Summary

The book provides a consistent treatment of climate variability at time scales longer than interannual. The first part describes what we know of the observed decadal variability, identifying the major phenomena that are involved. The second part contains contributions describing the present level of understanding of decadal variability. Researchers and students will find the book useful as a reference, and scientists in related disciplines (geology, biogeochemistry, paleoclimatology) will have an overview of current knowledge.
