The forgiving air understanding environmental change by Richard Somerville ( )
26 editions published between 1996 and 2008 in English and held by 2,103 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Forgiving Air is an authoritative, up-to-date handbook on global change. Written by a scientist for nonscientists, this primer humanizes the great environmental issues of our time - the hole in the ozone layer, the greenhouse effect, acid rain, and air pollution - and explains everything in accessible prose. A new preface takes into account developments in environmental policy that have occurred since publication. Highlighting the interrelatedness of human activity and global change, Richard Somerville stresses the importance of an educated public in a world where the role of science is increasingly critical
Large-scale computations in fluid mechanics ( Book )
7 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 279 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The development of atmospheric general circulation models : complexity, synthesis, and computation ( Book )
4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The aim of this volume is to describe the development of atmospheric general circulation models. We are motivated to do so by the central and essential role of these models in understanding, simulating, and predicting the atmosphere on a wide range of time scales. While atmospheric general circulation models are an important basis for many societal decisions, from responses to changing weather to deliberations on responding to anthropogenic climate change, the scientific basis for these models, and how they have come about and continue to develop, are not widely known. Our objective in editing this volume is to provide a perspective on these matters"--

Problems in weather forecasting by Richard Somerville ( Recording )
2 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In a report on weather forecasting, Dr. Somerville discusses the history, advances, and problems of predicting climate changes. In a report on deep-water organisms, Dr. Hessler describes the discovery and types of strange creatures that scientists found on the floor of the Pacific Ocean in the late 1970s

Large-Scale Computations in Fluid Mechanics. Lectures in Applied Mathematics Held at San Diego, California on 27 June - 8 July 1983. Volume 22. Part 1 ( Book )
1 edition published in 1985 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The purpose of this seminar was to bring scientists interested in computational fluid mechanics together with numerical analysts and mathematicians working in large-scale computations. The numerical modeling included geophysical problems of the atmosphere, ocean, and interior of the earth, and planetary, solar, and stellar atmospheres. Applications ranged from idealized turbulence in laboratory convection models to operational weather prediction. Engineering applications included aerodynamics, combustion, and flow in porous media. Recent advances in numerical analysis which have applications to these problems were stressed. These include shock capturing algorithms, spectral methods, boundary treatments, vortex methods, and parallel computing. Fifty lectures were given during the two-week seminar; this book containing the proceedings is the result. The subject matter of the lectures was equally divided between mathematics and applications. In addition to specialized research lectures, several speakers gave talks surveying important areas of numerical analysis and computational fluid dynamics
