The global monsoon system : research and forecast by C.-P Chang( )

9 editions published between 2005 and 2017 in English and held by 1,180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is the third edition of a book series on the state of the science of monsoon research and forecasting. The series is updated approximately every five years based on the invited reviews of the World Meteorological Organization's International Workshop on Monsoons (IWM). The third edition is an outgrowth of the reviews initially presented in late 2013 at IWM-V, with manuscripts revised and updated through 2015 and early 2016. As in previous editions, the book builds on the concept that the monsoon in various parts of the globe can be viewed as components of an integrated global monsoon system, while also emphasizing that significant region-specific characteristics are present in individual monsoon regions. In addition to the regional monsoons, the current volume covers contemporary topics with emphasis on intraseasonal oscillations, extreme weather, decadal variability, climate change, and summary of recent field experiments including CINDY/DYNAMO in the Indian Ocean and the Asian Monsoon Years."--Publisher's website

Climate change and human health : risks and responses by Andrew J McMichael( )

9 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 786 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The world's climate system is an integral part of the complex of life-supporting processes. Climate and weather have always had a powerful impact on human health and well-being. But like other large natural systems, the global climate system is coming under pressure from human activities. Global climate change is, therefore, a newer challenge to ongoing efforts to protect human health. This volume seeks to describe the context and process of global climate change, its actual or likely impacts on health, and how human societies and their governments should respond, with particular focus on the health sector
Climate : into the 21st century by World Meteorological Organization( Book )

It identifies some of the most arresting examples of climate events, their impact on people's lives, and how we can face the future challenges of climate change. Lavishly illustrated with over 400 colour images and written in an accessible and engaging style, this book will be attractive to a general audience interested in climate issues. It will also be valuable as a teaching resource for students in schools and universities."--Jacket
Renewable energy sources and climate change mitigation : special report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change by Ottmar Edenhofer( Book )

5 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 498 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Special Report (IPCC-SRREN) assesses the potential role of renewable energy in the mitigation of climate change. It covers the six most important renewable energy sources - bioenergy, solar, geothermal, hydropower, ocean and wind energy - as well as their integration into present and future energy systems. It considers the environmental and social consequences associated with the deployment of these technologies and presents strategies to overcome technical as well as non-technical obstacles to their application and diffusion. SRREN brings a broad spectrum of technology-specific experts together with scientists studying energy systems as a whole. Prepared following strict IPCC procedures, it presents an impartial assessment of the current state of knowledge: it is policy relevant but not policy prescriptive. SRREN is an invaluable assessment of the potential role of renewable energy for the mitigation of climate change for policymakers, the private sector and academic researchers
