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
In extremis disruptive events and trends in climate and hydrology by Jürgen Kropp( )
9 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in English and held by 377 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
Earth system analysis for sustainability by Dahlem Workshop on Earth System Analysis for Sustainability( Book )
6 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 339 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The book presents the complete story of the inseparably intertwined evolution of life and matter on Earth, focusing on four major topics: long-term geosphere-biosphere interaction and the possibility of using extrasolar planets to test various geophysical hypotheses, the Quaternary Earth System's modes of operation, current planetary dynamics under human pressure, and transition to global sustainability."--BOOK JACKET
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 277 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
Global sustainability : a Nobel cause ( Book )
3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 276 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

Climate refugees "the human face of climate change" ( Visual )
2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 161 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"[E]xplore[s] the global human impact of climate change and its serious destabilizing effect on international politics. The film turns the distant concept of global warming into a concrete human problem with enormous worldwide consequences ... features a variety of leading scientists, relief workers, security consultants, and major political figures, including John Kerry and Newt Gingrich. Whether human-caused or a product of nature, the changing climate is already creating humanitarian disasters and will inevitably lead to worldwide political instability."
