Although we are seeing more weather and climate extremes, individual extreme events are very diverse and generalization of trends is difficult. For example, mid-latitude and subtropical climate extremes such as heat waves, hurricanes and droughts have increased, and could have been caused by processes including arctic amplification, jet stream meandering, and tropical expansion. This volume documents various climate extreme events and associated changes that have been analyzed through diagnostics, modeling, and statistical approaches. The identification of patterns and mechanisms can aid the prediction of future extreme events. Volume highlights include: * Compilation of processes and mechanisms unique to individual weather and climate extreme events * Discussion of climate model performance in terms of simulating high-impact weather and climate extremes * Summary of various existing theories, including controversial ones, on how climate extremes will continue to become stronger and more frequent Climate Extremes: Patterns and Mechanisms is a valuable resource for scientists and graduate students in the fields of geophysics, climate physics, natural hazards, and environmental science.

    Bokens innehåll är nog bra, men lite mer svårtillgängligt än vad provläsningskapitlet antydde.

    Men - nästan alla bilder är i svart-vitt och det är många färgutskrifter, där man skall tolka reslutatet genom att skilja mellan olika röda/gula och blå nyanser, och alla är lika grå som en vart skatt om natten.

    Och inte har de lagt upp en hemsida med illustrationerna, så man kan få reda på där vad författarna egentligen kommit fram till. Svagt !! Amerikanska läroböcker brukar åt... Läs hela recensionen
