Lectures On Air Pollution And Environmental Impact Analyses by Duane Haugen


Original Title: Lectures On Air Pollution And Environmental Impact Analyses

This publication of the AMS contains all the lectures that were presented at the AMS Workshop on Meteorology and Environmental Assessment held in Boston, MA on September 29-October 3, 1975. Topics include: The dispersion of materials in the atmospheric boundary layer, atmospheric dispersion models for environmental pollution applications, plume rise predictions, turbulent diffusion and pollutant transport in shoreline environments, urban diffusion problems, atmospheric transformations of pollutants, observational systems and techniques in air pollution meteorology, and federal government requirements for environmental impact assessment.

Flash Floods by Kevin Sene


Original Title: Flash Floods

Flash floods typically develop in a period a few hours or less and can arise from heavy rainfall and other causes, such as dam or flood defence breaches, and ice jam breaks. The rapid development, often associated with a high debris content, can present a considerable risk to people and property. This book describes recent developments in techniques for monitoring and forecasting the development of flash floods, and providing flood warnings. Topics which are discussed include rainfall and river monitoring, nowcasting, Numerical Weather Prediction, rainfall-runoff modelling, and approaches to the dissemination of flood warnings and provision of an emergency response. The book is potentially useful on civil engineering, water resources, meteorology and hydrology courses (and for post graduate studies) but is primarily intended as a review of the topic for a wider audience.

Kinematic Wave Modeling In Water Resources Environmental Hydrology by Vijay P. Singh


Original Title: Kinematic Wave Modeling In Water Resources Environmental Hydrology

Kinematic wave (KW) modeling methods are gaining wide acceptance as fast and accurate methods for handling a wide range of water modeling problems. This book provides a through reference to the application of KW methods to such problems as the spatial representation of watersheds, overland flow routing, and channel flow routing.

Medium Range Weather Prediction by Austin Woods


Original Title: Medium Range Weather Prediction

This book provides an overview of the early years of the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts, and reviews the work of the institute over the past 30 years, describing along the way the European approach to medium-range weather forecasting. Its combination of historical view and scientific insight is unique.

Observing Weather And Climate From The Ground Up by National Research Council


Original Title: Observing Weather And Climate From The Ground Up

Detailed weather observations on local and regional levels are essential to a range of needs from forecasting tornadoes to making decisions that affect energy security, public health and safety, transportation, agriculture and all of our economic interests. As technological capabilities have become increasingly affordable, businesses, state and local governments, and individual weather enthusiasts have set up observing systems throughout the United States. However, because there is no national network tying many of these systems together, data collection methods are inconsistent and public accessibility is limited. This book identifies short-term and long-term goals for federal government sponsors and other public and private partners in establishing a coordinated nationwide "network of networks" of weather and climate observations.

Mesoscale Meteorology And Forecasting by Peter Ray


Original Title: Mesoscale Meteorology And Forecasting

This book is a collection of selected lectures presented at the ‘Intensive Course on Mesoscale Meteorology and Forecasting’ in Boulder, USA, in 1984. It includes mesoscale classifications, observing techniques and systems, internally generated circulations, mesoscale convective systems, externally forced circulations, modeling and short-range forecasting techniques. This is a highly illustrated book and comprehensive work, including extensive bibliographic references. It is aimed at graduates in meteorology and for professionals working in the field.

Climate Prediction And Agriculture by Mannava V.K. Sivakumar


Original Title: Climate Prediction And Agriculture

Based on an International Workshop held in Geneva in 2005, this book reviews the advances made so far in seasonal climate predictions and their applications for management and decision-making in agriculture. It also identifies the challenges to be addressed in the next 5 to 10 years to further enhance operational applications of climate predictions in agriculture, especially in developing countries.

Coastal Meteorology by Shih-Ang Hsu


Original Title: Coastal Meteorology

Coastal meteorology is an integral part of the total system approach to understanding coastal environments. This book provides information for students who are not necessarily majoring in meteorology or atmospheric sciences but who nonetheless have need of such knowledge. Scientists, engineers, and coastal planners will also find this book a useful resource for familiarizing themselves with meteorological information.
