Details

The variability in weather and climate can have a tremendous impact, making the science of forecasting incredibly important. Weather and climate are related, but individually they do not mean quite the same thing. The main difference involves time—weather refers to the present state or to conditions that may evolve in the coming days or weeks, whereas climate refers to long-term behavior.

Atmospheric phenomena affect everyone—severe storms pop up from time to time, and the interactions governing the climate form a network that has worldwide influence. These topics are complicated and merit a great deal of research, and each chapter of this book explores one of these frontiers. Weather and Climate explores the scientists who delve into frontiers of weather and climate science—and quite often run into variable and puzzling phenomena. Featuring information published in reports or presented at conferences, this guide will make a great addition to classroom libraries.

Chapters include:

  • Paleoclimatology—Evolution of Earth's Climate
  • Polar Climate—A Sensitive Indicator of Change
  • Solar Variation and Earth's Climate
  • Tornado Formation
  • Hurricane Forecasting
  • Intentional Weather Modification.
