... This volume reflects not only the proceedings of that workshop but considerable intervening work, both by the invited authors and their colleagues, and by anonymous reviewers and the book's editorial committee. THE CHALLENGE Natural climate variability on decade-to-century time scales is best defined in terms of the big-chemical-physical system that must be studied, the principal components of that system, the mechanisms active within each component, and the interactions between components.

... For example, recent ocean modeling studies suggest that significant changes in the deep-water circulation may occur over time scales of decades to centuries, and that these changes might critically affect climate. A second ocean model finding is that the thermohaline circulation can oscillate between quasi-steady 'equilibrium' modes.

... 3 4. Climate data must be made freely available to researchers worldwide; data from many sources contribute to the solution of research problems.

This material may be derived from roughly machine-read images, and so is provided only to facilitate research.
