Climatic Change (2010) 100:107–111 DOI 10.1007/s10584-010-9839-0 Adapting to climate change: an evolving research programme Nigel W. Arnell Received: 25 February 2010 / Accepted: 11 March 2010 / Published online: 19 May 2010 © Springer Science+Business Media B.V. 2010 1 Introduction Since its launch in 1975 (inaugural issue in 1977), the scientific issues addressed by pa- pers published in Climatic Change have changed considerably. Nuclear winter came and went, and papers have come from an increasingly diverse range of disciplines. Most obvious, of course, has been the emergence to overwhelming dominance of papers concerned with the processes and consequences associated with the climate changes driven by increasing human emissions of greenhouse gases. Within this theme too, it is possible to track the evolution of different topics over the last thirty years. In the pages of Climatic Change, as within the climate change research community, increased attention has been given to adaptation to a changing climate. Here, I examine the scale and characteristics of adaptation research in Climatic Change, draw some general conclusions from the research published in Climatic Change, and suggest from this some future research directions. 2 A quantitative analysis Between volume 1 in 1977 and volume 99 (1–2)
