This unusual book covers an enormous panorama of facts and theories about the possible impact on the world's climate due to nuclear war, major meteor impacts, and volcanic eruptions. It contains summaries and critical analyses of a wide range of research from both the Soviet Union and the West. Examines existing evidence and theories and uses them to extrapolate the effects of events more serious than any on which we have good measurements. Makes available to Western readers the extensive information developed by Soviet scientists, and their perspectives on these important questions. Chapters cover three-dimensional numerical modelling of the CO2 effect on climate, volcanic activity on other planets, studies in the USSR of the impact of nuclear tests on the atmosphere and climate, the nature of the Tunguska object, and much more.
