Most widely held works by Hans-Joachim Schellnhuber
Avoiding dangerous climate change by Avoiding Dangerous Climate Change (ADCC) International Symposium on Stabilisation of Greenhouse Gas Concentrations ( Book )
6 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 486 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume presents the most recent findings from the leading international scientists that attended the Avoiding Dangerous Climate Change conference in 2005 hosted by the UK Government. The topics addressed include critical thresholds and key vulnerabilities of the climate system and impacts on human and natural systems
Earth system analysis for sustainability by Dahlem workshop on earth system analysis for sustainability ( Book )
7 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 328 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Global sustainability : a Nobel cause ( Book )
3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 274 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Arising from the 1st Interdisciplinary Nobel Laureate Symposium on Global Sustainability in Potsdam, this book brings together Nobel Laureates in Physics, Chemistry, Medicine, Economics and Peace - top-level representatives from politics and NGOs, and renowned experts on sustainability. In an unparalleled attempt to address humankind's transformation to global sustainability, the authors explore the best scientific and political strategies for reconciling our civilization with its physical and ecological support systems. The book features a radically interdisciplinary approach through a broad range of contributions, covering the latest insights from climate impact research, environmental economics, energy resource analysis, ecosystems science, and other crucial fields. It is for everyone interested in sustainability issues. Intellectually stimulating articles address the complex challenges arising from the need to avoid dangerous climate change, covering both advanced mainstream concepts and novel transformational approaches
The science of disasters : climate disruptions, heart attacks, and market crashes by Armin Bunde ( Book )
8 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 269 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Are there universal laws governing the persistence of weather, and is it possible to predict climate transitions as generated by natural or man-made perturbations? How can one quantify the roller-coaster dynamics of stock markets and anticipate mega-crashes? Can we diagnose the health condition of patients from heartbeat time-series analysis which may even form the basis for infarct prevention? This book tackles these questions by applying advanced methods from statistical physics and related fields to all types of non-linear dynamics prone to disaster. The transdisciplinary analysis is organized in some dozen review articles written by world-class scientists
Earth system analysis : integrating science for sustainability : complemented results of a symposium organized by the Potsdam Institute (PIK) by Hans-Joachim Schellnhuber ( Book )
9 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 202 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
As humanity approaches the 3rd millennium, the sustainability of our present way of life becomes more and more questionable. New paradigms for the long-term coevolution of nature and civilization are urgently needed in order to avoid intolerable and irreversible modifications of our planetary environment. Earth System Analysis is a new scientific enterprise that tries to perceive the earth as a whole, a unique system which is to be analyzed with methods ranging from nonlinear dynamics to macroeconomic modelling. This book, resulting from an international symposium organized by the Potsdam Institute, has 2 aims: first, to integrate contributions from leading researchers and scholars from around the world to provide a multifaceted perspective of what Earth System Analysis is all about, and second, to outline the scope of the scientific challenge and elaborate the general formalism for a well-defined transdisciplinary discourse on this most fascinating issue

Die 2°max-Klimastrategie : ein Memorandum by Lutz Wicke ( Book )
2 editions published in 2010 in German and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In extremis disruptive events and trends in climate and hydrology by Jürgen Kropp ( )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The book addresses a weakness of current methodologies used in extreme value assessment, i.e. the assumption of stationarity, which is not given in reality. With respect to this issue a lot of new developed technologies are presented, i.e. influence of trends vs. internal correlations, quantitative uncertainty assessments, etc. The book not only focuses on artificial time series data, but has a close link to empirical measurements, in order to make the suggested methodologies applicable for practitioners in water management and meteorology
Nach Kopenhagen Neue Strategie zur Realisierung des 2m̊ax-Klimazieles by Lutz Wicke ( )
1 edition published in 2010 in German and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Science for global sustainability : toward a new paradigm by William C Clark ( Book )
2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Geocybernetics : controlling a rather complex dynamical system under uncertainty by Hans-Joachim Schellnhuber ( Book )
2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Global change and the earth system : a planet under pressure by W. L Steffen ( Book )
2 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The interactions between environmental change and human societies have a long, complex history spanning many millennia, but these have changed fundamentally in the last century. Human activities are now so pervasive and profound that they are altering the Earth in ways which threaten the very life support system upon which humans depend. This book describes what is known about the Earth System and the impact of changes caused by humans. It considers the consequences of these changes with respect to the stability of the Earth System and the well-being of humankind; as well as exploring future paths towards Earth System science in support of global sustainability. The enclosed CD-ROM contains all illustrations from the book in electronic form. They can be used for PowerPoint presentations
