Global warming : the complete briefing by J. T Houghton( Book )

100 editions published between 1994 and 2015 in 6 languages and held by 3,325 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author "explores the scientific basis of global warming and the likely impacts of climate change on human society before addressing the action that could be taken by governments, by industry and by individuals to mitigate the effects."--Cover
The physics of atmospheres by J. T Houghton( Book )

56 editions published between 1977 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 1,489 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the third edition of The Physics of Atmospheres, John Houghton has revised his acclaimed textbook to bring it completely up-to-date. The first two editions received excellent reviews, and the new edition will again prove to be invaluable as a text for students of atmosphere science." "The Physics of Atmospheres provides a comprehensive and concise description of the physical processes governing the structure and the circulation of the atmosphere. Simple physical models are constructed by applying the principles of classical thermodynamics, radiative transfer and fluid mechanics, together with analytical and numerical techniques. These models are applied to real planetary atmospheres. In this new edition, chapters have been introduced on topics of strong contemporary interest such as chaos and atmospheric predictability and climate and climate change. The chapters on global observation (especially through remote sensing) and numerical modelling have also been substantially extended, and all parts of the book have been updated." "Like its predecessors, this new edition will be an essential textbook for advanced undergraduate and graduate courses in meteorology, atmospheric physics, remote sensing, climate science, environmental science, and planetary science. Researchers and professionals in atmospheric physics and meteorology will also find it a state-of-the-art review of their subjects."--Jacket

Does God play dice? : the mathematics of chaos by Ian Stewart( Book )

7 editions published between 1988 and 2004 in 4 languages and held by 118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Does God Play Dice? explains the astonishing new theories of systems that obey simple laws but which are neither constant nor predictable. Ian Stewart reveals a strange universe, one in which nothing may be as it seems, where familiar geometrical shapes such as circles and ellipses give way to infinitely complex structures known as 'fractals.' He explains how the fluttering of a butterfly's wing can change the weather and how the gravitational attraction of a creature in a distant galaxy can change the fate of the solar system

In the eye of the storm : the autobiography of Sir John Houghton by J. T Houghton( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in Undetermined and English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For John Houghton, the Chief Executive of the Met Office at the time of the Great Storm in 1987, and founding member of the Nobel Prize winning Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), childhood curiosity about the natural world led to a quest for answers through science. Inspired by new, exciting developments in space and computing technologies he pushed to use both to expand the horizons of meteorology and climate science. Through the IPCC he worked with scientists across the globe to develop our understanding of changing patterns of weather and climate, and to show that the impact of this change on human communities and natural ecosystems is real - and menacing. Sir John's autobiography tells the story of a man who inspired a generation of scientists through his leadership, but also of the conflict this has brought him into with those who shared his Christian faith as well as with climate change deniers, in both America and Europe
