Recent Hurricane Research: Climate, Dynamics, and Societal Impacts
by Anthony Lupo
Publisher: InTech 2011
Number of pages: 616
This book represents recent research on tropical cyclones and their impacts, and a wide range of topics are covered. An updated global climatology is presented, including the global occurrence of tropical cyclones and the terrestrial factors that may contribute to the variability and long-term trends in their occurrence. Research also examines long term trends in tropical cyclone occurrences and intensity as related to solar activity.

In this interdisciplinary review, we are guided by our interest in exploring the nexus between climate and concepts such as energy, entropy, symmetry, response, multiscale interactions, and its potential relevance in terms of numerical modeling.
