Global warming the complete briefing by J. T Houghton( Book )
80 editions published between 1994 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 4,341 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The author "explores the scientific basis of global warming and the likely impacts of climate change on human society before addressing the action that could be taken by governments, by industry and by individuals to mitigate the effects."--Cover
The physics of atmospheres by J. T Houghton( Book )
50 editions published between 1977 and 2007 in English and Japanese and held by 1,440 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In the third edition of The Physics of Atmospheres, John Houghton has revised his acclaimed textbook to bring it completely up-to-date. The first two editions received excellent reviews, and the new edition will again prove to be invaluable as a text for students of atmosphere science." "The Physics of Atmospheres provides a comprehensive and concise description of the physical processes governing the structure and the circulation of the atmosphere. Simple physical models are constructed by applying the principles of classical thermodynamics, radiative transfer and fluid mechanics, together with analytical and numerical techniques. These models are applied to real planetary atmospheres. In this new edition, chapters have been introduced on topics of strong contemporary interest such as chaos and atmospheric predictability and climate and climate change. The chapters on global observation (especially through remote sensing) and numerical modelling have also been substantially extended, and all parts of the book have been updated." "Like its predecessors, this new edition will be an essential textbook for advanced undergraduate and graduate courses in meteorology, atmospheric physics, remote sensing, climate science, environmental science, and planetary science. Researchers and professionals in atmospheric physics and meteorology will also find it a state-of-the-art review of their subjects."--Jacket

Climate Change 1995 - The Science of Climate Change is the most comprehensive and up-to-date assessment available of current scientific understanding of human influences on past, present and future climate. The IPCC prepared its first comprehensive assessment report in 1990, with subsequent supplementary reports in 1992 and 1994. Climate Change 1995 is the first full sequel to the original assessment. The report includes an overview of the factors governing climate and climate change; quantification of the sources of the globally important greenhouse gasses and other pollutants arising from human activities, and a review of the chemical and biological processes governing their removal from the atmosphere; analyses of data on climates of the distant past, and an assessment of recent trends in climate during the industrial era, which has witnessed the ever-growing impact of human activities on the global environment; assessment of the strengths and weaknesses of the various mathematical models of climate used by today's researchers for understanding past and present climate, and for calculating possible future climates; discussion of recent research aimed at the detection of a human influence on the climate of the last century; projections of possible future changes in global climate and sea-level, based on a range of scenarios of future emissions of pollutants from human activity; and a list of research and observational priorities needed to further improve scientific understanding in key areas. The IPCC reports represent the primary source of scientific and technical advice for the implementation of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change. This assessment therefore forms the standard scientific reference for all those concerned with climate change and its consequences, including policy makers in governments and industry worldwide, and researchers and senior-level students in environmental science, meteorology, climatology, biology, ecology and atmospheric chemistry

Le réchauffement climatique un état des lieux complet by J. T Houghton( Book )
2 editions published in 2011 in French and held by 86 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Spécialiste en physique de l'atmosphère et ancien membre du Groupe d'experts intergouvernemental sur l'évolution du climat (GIEC), Sir John Houghton est l'un des rares scientifiques du monde qui puisse légitimement qualifier son ouvrage d' "état des lieux complet" sur le changement climatique. Dans ce livre, il y expose, en douze chapitres, les dernières découvertes en climatologie et les dernières projections concernant les impacts du changement climatique au XXIe siècle, mais également les stratégies d'adaptation et d'atténuation qui existent. Ainsi, il montre, par exemple, comment ralentir ou stabiliser le changement climatique en réduisant les émissions de gaz à effet de serre générées par les activités humaines. Il aborde en particulier les enjeux associés à notre consommation d'énergie, à nos habitudes de transport et à d'autres changements globaux comme la déforestation ou la croissance démographique. Pourtant complexes, ces thématiques sont traitées de manière claire et complète, en se basant sur le quatrième rapport d'évaluation du GIEC et de nombreuses autres sources citées tout au long de l'ouvrage. Ce livre se démarque dès lors des ouvrages polémiques, en exposant les seuls faits établis scientifiquement. Il explique notamment comment fonctionne un modèle climatique et expose systématiquement les incertitudes associées aux résultats de ces modèles. À la fois rigoureux et accessible, abondamment illustré et documenté, cet ouvrage donnera aux profanes les clefs de compréhension du changement climatique, tout en proposant aux lecteurs avisés un aperçu complet de l'état actuel de nos connaissances sur les différentes facettes de l'un des principaux défis du XXIe siècle."--P.
