the papers in their context and provide students with tools to develop and extend their understanding of the subject. This book captures the excitement of fresh discovery, and reinforces the principles of climate science for modern scientists, historians, and their students.
