About the Authors
  • This book describes mathematical techniques for interpreting measurements of greenhouse gases in order to learn about their sources and sinks. The majority of the book gives general descriptions of techniques, but the last third covers the applications to carbon dioxide, methane, chlorofluorocarbons and other gases implicated in global change.

    • The subject area is very topical given the current global climate change debate
    • This is the first book to comprehensively cover this area
    • Ian Enting is one of the world's leading experts on this subject
