Global Environmental Change is a peer-reviewed international journal publishing high quality, theoretically and empirically rigorous articles, which advance knowledge about the human and policy dimensions of global environmental change.

The journal interprets global environmental change to mean the outcome of processes that are manifest in. The handbook Global Environmental Change is intended to serve as a reliable and comprehensive resource to attend the needs of researchers, teachers, students, and professionals working in science and policy aspects relevant to environment and sustainability.

Entries in the handbook are arranged Global Environmental Change book major section, and are extensively cross-referenced. Thus, this book, presenting an up-to-date view of geological history, the ice ages, the global carbon cycle, the cycles of nitrogen and phosphorus, the fate of ozone and pesticides, human energy use, desertification, forest clearance and biological diversity, is both a splendid introduction to environmental science and a tribute to scientific 5/5(1).

This book is not for those who want easy answers to the relationship between global environmental change and human security. For those with patience enough this book gives a detailed examination of the complex social, health, and economic consequences of environmental change across the globe/5(4).

To understand global environmental change, it is necessary to focus on the interactions of environmental systems, including the atmosphere, the biosphere, the geosphere, and the hydrosphere, and human systems, including economic, political, cultural, and sociotechnical systems.

Human systems and environmental systems meet in two places: where. Environments around the globe are undergoing human-induced change. Human population growth, rapid urbanization, expanding global economy, and the diffusion of western consumer lifestyles are placing increasing pressure on natural and social systems.

Humanity is a major force in global change and shapes ecosystem dynamics from local environments to the biosphere as a whole (Redman, ; Steffen et al., ; Kirch, ).At the same time human societies and globally interconnected economies rely on ecosystems services and support (Millennium Ecosystem Assessment (MA), ).It is now Cited by: Yet understanding the human side--human causes of and responses to environmental change--has not yet received sustained attention.

Global Environmental Change offers a strategy for combining the efforts of natural and social scientists to better understand how our actions influence global change and how global change influences us. Book Description.

This fascinating book is the first comprehensive analysis of the economic, social and political interrelationships between tourism and global environmental change: one of the most significant issues facing humankind today.

The book, a product of the Institutional Dimensions of Global Environmental Change research project (IDGEC), offers both theoretical and empirical perspectives.

Chapters range from analytical overviews to case studies of institutional interaction, interplay management, and regime complexes in areas including climate change, fisheries management. Volcanism and Global Environmental Change discusses the origins, features and timing of volumetrically large volcanic eruptions; methods for assessing gas and tephra release in the modern day and the palaeo-record; and the impacts of volcanic gases and aerosols on the environment, from ozone depletion to mass extinctions.

It contains a comprehensive sequenced discussion covering the significant themes of global change, their cause, and how they can be monitored through time. In doing so, it represents a good source of basic information, and a general.

Experts discuss the risks global environmental change poses for the human security, including disaster and disease, violence, and increasing inequity.
