States of fear : science or politics?( Visual )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Is environmental debate today, including global warming, bio-technology, and other issues, based on science or politics? Are popular accounts of such issues rooted in science or phantom risks? Are government policies focusing on the trivial while ignoring the real, and in the process wasting limited resources, crippling human innovation to address true dangers, and inviting tyranny?"--Program description
Tropical cyclone genesis by William M Gray( Book )

4 editions published in 1975 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Weather modification by carbon dust absorption of solar energy by William M Gray( Book )

5 editions published between 1974 and 1976 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The five papers of this report have been written in attempt to open up a new dialogue among meteorologists and other scientists on the possibility of meso-scale weather modification through carbon dust interception of solar energy
On the balance of forces and radial accelerations in hurricanes by William M Gray( Book )

5 editions published between 1961 and 1962 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The balance of forces in hurricanes was examined along the radial direction in stationary and moving coordinates; further, the radius of trajectory curvature has been computed in selected portions of ten flight missions. The Coriolis acceleration proved negligible compared to the centrifugal acceleration as expected. But gradient or cyclostrophic balance in general is not achieved by a wide margin, both along the radial axis and in natural coordinates. The pressure gradient far exceeds that required to balance the centrifugal acceleration to the left, and falls somewhat short of the requirement to the right of the direction of motion. In moving coordinates this asymmetry is reduced but by no means eliminated. Hence the maximum wind may be interpreted as produced by 'overshooting' toward low pressure far beyond the point of equilibrium. A similar situation appears to exist with respect to many extratopical wind maxima, especially highspeed centers along jet streams
Diurnal variation of oceanic deep cumulus convection by Robert W Jacobson( Book )

5 editions published between 1976 and 1977 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tropical cyclone and related meteorological data sets available at CSU and their utilization( Book )

3 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Global view of the origin of tropical disturbances and storms by William M Gray( Book )

5 editions published between 1967 and 1968 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The basic report is a progressive step in an updating of tropical storm climatology. It discusses areas which subsequently became tropical geographic areas: the northwest Pacific Ocean, the Indian Ocean and the West Indies. Mean motion fields were computed with respect to a coordinate system with its origin at the moving potential storm center
Analysis of satellite-observed tropical cloud clusters by Eberhard Ruprecht( Book )

3 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Feasibility of beneficial hurricane modification by carbon dust seeding by William M Gray( Book )

4 editions published in 1973 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Diagnostic study of the planetary boundary layer over the oceans by William M Gray( Book )

4 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A statistical survey of the wind veering in the lowest two kilometers is made for the oceans of the Northern Hemisphere. The data sample consists of over 100,000 pibal and rawin soundings. This includes observations made from ships in the 0-70 degrees latitude belt and observations at atolls and small islands in the 5-35 degrees latitude belt. The wind veering is stratified by latitude, season, wind direction and wind speed
Atlantic seasonal hurricane frequency by William M Gray( Book )

2 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Recent advances in tropical cyclone research from rawinsonde composite analysis by William M Gray( Book )

3 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On the scales of motion and internal stress characteristics of the hurricane by William M Gray( Book )

2 editions published between 1964 and 1965 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tropical cyclone movement and surrounding flow nelationships by Johnny C. L Chan( Book )

3 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper presents results of a comprehensive study of relationship between the movement of tropical cyclones and the large-scale circulation which surrounds them
On the latent heat release in a cyclone crossing the Rocky Mountains by Herbert Riehl( Book )

2 editions published in 1962 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The mutual variation of wind, shear and baroclinicity in the cumulus convective atmosphere of the hurricane by William M Gray( Book )

2 editions published in 1966 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An extensive discussion is presented on the characteristics of the vertical motion within the hurricane

Environmental circulations associated with tropical cyclones experiencing fast, slow and looping motion by Jianmin Xu( Book )

3 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study investigates the characteristic large scale flow patterns associated with fast, slow and looping tropical cyclone motion in the western Atlantic and the western North Pacific
