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 application of dynamical methods, the development of theories of atmospheric circulation, the establishment of regular meteorological observatories, have all helped in throwing light upon some of the obscurer problems of the science.
This Wikibook deals with climate change, in particular the recent global warming. The book is really two parts: first, a primer on the science of climate change, and second, a study of societal implications of climate change.

In this interdisciplinary review, we are guided by our interest in exploring the nexus between climate and concepts such as energy, entropy, symmetry, response, multiscale interactions, and its potential relevance in terms of numerical modeling.
