The climate is an excellent example of a forced, dissipative system dominated by nonlinear processes and featuring non-trivial dynamics of a vast range of spatial and temporal scales. 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.

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.
This book describes severe weather terminology used by the National Weather Service in the United States. The NWS defines meanings for nearly all of its weather terms. The book describes NWS terminology and related weather scales used by the agency.
