Rain Monitoring Books

  • Flood Risk and Social Justice

    Flood Risk and Social Justice is a response to the rising significance of floods and flood-related disasters worldwide, as an initiative to promote a socially just approach to the problems of flood risk. It integrates the human-social and the technological components to provide a holistic view. This book treats flooding as a multi-dimensional ...

  • Geoenvironmental Mapping: Methods,Theory and Practice

    The purpose of this text is to illustrate the wide variety of geoscience mapping that is presently undertaken around the world. To meet this goal, contributions from specialists in several countries were solicited to cover a number of subdisciplinary and thematic topics collectively called Geoenvironmental Mapping. Included in this compilation are ...

  • Impact of Acid Rain and Deposition on Aquatic Biological Systems

    This volume will help you to get the hard data needed to assess damage to fish and invertebrates. A source for understanding lake/stream acidification processes and aquatic biological effects, such as stream and lake productivity, diversity, and measurement ...

  • Sampling and Analysis of Rain

    9 papers describe processes leading to acidic precipitation; techniques used to collect and analyze rain; and quality assurance programs currently used by major acid precipitation measurement ...

  • Lightning: Principles, Instruments and Applications

    Lightning represents a natural phenomenon of substantial interest. Due to its complex nature, research continues in many countries and reveals amazing results. Lightning is actively observed because of its relevance to Earth climate and air composition in addition to the classical aspects of related human fatalities and damage to forests, ...

  • Precipitation: Advances in Measurement, Estimation and Prediction

    The book is based on selected contributions presented at the (General) Session on the 'Observation, Prediction and Verification of Precipitation' of the 2006 EGU General Assembly held in Vienna, Austria. It focuses on current advances in the field of precipitation measurement (i.e. instrumentation), estimation (i.e. remote sensing) and prediction ...

  • 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 ...

  • Climate Change and Food Security

    Roughly a billion people around the world continue to live in state of chronic hunger and food insecurity. Unfortunately, efforts to improve their livelihoods must now unfold in the context of a rapidly changing climate, in which warming temperatures and changing rainfall regimes could threaten the basic productivity of the agricultural systems on ...

  • Observed Global Climate

    The volume 'Observed Global Climate' comprises a set of climate budget quantities, relevant for atmosphere and ocean (the 'climate fluids') as well as for land and ice (the 'climate solids'). Examples for budget quantities are temperature, salinity, wind, rain, radiation. They are displayed in standardised form for all climate subsystems. The data ...

  • Climate Change and Food Security

    Roughly a billion people around the world continue to live in state of chronic hunger and food insecurity. Unfortunately, efforts to improve their livelihoods must now unfold in the context of a rapidly changing climate, in which warming temperatures and changing rainfall regimes could threaten the basic productivity of the agricultural systems on ...

  • Advances in Watershed Hydrology

    The International Memorial Conference was held in Assisi, Italy, October 2013, and organized by the Research Institute for Geo-Hydrological Protection to celebrate the life and work of Dr. Florisa Melone. The Conference brought together some of the most renown and respected scholars from different parts of the world. More than one hundred ...

  • Protocols in Lichenology

    As an intricate association between a fungus and one or more green algae or cyanobacteria, lichens are one of the most successful examples of symbiosis. These fascinating organisms survive extreme desiccation and temperatures. They are adapted to a great variety of habitats, from deserts to intertidal zones, from tropical rain forests to the peaks ...

  • 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 ...

  • Satellite Rainfall Applications for Surface Hydrology

    While there are a growing number of high-resolution space-based systems for measuring precipitation, instances of the use of these products for surface hydrology are rare. This book, which covers both scientific and practical matters, aims to change that. With contributions from a panel of researchers from a wide range of fields, the chapters ...
