A New Multimedia Plan Offers Talks by Top Researchers on Climate Impacts and Adaptation
A brand-new multimedia plan of 25 lectures from climate researchers all over the world is targeted at students, researchers and the basic public. Our Warming Planet: Climate Change Impacts and Adaptation includes a printed book supported by electronic slides and a webinar series in which each author presents their lecture. The cast is reliable: 3 quarters of the scientists have actually added to reports from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, and all are recognized specialists in their fields.
Different chapters cover coastal flooding, water resources, farming and more, in addition to particular regions from the Caribbean to Japan and Africa, and biodiversity hot spots in extensive regions.
There will be a book launch on Wednesday, Feb. 16, with hosts including co-editors Cynthia Rosenzweig of the Goddard Institute for Space Studies and Manishka De Mel of Columbia Universitys Center for Climate Systems Research, and Goddard researcher emeritus David Rind. Free biweekly webinars by the chapter authors will begin March 2; they will be tape-recorded for later watching.
The book is the 2nd in a series of volumes from World Scientific Publishing.
