Mesoscale meteorological modeling by Roger A Pielke ( )
33 editions published between 1984 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,443 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The 3rd edition of Mesoscale Meteorological Modeling is a fully revised resource for researchers and practitioners in the growing field of meteorological modeling at the mesoscale. Pielke has enhanced the new edition by quantifying model capability (uncertainty) by a detailed evaluation of the assumptions of parameterization and error propagation. Mesoscale models are applied in a wide variety of studies, including weather prediction, regional and local climate assessments, and air pollution investigations. Broad expansion of the concepts of parameterization and parameter
The hurricane by Roger A Pielke ( Book )
13 editions published between 1990 and 2013 in English and held by 525 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
First published in 1990, this book describes the nature of the hurricane, one of the world's most dangerous weather hazards. It examines the formation, development, movement, and impact of these tropical cyclones, and assess the ability of science to describe, forecast, and control them
Mesoscale modeling of the atmosphere ( Book )
7 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Human impacts on weather and climate by William R Cotton ( Book )
1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
As world population grows there is increasing evidence that human activities are having a significant impact on weather and climate, from a local to global scale. Human Impacts on Weather and Climate is a non-mathematical presentation of the basic physical concepts of how human activity may affect our weather and climate. This book assesses the current hypotheses and examines whether the impacts are measurable. Included are critical evaluations of the scientific status of weather modification by cloud seeding, human impacts on regional weather and climate, and human impacts on global climate, including the greenhouse gas hypothesis. Also included are discussions of the modern philosophy of science and its application to determining human impacts on weather and climate
A three-dimensional numerical model of the sea breezes over South Florida by Roger A Pielke ( )
2 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Storms by Roger A Pielke ( Book )

Fundamentals of atmospheric physics by Murry L Salby ( )
1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Fundamentals of Atmospheric Physics emphasizes the interrelationships of physical and dynamical meteorology. The text unifies four major subject areas: atmospheric thermodynamics, hydrostatic equilibrium and stability, atmospheric radiation and clouds, and atmospheric dynamics. These fundamental areas serve as cornerstones of modern atmospheric research on environmental issues like global change and ozone depletion. Physical concepts underlying these subject areas are developed from first principles, providing a selfcontained text for students and scholars from diverse backgrounds. The presentation is Lagrangian (singlebody problems) in perspective, with a balance of theory and application. Each chapter includes detailed and extensive problems; selected answers are provided, as are appendices of various constants. The text requires a thorough foundation in calculus. * Presents a comprehensive introduction to atmospheric thermodynamics, hydrostatics, radiation and clouds, and dynamics * Develops concepts from first principles, providing a selfcontained volume for readers from diverse backgrounds * Emphasizes the interaction of physical processes shaping global problems of atmospheric energetics, transport, and chemistry * Provides a balance of theory and applications, with examples drawn from a wide range of phenomena figuring in global atmospheric research * Extensively illustrated with global satellite imagery and analyses and photographs of laboratory simulations * Exercises apply to a wide range of topical problems
Climate vulnerability understanding and addressing threats to essential resources by Roger A Pielke ( Book )
2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Climate change has been the subject of thousands of books and magazines, scientific journals, and newspaper articles daily. It's a subject that can be very political and emotional, often blurring the lines between fact and fiction. The vast majority of research, studies, projections and recommendations tend to focus on the human influence on climate change and global warming as the result of CO2 emissions, often to the exclusion of other threats that include population growth and the stress placed on energy sources due to emerging global affluence. Climate Vulnerability seeks to strip away the politics and emotion that surround climate change and will assess the broad range of threats using the bottom up approach-including CO2 emissions, population growth, emerging affluence, and many others-to our five most critical resources: water, food, ecosystems, energy, and human health. Inclusively determining what these threats are while seeking preventive measures and adaptations is at the heart of this unique reference work. Takes a Bottom-Up approach, addressing climate change and the threat to our key resources at the local level first and globally second, providing a more accurate and inclusive approach.Includes extensive cross-referencing, which is key to readers as new connections between factors can be discovered. Cuts across a number of disciplines and will appeal to Biological Science, Earth & Environmental Science, Ecology, and Social Science, comprehensively addressing climate change and other threats to our key resources from multiple perspectives
Hurricanes their nature and impacts on society by Roger A Pielke ( Book )
