Human Impacts on Climate



Human Impacts on Climate Related

Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) - Special Report: The Regional Impacts of Climate Change:: A detailed assessment of the vulnerability of every region on the planet, in eleven chapters. Annexes examine trends and variations, models, and socio-economic baseline data.

WHO: Climate Change and Human Health:: Provides links to much detailed information on climate change science and the health implications of global warming.

Climate Impacts on Freshwater Systems:: An overview of observed responses of the largest lakes in Sweden to a warmer winter climate. Provides brief studies of lake ice, water temperature, water discharge and water level, water chemistry, and biological life. Includes maps, graphs, photographs, references, suggestions for further reading, and links to related sites.

Ecological Impacts of Climate Change:: Presentation by Christopher Field of the Department of Global Ecology, Carnegie Institute of Washington. Includes brief text and pictorial evidence of altered range limits, responses to experiments, responses to earlier springs, trends in plant growth across North America, and trends in US agriculture. [PDF]

Assessment of Knowledge on Impacts of Climate Change:: A detailed report for the German Advisory Council on Global Change (WBGU) into the effects of dangerous anthropogenic interference on ecosystems, food production, water, and socio-economic systems. Studies include: processes causing loss of biodiversity and ecosystem damage; processes driving species endangerment and extinction; projected effects on species and ecosystems. [PDF]

Socioeconomic Impacts of Climate Change in Norway:: Assesses sensitivity in the primary sectors: fisheries, agriculture, and forestry. From the Center for International Climate and Environmental Research (CICERO) in Oslo. [PDF]

Climate Change Impacts on Biodiversity in Australia:: A report of the outcomes of a workshop for researchers and policymakers, sponsored by the Biological Diversity Advisory Committee in Australia. Includes an assessment of whether there is evidence for change that has already occurred, a compilation of knowledge about sensitivities of species and communities, and identification of key characteristics of ecosystems that result in high sensitivity. [PDF]

Climate Change Impacts on the United States:: Report on the potential consequences of climate variability and change on the U.S. in the 21st century.

The Impacts of Climate Change on Portland's Water Supply:: An investigation of the effects of increased temperatures, changed precipitation, and shifts in the historic hydrologic cycle on the fresh water supply from the Bull Run watershed. From the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, University of Washington. [PDF] (2002)

Climate Change Impacts Adaptations and Mitigation Research Group:: CC-IAM is a research group at the University of Lisbon conducting trans-disciplinary research.
