11 (1): Rates of Change

Eds: Kull C & Paul A

PAGES news, vol. 11(1), 1-24, 2003


This issue of PAGES news addresses rates of change. How fast did the climate system respond in the past? Estimates of past rates of change provide us with a long-term perspective on recent changes and help us to appreciate their magnitude. Furthermore, they give us a taste of how rapid climate change may operate in the future.
