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.
by Charlie Zender - University of California, Irvine , 2011
This monograph describes considerations pertinent to understanding and simulating the distribution and effects of natural aerosols in Earth's atmosphere. The majority of the aerosol-specific sections focus on mineral dust.

This document describes processes and radiative transfer models of the Earth system. Our approach is to present a detailed derivation of the tools of radiative transfer needed to predict the radiative quantities which drive climate.
by F.W. Henkel - T. F. Unwin , 1911
The application of dynamical methods, the development of theories of atmospheric circulation, the establishment of regular meteorological observatories, have all helped in throwing light upon some of the obscurer problems of the science.
by Robert DeCourcy Ward - Ginn & company , 1899
The object of this book is to supply a guide in the elementary observational and inductive studies in meteorology. This Manual is not intended to replace the text-books, but is designed to prepare the way for their more intelligent use.

This Wikibook deals with climate change, in particular the recent global warming. The book is really two parts: first, a primer on the science of climate change, and second, a study of societal implications of climate change.
by Peter Moir - BookBoon , 2012
The book introduces the basics about moisture in air, which is the driving force for our weather. The subsequent chapters cover a range of everyday examples showing the impact these weather changes have around our home, garden and workplace.

by Abdel Hannachi - InTech , 2012
This is a general introduction to the popular topic of climate variability. It explores various aspects of climate variability and change from different perspectives, ranging from the low-frequency variability to the adaptation to climate change.
by Anthony Lupo - InTech , 2011
The book presents recent research on tropical cyclones and their impacts. An updated global climatology is presented, including the occurrence of tropical cyclones and the terrestrial factors that may contribute to variability in their occurrence.

Observations of ocean temperature confirm that Earth is absorbing more energy from the sun than it is radiating to space as heat. The energy imbalance provides verification of the dominant role of the human-made greenhouse effect in climate change.
by H. Wendell, R. Longley - John Wiley & Sons , 1944
This book is an introductory treatment of basic meteorological theory, with a closer integration of forecasting technique with the theory on which it is founded. The book is designed to appeal persons studying meteorology or practicing forecasters.

by David J. Raymond - New Mexico Tech , 2009
A graduate course in the physics of atmospheric convection: Governing equations of fluid dynamics; Convection and turbulence; Thermodynamics of moist convection; Simple models of convection; Microphysics of convection; Convection and the environment.
by Wee Ho Lim, Michael L. Roderick - ANU E Press , 2009
The maps and tables in the Atlas document rainfall, evaporation and runoff estimates for the 20th century along with predictions at the end of the 21st century. The predictions are made by the international climate modeling community.

The report summarizes the impacts of climate change on the US, now and in the future. It focuses on climate change impacts in different regions and on various aspects of society and the economy such as energy, water, agriculture, and health.
by Richard C. J. Somerville - University of California Press , 1998
An authoritative, up-to-date handbook on global change. Written by a scientist for nonscientists, this primer humanizes the great environmental issues of our time - the hole in the ozone layer, the greenhouse effect, acid rain, and air pollution.
by J.C. Jones - BookBoon , 2008
Atmospheric pollution is is becoming an increasingly important theme as the discussion on global warming becomes ever more relevant. The book introduces the different concepts of atmospheric pollution and the underlying principles.
