Energy and Water Cycles in the Climate System

£80.00

Product description

Hardback in VGC. Looks new inside. Previous owner's name discreetly on front flyleaf.

Water is the most effective agent in the climate system to moderate energy transfer by radioactive processes, through its exchanges of latent heat and within cascades of chemical processes. It is the source of all life on earth, and once convective clouds are formed, it enables large vertical transports of momentum, heat and various atmospheric constituents. Water triggers very complex processes at the earth's continental surfaces and within the oceans. At least water in its gaseous phase is the most important greenhouse-gas. Numerical modelling and measurements of the state of the climate system needs a very thorough understanding of all these processes and their various interactions and forcings. Therefore the management of the World Climate Research Programme established the new programme GEWEX (Global Energy and Water Cycle Experiment) in 1988, specifically defined to determine the energy and water transport in the fast components of the climate system with the modelling and measurement means presently available and to provide new capabilities for the future. This book describes all aspects of the GEWEX.
