Recent Hurricane Research: Climate, Dynamics, and Societal Impacts
by Anthony Lupo
Publisher: InTech 2011
Number of pages: 616
This book represents recent research on tropical cyclones and their impacts, and a wide range of topics are covered. An updated global climatology is presented, including the global occurrence of tropical cyclones and the terrestrial factors that may contribute to the variability and long-term trends in their occurrence. Research also examines long term trends in tropical cyclone occurrences and intensity as related to solar activity.

The object of this book is to supply a guide in the elementary observational and inductive studies in meteorology. This Manual is not intended to replace the text-books, but is designed to prepare the way for their more intelligent use.

This document describes processes and radiative transfer models of the Earth system. Our approach is to present a detailed derivation of the tools of radiative transfer needed to predict the radiative quantities which drive climate.
