  • Lewis and Clark: Weather and Climate Data from the Expedition Journals

    The Lewis and Clark Expedition of 1803-1806 systematically recorded weather and climate data during their 4,162-mile journey across largely uncharted territory. This data, organized by date and complemented by route descriptions and 50 color photos and historical maps, creates a fascinating look at the weather-related challenges that, at times, ...

  • Atmosphere and Climate

    This book presents carefully edited and peer-reviewed papers from the 2nd International Workshop on Occultations for Probing Atmosphere and Climate (OPAC-2), held in Graz, Austria. It covers results from the radio occultation (RO) experiment onboard CHAMP and from the stellar occultation experiment GOMOS onboard ENVISAT, wave optics algorithms for ...

  • Weather Radar

    Weather radar systems provide data necessary for the understanding of weather systems, improved forecasts (especially critical for severe weather), hydrological applications, flood warnings and also for climate research in which ground verification is needed for global precipitation measurements by satellites. This book offers an accessible ...

  • The Water Encyclopedia, Third Edition: Hydrologic Data and Internet Resources

    “Just do an Internet search.” “It’s on the Internet” These phrases have quickly become a part of the vernacular. The quintessential book of data relating to water, The Water Encyclopedia: Hydrologic Data and Internet Resources, Third Edition arose from the premise that most of the information provided within this publication could be easily found ...

  • The Basics of Testing Plastics: Mechanical Properties, Flame Exposure, and General Guidelines

    This manual is the first in a planned series of volumes addressing the challenges and problems associated with testing plastics. Future manuals will focus on electrical characteristics, optical and chemical properties, rheological behavior, as well as global concerns for international testing harmonization, recycling, and other important ...

  • Environmental Aspects of Zoonotic Diseases

    Environmental Aspects of Zoonotic Diseases provides a definitive description, commentary and research needs of environmental aspects related to zoonotic diseases. There are many interrelated connections between the environment and zoonotic diseases such as: water, soil, air and agriculture. The book presents investigations of these connections, ...

  • Historical Climate Variability and Impacts in North America

    Climatologists with an eye on the past have any number of sources for their work, from personal diaries to weather station reports. Piecing together the trajectory of a weather event can thus be a painstaking process taking years and involving real detective work. Missing pieces of a climate puzzle can come from very far afield, often in unlikely ...

  • The Use of Best Management Practices (BMPs) in Urban Watersheds

    This new book by leading U.S. stormwater experts is a guide to the main techniques for controlling pollutants from diffuse, mainly wet weather, sources. The volume provides a mass of valuable data on the removal efficiencies, costs, and design parameters of all main runoff control structures—from ponds to swales—for large developments to small ...

  • Radar Remote Sensing of Urban Areas

    This book presents a unique collection of state-of-the-art contributions by international remote sensing experts focussing on methodologies to extract information about urban areas from Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) data. SAR is an active remote sensing technique capable to gather data independently from sun light and weather conditions. ...

  • Biogeochemistry of a Forested Ecosystem

    Based on the classic ecosystem studies at Hubbard Brook in New Hampshire, this book presents an in-depth analysis of the biogeochemistry of a terrestrial ecosystem. It synthesizes long-term data on precipitation and streamwater chemistry, hydrology and weathering, and also considers the dynamics of atmospheric gases and water as they flow through ...

  • Climatology

    Meteorology was first considered in Landolt-Börnstein in Volume III (published 1952) of the 6th Edition. At that time, nine contributions with 153 pages seemed enough. In the meantime, meteorology has experienced a worldwide boom owing to the growing interest in environmental problems. New observation and evaluation methods together with high ...

  • Is the U.S. Surface Temperature Record Reliable?

    The stakes in the debate over global warming are high. If human activities are causing a major warming of the earth’s atmosphere, then actions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions costing hundreds of billions of dollars would be ...

  • Data Assimilation for the Earth System

    Data assimilation is the combination of information from observations and models of a particular physical system in order to get the best possible estimate of the state of that system. The technique has wide applications across a range of earth sciences, a major application being the production of operational weather forecasts. Others include ...

  • Landform - Structure, Evolution, Process Control

    The landform is the boundary surface between atmosphere, hydrosphere, biosphere, pedosphere and lithosphere, where life on earth is located. Processes in this surface system depend to a large extent on thespatial characteristics and the configurational status of the system components. Empirical field studies show that most landform components at ...

  • Remote Sensing and GIS Technologies for Monitoring and Prediction of Disasters

    Lessons learned in the last several years have given clear indications that the prediction and efficient monitoring of disasters is one of the critical factors in decision-making process. In this respect space-based technologies have the great potential of supplying information in near real time. Earth observation satellites have already ...
