Statistical analysis in climate research by H. v Storch( )
48 editions published between 1998 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 1,577 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Climatology is, to a large degree, the study of the statistics of our climate. The powerful tools of mathematical statistics therefore find wide application in climatological research. The purpose of this book is to help the climatologist understand the basic precepts of the statistician's art and to provide some of the background needed to apply statistical methodology correctly and usefully. The book is self contained: introductory material, standard advanced techniques, and the specialised techniques used specifically by climatologists are all contained within this one source. There are a wealth of real-world examples drawn from the climate literature to demonstrate the need, power and pitfalls of statistical analysis in climate research. Suitable for graduate courses on statistics for climatic, atmospheric and oceanic science, this book will also be valuable as a reference source for researchers in climatology, meteorology, atmospheric science, and oceanography
Climate and society climate as resource, climate as risk by Nico Stehr( )
12 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 1,281 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Climate and Society presents from a transdisciplinary view, climate and its changes, impact and perception. The history of climate and its different approaches over time - which are anthropocentric and more system-oriented, academic and application-driven - are reviewed, as are the possibilities of managing climate, in particular by steering the greenhouse gas emissions. Most importantly, the concepts of climate as a resource for societies are discussed and the emergence of climate non-constancy and its impact, studied. In essence, this book provides an absorbing account of the cultural history of climate and relates it to contemporary scientific knowledge about climate, climate change and its impact."--Back cover
Computer modelling in atmospheric and oceanic sciences building knowledge by Peter Müller( )
11 editions published between 2004 and 2010 in English and held by 494 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In the course of the tremendous political and economic upheaval starting in 1989/1990 many industrial cities and regions in Central and Eastern Europe have been confronted with profound socio-economic problems. This book presents eleven detailed national reports which describe the situation in such cities and regions as well as the strategies which have been employed to cope with structural change. The country reports are complemented by short case studies of selected cities and regions. An introduction gives background to such topics as structural change and the ramifications of EU enlargement. Finally some conclusions are drawn and recommendations offered for future policy."--Jacket

Analysis of climate variability : applications of statistical techniques : proceedings of an Autumn School organized by the Commission of the European Community on Elba from October 30 to November 6, 1993 ( Book )
16 editions published between 1995 and 1999 in English and German and held by 385 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Various problems in climate research, which require the use of advanced statistical techniques, are considered in this book. The examples emphasize the notion that the knowledge of statistical techniques alone is not sufficient. Instead, good physical understanding of the specific problems in climate research, such as the enormous size of the phase space, the correlation of processes on all time and space scales and the availability of essentially one observational record, are needed to guide the researcher in choosing the right approach to obtain meaningful answers. Aspects covered are the examination of the observational record based on instrumental and proxy data, the concept of stochastic climate models and the confirmation of dynamic climate models, the evaluation of forecasts and pattern-related analytical techniques such as empirical orthogonal functions, teleconnections, singular spectrum analysis and principal oscillation patterns. The book is a collection of the contributions given during an "autumn school" on "Statistical Analysis in Climate Research" supported by the European Community
Seventy years of exploration in oceanography a prolonged weekend discussion with Walter Munk by H. v Storch( )
8 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 354 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Documents a fireside discussion with the world renowned oceanographer, Walter Munk. This book highlights the pioneering contributions Walter has made to wave prediction, ocean circulation, tides and their role in the Earth's dynamics, internal waves, and ocean acoustic thermometry
Anthropogenic climate change by H. v Storch( Book )
11 editions published in 1999 in 3 languages and held by 239 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The present volume contains lectures given at the First GKSS School of Environmental Research in April 1997. The School dealt with the prototypical problem of Anthropogenic Climate Change and addressed a wide spectrum of questions, ranging from purely dynamic aspects to the socioscientific construction of the "climate problem". Three lectures deal with the functioning and modeling of the climate system and the dynamics behind natural and anthropogenic climate change. An up-to-date discussion of the "detection" problem is given. For comparison, the case of anthropogenic rain-making is addressed which attracted considerable interest in the 1960s. Three lectures deal with the social dimension of Anthropogenic Climate Change, namely with the interaction of climate and economy and the design of optimal policies; a comparison of the present public views with the concept of climatic determinism; and the views held within the scientific community about the role of science
Models in environmental research by H. v Storch( Book )
11 editions published between 2001 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 220 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In most natural sciences, modeling is a widespread method of gaining new knowledge about natural and technical systems. This book analyses the concepts of 'model' and 'modeling' in different fields of research. The different methods of modeling as well as the potentials and limits of this concept are reflected and discussed. The book presents a variety of modeling techniques, from mathematical models in climatology, meteorology or oceanography to methods used in morphology, decision-making in ecology and physical modeling in oceanography. In this broad overview regarding modeling, the book is unique
Eduard Brückner : the sources and consequences of climate change and climate variability in historical times by Eduard Brückner( Book )
5 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This anthology of studies by the eminent geographer and climate scientist Eduard Brückner (1862-1927) on anthropogenic climate change and the social, political and economic impact of climate variations on societies in historical times, assembles his pioneering work in English for the first time. The issues discussed by Brückner are now considered to be among the most pressing facing modern society and climate research. At the turn of the twentieth century, Brückner was one of the central protagonists in a vigorous debate in science and society about global climate variability and its political and economic significance. The studies published here were chosen to demonstrate Brückner 's wide-ranging scientific interest in climate variability, his extensive empirical research and theoretical analysis of climate change, his assessment of contemporary analyses and thinking about anthropogenic climate change (such as the widespread concern about desiccation), and how he approached the questions of the transfer of scientific knowledge into society. In many ways Brückner was a thoroughly modern scientist, convinced, for example, that the issue of climate change and its impact was of considerable scientific merit and that future climate changes are of great significance for the well-being of humankind as well as for the global balance of political and economic relations. Brückner 's formidable ideas should have a significant impact on our present views of climate, climate variability and climate impact

Die Klimafalle : die gefährliche Nähe von Politik und Klimaforschung by H. v Storch( )
3 editions published in 2013 in German and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Die Klimagipfel scheitern und bleiben folgenlos, obwohl die Emissionen immer weiter steigen. Der Klimaforscher Hans von Storch und der Ethnologe Werner Krauß erklären, wie wir in der Klimafalle gelandet sind - und wie wir ihr entkommen können. Die inflationäre Ankündigung der Klimakatastrophe hat zu einem Verlust der Glaubwürdigkeit von Wissenschaft geführt. Dabei ist der Klimawandel keine wissenschaftliche Frage, sondern eine gesellschaftliche! Er muss in regionaler Kultur, Alltag und Politik verankert werden. Die Weltgesellschaft braucht keine politisierte Wissenschaft, die das 2-Grad-Ziel ausruft, sondern eine, die die Bedingungen für einen pragmatischen Umgang mit dem Klimawandel auslotet
Scientific consensus on global warming : results of an international suvey of climate scientists by Joseph L Bast( Book )
3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This booklet summarizes the results of international surveys of climate scientists conducted in 1996 and 2003 by two German environmental scientists, Dennis Bray and Hans von Storch."--Introd
The climate in historical times : towards a synthesis of Holocene proxy data and climate models by Hubertus Fischer( )
1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The project "Climate in Historical Times" (KIHZ) represents an integrative approach by geoscientists and climate modellers to analyse the dynamics of natural climate variability during the Holocene. This volume summarises the outcome of a KIHZ summer school. The meeting dealt with a variety of topics related to natural climate variability, ranging from reconstructions of past climate using so-called "proxy data" derived from ice cores, lake sediments, tree rings and corals. These data are used to validate and assimilate climate models. The first part of this volume provides an overview of the climate system and its dynamics. It uses climate models of differing complexity and the resources of different archives in order to reconstruct past climate. The second part describes the latest achievements of the KIHZ members in their endeavours to reconstruct past climate by using proxy data, statistical analyses and climate models
