Abstract

This edition has been prepared at the request of the European Union. It describes how one of their RTD Framework V funded projects was prepared and carried to its successful conclusion. It provides an example of international and interdisciplinary research that has provided a new and important source of climatic information and simultaneously has captured the imagination and interest of people far beyond the academic community for whom it was originally intended. In so small way it has brought modern science closer to the general public.
The members of the CLIWOC team gratefully acknowledge the support of the EU and their staff through this project, and for the opportunity to convey their thoughts, views and findings to a wide readership through this volume.
