Global Climate Change and Human Health examines the environmental crisis from a public health and clinical health perspective, giving students and clinicians the information they need to prepare for the future of health care.

Inclusively determining what these threats are while seeking .   Climate Change and Human Development This book brings together the work of leading international development and environment organisations in studying the impacts of climate change on poor communities and how they are learning to adapt and build their resilience. One of those influences is the effect of human activities, especially those that change the atmospheric com- position with long-lived greenhouse gases. Climate fluctuates naturally on very long time scales (thousands of years), and it is the rapidity of the projected changes that are a major source of concern.

In this chapter, the climate system and its constituent parts of the atmosphere, ocean, land surface, and cryosphere are described. The concepts of hydrostatic balance and lapse rate are introduced. The temperature structure of the atmosphere and the definitions of the troposphere, stratosphere. Weather is the day-to-day state of the atmosphere and its short-term (from hours to a few weeks) variations such as temperature, humidity, precipitation, cloudiness, visibility or wind.
