climatological measuring Books

  • Precipitation

    Precipitation plays a significant role in the climate system, and this is the first book to provide a comprehensive examination of the processes involved in the generation of clouds, rain, snow and hail, how precipitation is measured, how its distribution has changed over time, and how we still need to make improvements to the way precipitation is ...

  • Principles of Snow Hydrology

    Principles of Snow Hydrology describes the factors that control the accumulation, melting and runoff of water from seasonal snowpacks over the surface of the earth. The book addresses not only the basic principles governing snow in the hydrologic cycle, but also the latest applications of remote sensing, and techniques for modeling streamflow from ...

  • Phenology: An Integrative Environmental Science

    Phenology is the study of plant and animal life cycle events, which are triggered by environmental changes, especially temperature. Wide ranges of phenomena are included, from first openings of leaf and flower buds, to insect hatchings and return of birds. Each one gives a ready measure of the environment as viewed by the associated organism. ...
