Hurricanes : causes, effects, and the future by Stephen P Leatherman( Book )

9 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 187 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For many Americans, Katrina's deadly destructiveness offered a first harrowing lesson in the power of hurricanes. For those living along the Atlantic Coast and the Gulf of Mexico, Katrina was one more disastrous encounter with an overwhelming force of nature. As evidence mounts that these tropical cyclones will only grow more frequent and intense, this book offers a much-needed opportunity to understand the workings of hurricanes. Two recognized authorities on climate and weather gives readers a close look at hurricanes past and present, from the historic Galveston storm of 1900 to the devastating Katrina. Along with near-incredible stories of damage wreaked and lives altered, this book provides a clear and concise introduction to the mechanics of the storms. In scientifically accurate but easily comprehensible terms, the authors explain the formidable wind speed, the heavy rains, and the eye of the hurricane, all accompanied by detailed diagrams and spectacular color photographs. Their work makes it possible for readers to make informed decisions about a natural phenomenon that increasingly affects our lives. -- Publisher's description

Overwash processes and foredune ecology, Nauset Spit, Massachusetts by Robert E Zaremba( )

4 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Various techniques were used to provide insight into the dynamics of a northeast barrier beach system. A range of information collected during different time frames was examined to evaluate the role fo overwash and foredune processes in barrier beach dynamics. Overwash processes were described from field data collected during several minor storms and during a major northeaster in February 1978. The response of vegetation to overwash burial and the colonization of washovers by vegetation were studied using data collected between 1977 and 1979. Transects were established along Nauset Spit to determine the development of plant communities and morphological features on barrier environments that have a well-documented history. Aerial photographs and US Coast Survey maps were used to determine the changes in shoreline position and major barrier environments during the past 122 years. Earlier charts, maps, and accounts expanded these data back to the early 1600s, in a qualitative sense. Finally, cores and radiocarbon peat dates were used to define the geologic evolution of the barrier system
