Almost a century after Tyndall’s discovery in 1859 that changes in the concentration of the atmospheric gases could bring about climate change, and almost 50 years after Arrhenius’ calculation in 1896 of the global warming from human emissions of CO2, a small group of scientists got together to push international cooperation to a higher level in all areas of geophysics. They aimed to coordinate their data gathering and to persuade their governments to spend extra money on research. The result… 

The IPCC Fourth Assessment Report and the fiftieth anniversary of Sputnik.

The IPCC's scientific assessment involves studying the output from various climate models as well as various historical records of atmospheric and marine data to develop scenarios of probable climate changes due to the predicted continuing growth of the concentrations of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.

Remote sensing of atmospheric radiation and dynamics

The term remote sensing can be traced back to the times of Aristotle (e.g. Aristotle’s camera obscura) despite the traditional assumption that this term was coined by Evelyn Pruitt only just 60 years

Multiplicity of solutions of the inverse problem for determining optical atmospheric parameters from remote observations

Global climate change observed during the last two decades of the 20th century has attracted the attention of the world's scientific community. The non-uniqueness of atmospheric aerosols and the

Modelling the coupling between ocean and atmosphere; the global signature of the El Ni\~no/La Ni\~na Southern Oscillation

Satellite and ground-based observations are used to explore the composite oceanic - atmospheric link known as the El Nino/La Nina Southern Oscillation (ENSO) phenomenon, which is closely associated

Satellite time-series analysis

Over the years, there have been a large number of satellite remote-sensing missions that have been providing enormous amounts of remotely sensed data with continuous improvements in the radiometric,

Global mean sea level rise during the recent warming hiatus from satellite-based data

ABSTRACT Satellite remote sensing has provided an unprecedented opportunity to understand the spatio-temporal change of the Earth’s climate system. In this study, we take advantage of the
