Greenhouse, Gaia and global change: a personal view of the pitfalls of interdisciplinary research

Auteur :

Description :
Global change is, in many ways, a synonym for global geography: the study of processes and their consequences at the human/environment interface. Assessment of highly complex systems demands integrative, interdisciplinary research; the search for, and recognition of, negative feedbacks, and, most importantly, the courage to formulate hypotheses which bridge many single disciplines. The A. illustrates some of the pitfalls of interdisciplinary research with reference to his own research in atmospheric science, by the application of atmospheric science to the study of climatic impacts and consideration of the integration of climatic impacts into global change.
