This compelling textbook provides a broad overview of the science underpinning our understanding of our climate, and how it is changing. Presented in clear and accessible language, and requiring only minimal algebra, it enables students to understand how our planet "behaves" under "normal conditions" and how human activity has moved us away from that normal. It walks the student comprehensively through the basic science, including how greenhouse gases absorb radiation and, crucially, a chapter on aerosols, major players in climate change. Diverse case studies and examples illuminate the impact and connections to real world events while review questions and exercises consolidate knowledge. Including the latest results from the IPCC 6th Assessment Report, it concludes by exploring climate modelling, equipping students with an understanding of how to simulate both past climate changes and projections of future climate change. Online resources include lecture slides, solutions and Excel code.
Industry Reviews
'This book is a crystal formed from a total of over 50 years of teaching climate science. Never have so many elements of climate and their interrelationship coalesced in such an easy-to-follow way with clear logic and precise interpretation: a book full of needed information for understanding climate variation and change from start to finish.' Qi S. Hu, University of Nebraska, Lincoln
'This excellent, highly readable introduction to the science underlying contemporary climate change is an instructor's dream. Well written, with clear language, quality graphics and images, and chapters adaptable to any climate change syllabus, it also features outstanding case studies illustrating the consequences of increased greenhouse gas emissions. This engaging book even appeals to the interested layperson.' Petra Zimmermann, Ball State University
'In The Science of Our Changing Climate, the authors, Michael and Gail Box, have condensed a lifetime of knowledge into a single piece of work. This engaging book goes beyond other textbooks on climate change, making it essential reading for undergraduate students studying topics such as environmental science and geography, and would be a welcome addition to the bookcase of anyone interested in global warming.' Matt Smith, University of Worcester
