CR Special 5

Climate Research Vol. 11, No. 1 (1998)

Regional assessments of climate change and policy implications


Publication date: December 17, 1998

Co-edited by Laurence S. Kalkstein, Brent M. Yarnal, and Joel D. Scheraga


With the increasing interest in regional-scale impacts of climate change, this CR SPECIAL includes the work of leading scientists who have studied how climate change might impact particularly vulnerable regions around the world. Key topics include those which have been identified as particularly sensitive in a warmer world, and include: impacts on river basins, agricultural problems, forestry issues, regional health impacts, sea level rise implications, and others. With the upcoming development of the Third Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, the messages contained within this issue are most timely.
