Drawing on practical examples supported by scientific evidence, this book demonstrates how preserving and managing local climates can complement global mitigation and adaptation as a third way to address the effects of climate change.

The book outlines the mechanisms that shape the local climate components and relevant micrometeorological processes and provide the building blocks for transforming micro- and mesoclimates. Setting out various monitoring methods that help measure and manage these processes, it explores many examples of successful local climate management from different geographies and shows how it is possible to improve the local climate with ingenuity and smart practice.

The knowledge and examples presented in this book aim to inspire us to see the world as a global mosaic of local climates that can be systematically managed, area by area, local climate by local climate, thereby restoring land health and offering protection from climate extremes.

A longtime collector and owner of two fine art galleries, Alterman wanted to create a user-friendly book intended not only to educate collectors and enthusiasts about this art but to help train one's eye.
