Anthropogenic climate change in Israel

Lucy Michaels, Pinhas Alpert

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


CLIMATE AND ARCHAEOLOGICAL records from the last ten thousand years show that there has always been significant climate variability in the East Mediterranean (Issar and Zohar 2004). As we enter the twenty-first century, however, Israel's climate is entering a new period of uncertainty. Over the last forty years, the unexpected ways in which humans influence the climate have become increasingly evident. This chapter surveys how researchers have come to understand Israel's climate, with a focus on the significant science and policy challenge posed by global warming.
