Continues to fill gaps between the descriptive, conceptual, and transformative sustainability scienceSustainability is increasingly important across functional sectors and scientific disciplines. Policy-makers, practitioners,and academics continue to wrestle with the complexity of risk, resilience, and sustainability, but because of the necessarytransdisciplinary focus, it is difficult to find authoritative content in a single source. Sustainability Science: ManagingRisk and Resilience for Sustainable Development, Second Edition, contributes to filling that gap and is completely revisedwith several new chapters. It asserts that all efforts for the sustainability of humankind are undermined by the fourfundamental challenges of complexity, uncertainty, ambiguity, and dynamic change. While there are no silver bullets, thisbook contends that we need systems approaches, risk approaches, participatory approaches, and resilience approachesto address each of them and endeavours to provide such. With that in mind, this book describes the state of the world(Part I), proposes a way to approach the world (Part II), and suggests how to set out to change the world (Part III).

European Glacial Landscapes: The Holocene presents the current state of knowledge on glacial landscapes of Europe and nearby areas over the Holocene to deduce the influence of atmospheric and oceanic currents and the insolation forcing variability and volcanic activity on Holocene paleoclimates, the existence of asynchronies in the timing of occurrence of glacier expansion and shrinkage during the Holocene, time lags between the identification of oceanic and atmospheric changes and those occurring in glacial extension during the Holocene, the role of Holocene glaciers on the climate of Europe, and on sea level variability, and the delimitation of landscapes that need special protection. Students, academics and researchers in Geography, Geology, Environmental Sciences, Physics and Earth Science departments will find this book provides novel findings of all the major European Regions in a single publication, with updated information about Holocene glacial geomorphology and paleo-climatology and clear figures that model the landscapes covered.
