Meteorology & Climate Change

How fast is the Earth warming? What do the most recent and updated climate models show will be the effects? And, when will those impacts hit? Meteorological and climatological research is at the center of wrestling with climate change—its path and its effects. 

On this page you’ll find current and ground-breaking meteorological and climatological research—hand-picked from both books and journals—focused on these urgent questions. 

Climate Action based on solid assessment of climate change signals

Fred Kucharski	 © Springer Naturenpj Climate © Springer Nature 2020We had an interview with Dr. Fred Kucharski, Research Scientist in the Earth System Physics Section at the Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP), Italy. We asked him to share his thoughts with us on the nature of his work and his commitment to addressing the SDGs. Dr. Kucharski is also Editor-in-Chief of our open access journal npj Climate and Atmospheric Science. Enjoy reading the interview.

9783030601478The Springer Handbook of Atmospheric Measurements

Measured data are the basis for describing and understanding the Earth's climate and its changes. The Springer Handbook of Atmospheric Measurements provides a clearly structured, concise and comprehensive account of the huge variety of atmospheric and related measurements relevant to environmental physicists and ecologists for the purpose of climate research. Presenting the whole range of in-situ and remote sensing methods that are indispensable to monitor all facets of the climate, this handbook contributes towards describing and predicting climate change and thus underpins the goals as specified in SDG-13.
