Meteorology for Coastal Scientists

release date: Jul 25, 2021
Meteorology for Coastal Scientists
This is a textbook for non-atmospheric specialists who work in the coastal zone. Its purpose will be to help coastal environmental, engineering, and planning professionals to understand coastal atmospheric processes. This in turn will allow more effective communication with climate modelers, atmospheric environmental consultants, and members of the media. The coastal environment is among the most intensively used and chronically abused components of the Earth-ocean-atmosphere system. It is also home to an ever-increasing proportion of humanity with their increasing development, trade, transportation, and industrial activities, amid increasing impacts of natural hazards. The atmosphere is an integral part of the system, with all of the above human activities affecting and being affected by atmospheric processes and hazards. Yet few of the specialists studying the coastal environment have expertise on atmospheric processes, this therefore presents a highly relevant textbook on coastal atmospheric processes.

Louisiana Weather and Climate

Louisiana Weather and Climate
Louisiana Weather and Climate details the how and the who of annual and seasonal weather episodes seen in the state of Louisiana, including tropical depressions, tropical storms, hurricanes, severe thunderstorms, lightning, heavy rainfall, flooding, tornadoes, and economically devastating freezes. The frequency and variety of severe and extreme weather is higher than in most other regions of the country, making it exciting reading not only for students, but also for the general reader interested in weather and climate. This concise volume is written at a level accessible to all readers, including beginning students in meteorology and climatology courses. It explains the concepts without employing high levels of mathematical calculations or scientific discourse. It also addresses the effects that climate change is likely to have on Louisiana with examples related to rising sea levels, increased frequency and severity of storms, and much more. The text goes on to outline how these weather phenomena will affect the flora, fauna, and human population of the region.
