This guide to global climate change is a resource for geology, geography and environmental science students. It is not a complete guide but serves to review and illustrate the key factors of climate change over time and space. Each chapter is a broadly self-contained discussion of a specific sub-issue of importance. Chapters 1 and 2 review the climate system and the causes of climate change. Chapter 3 discusses the methods used to construct climatological time series from various instrumental data, and the reconstruction of palaeoclimates (past climates) from proxy data, while Chapter 4 reviews the use of climate models in attempting to understand the climate system and climate change. Finally, Chapters 5 and 6 are concerned with the topics of palaeoclimatology and contemporary climate change respectively. An extensive list of references is also included.
