Description

This volume is the dedicated work of the International Task Force on Forecasting Environmental Change (1993-1998). It discusses the immense challenges that structural change presents - that is, the possibility that the behaviour of the environment may come to be radically different from that observed in the past - and investigates the considerable implications for model development. We are faced with the possibility, for example, that the waters of the Atlantic Ocean may cease to circulate in the way that they do now, with profound, but hard-to-predict consequences for Northern Europe.
