First edition. The holding of the Rome Symposium in October 1961 was a sign that the world was beginning to take climate change very seriously indeed, and that such a complex problem required international co-operation. 115 scientists from 36 nations took part and produced 45 papers covering such diverse disciplines as meteorology, oceanography, geomorphology, geography, hydrology, botany, geology and even archaeology. The symposium's conclusions formed the international response to climate change that extends to the present day.
