The second revised edition of the Encyclopedia of Quaternary Science, provides both students and professionals with an up-to-date reference work on this important and highly varied area of research. There are lots of new articles, and many of the articles that appeared in the first edition have been updated to reflect advances in knowledge since 2006, when the original articles were written. The second edition will contain about 375 articles, written by leading experts around the world. This major reference work is richly illustrated with more than 3,000 illustrations, most of them in colour. Research in the Quaternary sciences has advanced greatly in the last 10 years, especially since topics like global climate change, geologic hazards and soil erosion were put high on the political agenda. This second edition builds upon its award-winning predecessor to provide the reader assured quality along with essential updated coverage Contains 357 broad-ranging articles (4310 pages) written at a level that allows undergraduate students to understand the material, while providing active researchers with a ready reference resource for information in the field. Facilitates teaching and learning The first edition was regarded by many as the most significant single overview of Quaternary science ever, yet Editor-in-Chief, Scott Elias, has managed to surpass that in this second edition by securing even more expert reviews whilst retaining his renowned editorial consistency that enables readers to navigates seamlessly from one unfamiliar topic to the next

It is widely accepted in the scientific community that climate change is a reality, and that changes are happening with increasing rapidity. In this second edition, leading climate researcher Barrie Pittock revisits the effects that global warming is having on our planet, in light of ever-evolving scientific research. Presenting all sides of the arguments about the science and possible remedies, Pittock examines the latest analyses of climate change, such as new and alarming observations regarding Arctic sea ice, the recently published IPCC Fourth Assessment Report, and the policies of the new Australian Government and how they affect the implementation of climate change initiatives. New material focuses on massive investments in large-scale renewables, such as the kind being taken up in California, as well as many smaller-scale activities in individual homes and businesses which are being driven by both regulatory and market mechanisms. The book includes extensive endnotes with links to ongoing and updated information, as well as some new illustrations. While the message is clear that climate change is here (and in some areas, might already be having disastrous effects), there is still hope for the future, and the ideas presented here will inspire people to take action. Climate Change: The Science, Impacts and Solutions is an important reference for students in environmental or social sciences, policy makers, and people who are genuinely concerned about the future of our environment.

Environmentalists Across The World Have Opined That The Unprecedented Ferocity Of Nature Be It The Catastrophic Floods And Rains In Orissa And Mozambique Or The Devastating Drought And Famine In Africa And Mongolia Is Connected To Global Warming, Which Is Primarily A Human- Induced Phenomenon Caused By The Increasing Use Of Fuels To Run Our Economies. Glaciers Thinning In Antarctica And Receding Of Himalayan Glaciers Are Being Considered As Alarm Bells For The Entire World. Recently, Scientists Have Predicted That If Global Warming Goes On, Nothing Can Prevent Large Chunks Of Earth'S Surface Coastal Bangladesh, Maldives, Alpine Meadows In The Rocky Mountains And Some Barrier Lands From Being Swept Away In The Forseeable Future. It Has Been Aptly Observed By David King, Uk Government S Chief Scientific Adviser, Climate Change Poses A Bigger Threat To The Planet Than Terrorism. The World Not Only Needs To Take A Tough Stand Against Any Further Investments That Support And Prolong Our Dependence On Fossil Fuels, But Also To Make Deep Cuts In The Carbon Emissions If Humanity Is To Survive. Realising The Urgent Need For Arresting The Trend; For Developing Awareness In The Readers About The Preservation Of Biodiversity And Its Significance For Life, Sustainability And Equity; And For Warning Against The Consequences Of Environmental Exploitation As Well, The Present Volume Has Been Compiled. An Attempt Has Been Made Here To Study Not Only The General Causes And Effects Of Global Warming But Also To Highlight Its Effect On Particular Regions. Kyoto Protocol An International Law, Aiming To Reduce Greenhouse Gases Emissions Has Been Analytically Studied And Remedial Measures Have Also Been Suggested In This Volume.The Book Would Be Highly Useful For Students And Researchers Of Environment. It Would Be Useful To Government Executives And Ngos Concerned With Environment And Pollution Problems. Since The Laymen Are Deeply Interested In Clean Environment, The Book Would Be Of Great Interest To Them.
