"This completely updated book provides a clear, unified and comprehensive view of global climate models, consisting of atmosphere, ocean, land/vegetation and sea ice components, and their application to simulations of present, past and future climates. The book will serve well as a text for graduate students, a valuable reference for climate specialists, and an attractive entry point for scientists from many disciplines who are interested in climate modeling and its applications." --John E. Kutzbach, University of Wisconsin From Reviews of the First Edition "Its thorough treatment of atmosphere, ocean and sea ice modeling should give it wide appeal as a textbook for students and as a reference for climate researchers." --John Walsh, University of Illinois "It will be indispensable as a reference and a guide to a whole new generation of atmospheric modelers." --W. Lawrence Gates "Very clearly written...well researched...up to date and accurate." --F.W. Taylor, Oxford University
