The science and politics of global climate change : a guide to the debate by Andrew Emory Dessler ( Book )
41 editions published between 2005 and 2011 in English and held by 1,661 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In this primer, Dessler and Parson combine their expertise in atmospheric science and public policy to help scientists, policy makers, and the public sort through the conflicting claims in the climate-change debate. The authors explain how scientific and policy debates work, summarize present scientific knowledge and uncertainty about climate change, and discuss the available policy options. Along the way, they explain why the debate is so confusing."--BOOK JACKET
The chemistry and physics of stratospheric ozone by Andrew Emory Dessler ( )
15 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 953 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Chemistry and Physics of Stratospheric Ozone will provide an in-depth account of chemical and physical properties of stratospheric ozone, which will be valuable to a wide audience. The research of the last decade has produced as many arguments as answers, and the author provides a good account of both the accepted and provocative resolutions. * Focuses on the important aspects of stratospheric ozone that are needed to understand most of the literature * Provides extensive discussion of the natural and human-induced changes to the "ozone layer" * Includes homework problems at the end of each chapter
Introduction to modern climate change by Andrew Emory Dessler ( Book )
13 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 240 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book is aimed at non-science-major undergraduates and is tightly focused on the problem of anthropogenic climate change. The first half of the book focuses on the science of modern climate change, including evidence that the Earth is warming and a basic description of climate physics. It also covers concepts like radiative forcing, feedbacks, and the carbon cycle. The book shows many algebraibased calculations to illustrate the science. The second half of the book goes beyond science to address non-science issues such as the economics and our policy options to address climate change. The goal of the book is for a student to leave the class ready to engage in the public policy debate on this issue"
