Typhoon Turning Atlas from the Author: Weihong Qian. Typhoons with unusual tracks are difficult to forecast with respect to whether, when, and where typhoon turning occurs based on traditional synoptic charts and numerical weather forecast model products. This typhoon turning atlas provides an additional tool to deal with the typhoon turning question by using a physical decomposition method together with thousands of plots. In particular, this atlas provides important information of 322 historical typhoons that occurred in the past three decades and demonstrates how they were influenced respectively. Contents:Variable DecompositionTyphoons Without Obvious Turning MotionsIntensity Peaked in the South China SeaIntensity Peaked in the PhilippinesIntensity Peaked in the Taiwan AreaIntensity Peaked in the East Seas of ChinaIntensity Peaked in the Pacific Readership: Graduates, researchers, and meteorologists who are interested in typhoons and forecasting, earth science, meteorology, and complex systems. Keywords:Typhoon Turning;Atlas;Physical Decomposition;Tropical CycloneKey Features:This atlas provides typhoon tracking, covers mathematical decomposition, and provides spherical-harmonic expansionClassification of the positions from tropical disturbance to a typhoon's peak intensity as well as an explanation of the diagnostic method of typhoon motions in this atlas will be surely useful as a good reference for researchers and forecasters in the practice of typhoon prediction

Temporal Climatology And Anomalous Weather Analysis from the Author: Weihong Qian. By breaking down atmospheric variables into temporal climatologies and anomalies, this book demonstrates that all weather extremes and climatic events are directly associated with the anomaly component of atmospheric motion. We can use the anomaly-based synoptic chart and dynamical parameters to objectively describe these extremes and events. The conception and differences of weather, climate and general circulation tend to confuse us, because there are no clear physical definitions available for them. Weather extremes such as heat waves, cold surges, freezing rains, heavy rains, severe drought, unusual storm tracks, and tornados are common on our planet’s surface. Climatic events such as Arctic warming and declining sea ice have become hot topics in recent years. An approach based on breaking down total variables into temporal climatologies and anomalies can be used to identify general circulation, analyze climatic anomalies and forecast weather extremes. Accordingly, this book will appeal to students, teachers and forecasters in the field of weather and climate alike.

Atlas from the Author: Qizhang Dong. A futuristic tale set in a long-lost fictional city similar to post-colonial Hong Kong follows the efforts of a team of archaeologists to reconstruct its metropolis through historical maps, documents and artifacts that are translated through anecdotal experiences and social commentary.

Wildland Fire Danger Estimation And Mapping from the Author: Emilio Chuvieco. The book presents a wide range of techniques for extracting information from satellite remote sensing images in forest fire danger assessment. It covers the main concepts involved in fire danger rating, and analyses the inputs derived from remotely sensed data for mapping fire danger at both the local and global scale. The questions addressed concern the estimation of fuel moisture content, the description of fuel structural properties, the estimation of meteorological danger indices, the analysis of human factors associated with fire ignition, and the integration of different risk factors in a geographic information system for fire danger management.

The Viking Atlas Of World War Ii from the Author: John Pimlott. An estimated 50 million people perished in World War II. Millions across the globe fled war zones to be replaced by soldiers of all creeds and backgrounds. The war changed the world. As technology raced ahead, this was matched by political change, the final end of old empires and the growth of new superpowers.
