The Arctic can be viewed as an integrated system intimately linked by its atmosphere ocean and land This comprehensive up to date assessment begins with an outline of early Arctic exploration and the growth of modern research Using an integrated systems approach subsequent chapters examine the atmospheric heat budget and circulation the surface energy budget the hydrologic cycle and interactions between the ocean atmosphere and sea ice cover Reviews of recent directions in numerical modeling and the characteristics of past Arctic climates cover recent climate variability as well as projected future trends, This concise introduction to modern climatology covers the key topics for intermediate undergraduate students on one semester courses The treatment of topics is non mathematical wherever possible instead focusing on physical processes to allow students to grasp concepts more easily Full color illustrations support the text and supplementary topics are covered in boxes enabling students to further increase their knowledge and awareness A historical perspective of climatology is woven throughout providing students with an insight into key scientists and technological developments Each chapter concludes with a summary of the main points and a mixture of review and discussion questions encouraging students to check their understanding and think critically A list of key web links to data and other resources and solutions and hints to answers to the student questions password protected for instructors are provided online to complete the teaching package, em Synoptic and Dynamic Climatology em provides the first comprehensive account of the dynamical behaviour and mechanisms of the global climate system and its components together with a modern survey of synoptic scale weather systems in the tropics and extratropics and of the methods and applications of synoptic climate classification It is unrivalled in the scope and detail of its contents The work is thoroughly up to date with extensive bibliographies by chapter It is illustrated with nearly figures and plates br Part provides an introduction to the global climate system and the space time scales of weather and climate processes followed by a chapter on climate data and their analysis br Part describes and explains the characteristics of the general circulation of the global atmosphere and includes the nature and causes of global teleconnection patterns br Part discusses synoptic weather systems in the extratropics and tropics and satellite based climatologies of synoptic features It also describes the applications of synoptic climatology and summarises current climatic research and its directions, This is the first textbook to address all the components of the Earth s cryosphere all forms of snow and ice both terrestrial and marine It provides a concise but comprehensive summary of snow cover glaciers ice sheets lake and river ice permafrost sea ice and icebergs their past history and projected future state It is designed for courses at upper undergraduate and graduate level in environmental science geography geology glaciology hydrology water resource engineering and ocean sciences It also provides a superb up to date summary for researchers of the cryosphere The book includes an extensive bibliography numerous figures and color plates thematic boxes on selected topics and a glossary The book builds on courses taught by the authors for many decades at the University of Colorado and the University of Alberta Whilst there are many existing texts on individual components of the cryosphere no other textbook covers the whole cryosphere
