Report of the Science Steering Group for a Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM)( Book )

6 editions published between 1988 and 1989 in English and held by 305 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM), a satellite program now being studied jointly by the United States and Japan, would carry out the systematic study of tropical rainfall required for major strides in weather and climate research ... This report presents the scientific justification for TRMM and outlines the implementation process for the scientific community."--Preface
Cloud structure and distributions over the tropical Pacific Ocean by Joanne Simpson( Book )

10 editions published in 1964 in English and held by 292 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mother Nature guided relaxation : nature's lullaby( )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 218 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hurricane! : coping with disaster : progress and challenges since Galveston, 1900 by William M Gray( Book )

2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Chronicles progress made during the 20th century in the ability of meteorologists to monitor and predict hurricanes. The 15 chapters trace efforts to improve the accuracy of hurricane tracking and prediction of landfall, explore the societal challenges of coping with hurricanes, and assess the possibilities and limits of technology. Topics include surveillance by specially instrumented aircraft, options for mitigating damage, and the role of weather satellites. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR

On the dynamics and energy transformations in steady-state hurricanes by Joanne Simpson( Book )

2 editions published in 1959 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A dynamic model of the inflow layer in a steady mature hurricane is evolved, relating wind speed, pressure gradient, surface shearing stress, mass flow, and convergence. The low-level air trajectories are assumed to be logarithmic spirals. With this hypothesis, properties such as maximum wind and central pressure are determined through choice of a parameter depending on the inflow angle: a moderate hurricane arises with inflow angles of about 20 degrees, while 25 degrees gives an intense or extreme storm. Most of this study treats the moderate storm. In order to maintain its core pressure gradients, an oceanic source of sensible and latent heat is required. As a result, latent heat release in the inner hurricane area occurs at higher heat content (warmer moist adiabats) than mean tropical subcloud air. The heat transfer from the ocean and the release of latent in the core determine the pressure gradient along the trajectory. This selection principle is evolved using recent work on 'relative stability' of finite amplitude thermal circulations. Finally, rainfall, efficiency of work done by the storm, and kinetic energy budgets are examined in an attempt to understand the difference between the hurricane - a rare phenomenon - and the common sub-hurricane tropical storm.

Vertical distribution of temperature and humidity over the Caribbean Sea( Book )

1 edition published in 1949 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Introduction: The observations presented and discussed in this paper were obtained as part of a research project conducted under contract NObs-208 3 with the Bureau of Ships of the U. S. Navy by the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. The observations and their original reduction were carried out under the direction of Jeffries Wyman. The airplane soundings were undertaken by Kenneth McCasland and Alfred Woodcock. The sea surface temperature was measured on the surface ships by David F. Barnes and Roger Patterson. The necessary airplane (PBY-5A) and surface boats (PC's) were made available by the U. S. Navy. All observations were made during the spring of 1946 at about 19.5°N latitude, 66°W longitude, north of San Juan, Puerto Rico, and at about 10°N latitude, 79.5°W longitude, north of Coco Solo, Panama. An extensive preliminary report on the results of the expedition with a limited circulation was prepared by Wyman and his collaborators during the summer of 1946. The present paper deals with certain phases of the work in a more detailed fashion. Special attention is given to the temperature and humidity distributions in the vertical and to their interpretation in the light of meteorological principles. A discussion of atmospheric turbulence based on airplane measurements has already been published elsewhere (Langwell, 1948), and an application of the airplane soundings to the theory of cumulus clouds has been studied by Stommel (1947). The second and third chapters of this publication deal with the description of observational techniques used by the expedition, with the methods of reduction and present the data on which the later discussion is based. It has been thought desirable to publish these data in extension because they may be of interest to other meteorologists in view of the sparsity of upper-air observations in this region. The actual preparation of Chapters II and III is largely the work of Bunker and Stommel. In order to show how the observations made off Puerto Rico fit into the general pattern of climatic and weather conditions in the Caribbean area Chapter IV presents a survey of the climate of this region and of the weather conditions during the time when the observations were taken. This Chapter was contributed by Joanne Malkus. It is pertinent to include in this general introduction the conclusion drawn in Chapter IV namely that the weather situations encountered represented, in general, a relatively undisturbed trade-wind regime of early spring. The homogeneous layer of nearly dry-adiabatic lapse-rate of temperature and almost constant mixing ratio is one of the most characteristic phenomena in the lowest atmosphere of this region. It is also of utmost importance for the energy budget of the hydrosphere and the atmosphere. Therefore, a special discussion of this layer by Bunker is given in Chapter V. Because of the nearly dry-adiabatic lapse-rate in the homogeneous layer most of the heat transfer between water and air in the trade-wind zone must be in the form of latent heat of vaporization, a conclusion whose thermodynamic implications were discussed thoroughly by Ficker (1936). For this reason the distribution of water vapor deserves special attention, and Chapter VI deals with this variable as a problem in turbulent mass exchange. The analysis presented in this chapter is due to Haurwitz and Stommel
