Die Klimatologie ist in den letzten Jahren zu einer globalen „Systemwissenschaft“ des Klimasystems bzw. des Erdsystems als Ganzes geworden und stellt heute eine hoch interdisziplinäre und extrem problemgetriebene „Mega-Science“ dar. Dieses neue Lehrbuch greift diese Entwicklung auf. Es besteht aus drei gleichmäßig gewichteten Kernbereichen – Teil I: Basiswissen Klimatologie, Teil II: Klimawandel / worldwide swap, Teil III: Klima und Politik / Gesellschaft – und zielt auf die Vermittlung der Zusammenhänge von Klimafaktoren – Klimawandel – Gesellschaft – Politik ab.
