Editorial Reviews Review of previous edition: "Gordon Bonan's excellent Ecological Climatology … provides an up-to-date status report on ecosystem-climate interactions … across a broad range of disciplines. Revised edition takes a close look at global fluxes involving the atmosphere, land, lakes, rivers, biota, and oceans, and the human effects on these fluxes Detailed discussion of basic concepts including meteorology, surficial geology weathering, erosion, and sedimentationbiogeochemistry, limnology, and oceanography An expanded up-to-date chapter on atmospheric chemistry and changing climate, including CO2, other greenhouse gases, and ozone Presentation of major advances in the study of chemical weathering Discussion of current environmental topics Global coverage of environmental problems involving water Some images inside the book are unavailable due to digital copyright restrictions. Rising temperatures are only one aspect of modern climate change though, with includes observed changes in precipitationstorm tracks and cloudiness. Applied climatology addresses the climate factors involved in a broad range of problems relating to the planning, design, operations, and other decision-making activities of climate-sensitive sectors of modern society.
The third section is on climate change which involves both past paleoclimate and future climate: The first two chapters cover certain facets of paleoclimate while the third is centered towards the signals observed or otherwise of climate change. Seasonal-to-interannual variability; Ecosystems and climate; Part I. Climate is sometimes modeled as a stochastic process but this is generally accepted as an approximation to processes that are otherwise too complicated to analyze. It is also suitable for students with a background of at least one year of college physics and calculus as well as researchers in academia, government military, NOAA, NWSand policymakers.
Climatology considers the past and can help predict future climate change. Water balance; The climate system receives nearly all of its energy from the sun. Several are focused at the introductory level for undergraduates e. Climate intervention and geoengineering;

This information is now available in one convenient, accessible source, the Encyclopedia of World Climatology. Climatic change[ edit ] Climate change occurs when changes in Earth's climate system result in new weather patterns that remain in place for an extended period of time.
These equations are coupled and nonlinear, so that approximate solutions are obtained by using numerical methods to create global climate models.
This length of time can be as short as a few decades to as long as millions of years. Rising temperatures are only one aspect Physical climatology.
book modern climate change though, with includes observed changes in precipitationstorm tracks and cloudiness. QC Other significant subdisciplines of climatology include bioclimatology and paleoclimatology.
The physical principles and computer models necessary for understanding past climate and predicting future climate are also discussed. Aerosols, chemistry, and climate; The first is the study of discrete and characteristic weather phenomena of a particular continental or subcontinental region.
About the Author: Professor D. For instance, midlatitudes will have a pronounced seasonal cycle in temperature whereas tropical regions show little variation in temperature over the year.
Benjamin Franklin — first mapped the course of the Gulf Stream for use in sending mail from the United States to Europe. Data holdings include records of the concentrations of carbon dioxide and other radiatively active gases in the atmosphere; the role of the terrestrial biosphere and the oceans in the biogeochemical cycles of greenhouse gases; emissions of carbon dioxide to the atmosphere; long-term climate trends; the effects of elevated carbon dioxide on vegetation; and the vulnerability of coastal areas to rising sea level.
Other authors have divided the field of climatology into many different topical subfields; for example, paleoclimatology, paleotempestology, historical climatology, boundary-layer climatology, physical climatology, hydroclimatology, dynamic climatology, regional climatology, bioclimatology, applied climatology, and synoptic climatology.
This product may take a few minutes to download. Includes a narrative of local conditions by state. The first section contains four chapters that pertain to synoptic climatology, i.

The second section on regional climatology has four chapters that describe the climate features within physiographically defined areas.The new edition of Dennis Hartmann's classic book "Global Physical Climatology" is even better than the original.
It goes into some depth on the radiative budget of the earth, surface processes, atmospheric physics, and climate dynamics, yet remains readable for a 5/5. Global Physical Climatology, Second Edition, provides an introduction to the science of climate and climate change that spans the atmosphere, ocean, and land surface, and the interactions among them.
It begins with a basic introduction to the climate system, and then introduces the physics of the climate system, including the principles and processes that determine the structure and climate. Global Physical Climatology is an introductory text devoted to the fundamental physical principles and problems of climate sensitivity and change.
Addressing some of the most critical issues in climatology, this text features incisive coverage of topics that are central to understanding orbital parameter theory for past climate changes, and for.
