The problems of global change in the geosphere-biosphere, such as those identified in this report, call for a renaissance in the study of the Sun­ Earth system as a dynamic, physical, chemical, living environment that is yielding more and more evidence of cross linkages between all its traditional disciplinary Size: 5MB. The aim of the IGBP International Geosphere-Biosphere Programme book series is to present major results of IGBP research - at both the core-project and the programme-wide level - in a single series. The volumes emphasize the key findings of the programme and each is based on an integration of a large body of work carried out around the world. The International Geosphere - Biosphere Programme: a study of global change, the initial core projects. The book stands as a ten year milestone in the operation of the Past Global Changes (PAGES) Project of the International Geosphere-Biosphere Programme (IGBP). It seeks to provide a quantitative understanding of the Earth s environment in the geologically recent past and to define the envelope of natural environmental variability against which.
