It is only relatively recently that geoscientists have begun to consider how the Earth's crustal systems will respond to the rapid climate change that is expected in the next century.
Wiley is pleased to announce the publication of Climate Forcing of Geological Hazards, the most up-to-date resource on this new and fast-moving subject.
The book addresses a wide range of issues relating to the ways in which climate change may force geological and geomorphological hazards. The Chapters reflect an interdisciplinary field of research that is only now becoming recognized as important in the context of the likely impacts and implications of anthropogenic climate change.
Climate Forcing of Geological Hazards combines fully updated and revised papers resulting from a colloquium hosted by the Royal Society in 2009, with new material that fills in some of the less well covered or absent discussions in the original meeting.
