Edited by Beniston, M.
Hardcover X, 287pp ISBN 9781402023453
Climatic Change is a rapidly evolving domain that has prompted the publication of numerous scientific works in
recent years, reflecting both the public and scientific interest in the topic. This book focuses upon climate processes,
variability and change and applies the general principles related to these issues, particularly in Switzerland. Although
a small country, Switzerland is characterized by complex topography where climatic processes are often
enhanced due to the presence of the Alps. In addition, there is a remarkable density of observational data
in both the natural and social sciences that enable a comprehensive assessment of climate processes, their
long-term trends and their impacts. This book draws upon recent scientific work by the author, as well as
by close colleagues working within scientific networks both in Switzerland and Europe, in order to provide
the reader with up-to-date information on climate processes in the course of the 20th and 21st centuries.
This book is intended for students from the undergraduate level onwards and researchers interested in
climate issues specific to the alpine region.
