Climate alert: climate change monitoring and strategy
Edited by Yuzhu You and Ann Henderson-Sellers
Sydney University Press
Climate change is particularly visible in Australia with globally recognised icons such as the Great Barrier Reef, the Murray-Darling River, Antarctica and the surrounding oceans, all deeply vulnerable and already under attack. As a nation with a rich environmental heritage our response to climate change as individuals and policymakers, relies on an accurate understanding of the current state and evidence of intervention efficacy.
Climate alert presents scholarly research on climate change monitoring and strategy. It covers a diverse range of today's issues and seeks to promote climate change monitoring as an essential tool in both effective mitigation and urgent adaptation.
