Weather Science: An Elementary Introduction to Meteorology
by F.W. Henkel
Publisher: T. F. Unwin 1911
Number of pages: 368
The application of dynamical methods by Bezold and others, the development of theories of atmospheric circulation, the improvement of instruments and the establishment of regular meteorological observatories, not only in the lowlands but also in mountain regions, these and other things have all helped in throwing light upon some of the obscurer problems of the science. The complexity of the subject, however, seems to give little hope that the ideal of deducing all weather changes from the knowledge of the variations in the amount and direction of the solar radiation, in their effect upon the mixture of air and water vapour of which our atmosphere consists, will be soon realised.

The book presents recent research on tropical cyclones and their impacts. An updated global climatology is presented, including the occurrence of tropical cyclones and the terrestrial factors that may contribute to variability in their occurrence.

The maps and tables in the Atlas document rainfall, evaporation and runoff estimates for the 20th century along with predictions at the end of the 21st century. The predictions are made by the international climate modeling community.
