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.

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews:

"Martin Beniston ... has compiled a book that could be called a primer on climate change issues with a regional focus on Switzerland. ... It is well written and understandable for the nonspecialist. ... the book can be fully recommended. This compact volume will be of help to everyone seeking an overview and guidance in regional climate change studies." (Joerg Matschullat, Environmental Geology, Vol. 50 (1), 2006)
