The coldest March : Scott's fatal Antarctic expedition by Susan Solomon ( Book )
9 editions published between 2001 and 2003 in English and held by 1,186 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book tells the story of Captain Robert Falcon Scott and his British team who in November 1911 began a trek across the snows of Antarctica, striving to be the first to reach the South Pole. After marching and skiing more than nine hundred miles, the men reached the Pole in January 1912, only to suffer the terrible realization that a group of five Norwegians had been there about a month earlier. On their return journey, Scott and his four companions perished, and their legacy - as courageous heroes or tragic incompetents - has been debated ever since." "Susan Solomon brings a scientific perspective to understanding the men of the expedition, their staggering struggle, and the reasons for their deaths. Drawing on extensive meteorological data and on her own personal knowledge of the Antarctic, she depicts in detail the sights, sounds, legends, and ferocious weather of this singular place. And she reaches the startling conclusion that Scott's polar party was struck down by exceptionally frigid weather - a rare misfortune that thwarted the men's meticulous predictions of what to expect. Solomon describes the many adventures and challenges faced by Scott and his men on their journey, and she also discusses each one's life, contributions, and death. Her poignant and beautifully written book restores them to the place of honor they deserve."--Jacket

Australian climate change research perspectives on successes, challenges and future directions by Susan Solomon ( )
2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
It is evident that demands for knowledge on climate change have reached an all-time high, due to massive interest by governments, the public, and the private sector. Decision-making by governments has begun to address key challenges of impacts and adaptation to climate change, which has created an imperative for a much deeper foundation in new types of biophysical science information. For example, improved understanding of the likelihood of changes not just in average climate but also in its extremes is urgently needed, including present and future changes in drought intensity and duration, as well as a deeper assessment of linkages to streamflow and soil moisture. To meet this new challenge, nothing less than a fully national effort is required. The following elements are essential for a strengthened and more effective national approach, building on the established role and mode of working of the Australian Climate Change Science Programme
