This book explains in a simple but also exhaustive and professional way the theme of climate change and their impacts through a direct involvement of the Italian scientists of international level.
The book wants to offer the bases of the dynamics of the main climate processes of the Mediterranean basin in its principal components (atmosphere, ocean, soil, complete cycle of water) through the analysis of their interactions and with a particular attention towards what is a certainty and what we should reflect upon as scientists but also as private citizens.
The second part of the book deals with climate change on the whole Mediterranean area, with a particular attention to the Italian situation.
Nowadays the theme of climate change can’t be ignored. This book aims to offer to uninformed people all the knowledges to create a major awareness, to the experts,sceptics or catastrophists some opportunity of qualified meditation and to those people who are politically and socially responsible a major sensibility towards the environment and the safeguard of the planet.
