Synoptic climatology; methods and applications by Roger G Barry( Book )

29 editions published between 1973 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 812 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Synoptic and Dynamic Climatology provides a comprehensive account of the dynamical behavior 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 has reference sections and is illustrated with plates and nearly 300 figures." "The book is intended for advanced students in climatology and environmental and atmospheric sciences, as well as for professionals in the field of climate dynamics and variability. It presents both extablished findings about global climate and unresolved issues."--Jacket
Arctic and Alpine environments by Jack D Ives( Book )

The Arctic climate system by Mark C Serreze( Book )

23 editions published between 2005 and 2014 in English and held by 478 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This second edition brings this definitive book completely up to date with the many advances in our understanding of Arctic climate since the first edition was published in 2005. The book has also been extensively reorganized to weave issues of Arctic change throughout the text, rather than confining them to a single chapter. It is the first to provide an integrated assessment of the Arctic climate system, recognizing that a true understanding of how the Arctic functions lies in appreciating the interactions and linkages among its various components. The book begins with a historical perspective, followed by discussion of the basic physical and climatic characteristics of the Arctic. Following a review of past climates (paleoclimates), the book closes with an assessment of the Arctic's uncertain future. Though targeted mainly at advanced students and researchers, this book is accessible to anyone with an interest in the Arctic and a basic understanding of climate science"--

Essentials of the Earth's climate system by Roger G Barry( Book )

11 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 200 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"His concise, full color introduction to modern climatology covers all the key topics of climate science for intermediate undergraduate students on one-semester courses. The book progresses from climate processes to world climate types, past climate change and projected future climates, ending with climate applications."--
The global cryosphere : past, present, and future by Roger G Barry( Book )

4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 175 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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"--

Microclimate and local climate by Roger G Barry( Book )

11 editions published between 2016 and 2018 in English and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book provides an up-to-date, comprehensive treatment of the variables and processes of microclimate and local climate, including radiation balance and energy balance. It describes and explains the climate within the lower atmosphere and upper soil, the region critical to life on Earth. Topics that are covered include not only the physical processes that affect microclimate, but also biological processes that affect vegetation and animals, including people. A geographic tour of the microclimates of the major ecosystems around the world is included. All major biomes and surface types, including urban areas, are examined, and the effects of climate change on microclimate are described. This book is invaluable for advanced students and researchers in climatology in departments of environmental science, geography, meteorology, agricultural science, and forestry
