These volumes discuss History, Status, and Prediction of Global Climate Change; Potential Large-scale Effects of Global Warming; Public Perceptions Toward Global Climate Change; Effects of Potential Sea-Level Rises; Economics of Potential Climate Change; Response Strategies for Stabilization of Atmospheric Composition; Policy Framework and Systems Management of Global Climate Change. These three volumes are aimed at the following five major target audiences: University and College students Educators, Professional practitioners, Research personnel and Policy analysts, managers, and decision makers and NGOs.

Antoaneta Yotova was born in 1956. She graduated in Physics, with a specialization in Meteorology, from Sofia University, Bulgaria. Since 1979 she has been a Research Associate in the Meteorology, Information Services, Composition of Atmosphere and Hydrosphere Departments of the Bulgarian National Institute of Meteorology and Hydrology (NIMH). Her research is in the fields of general and applied climatology, including topics such as climate variation and change, greenhouse gas emission estimation, and climate and energy interaction, and has resulted in about thirty scientific publications to date. She has been Chief Scientific Investigator for the Bulgarian Case Study in the framework of the Inter-Agency Joint Project DECADES (1994–8). She has also taken part in a number of other national and international projects in her area of expertise carried out at the NIMH
