An Atlas of the Global Water Cycle
by

Publisher: ANU E Press
ISBN-13: 9781921536892
Number of pages: 299

Description:
The maps and tables in the Atlas document rainfall, evaporation and runoff estimates for the 20th century along with predictions of the same quantities at the end of the 21st century. The predictions are made available here via the ongoing cooperation by the international climate modeling community who routinely archive their results.

Book cover: Earth's Energy Imbalance and ImplicationsEarth's Energy Imbalance and Implications
by - arXiv
Observations of ocean temperature confirm that Earth is absorbing more energy from the sun than it is radiating to space as heat. The energy imbalance provides verification of the dominant role of the human-made greenhouse effect in climate change.
