Vital Climate Graphics

Sven Ake Bjorke, Global Resources Information Database (GRID)

This collection of graphic images, prepared by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change of the United Nations, provides visual information on climate change issues that makes it possible to grasp complex facts more quickly and fully than would be possible through written text alone. The images consist of posters, maps, graphs, and flow charts that present introductory material on climate change, information on observed trends, and information on the potential impacts of climate change. Each image is accompanied by a brief written description of its content.
