Currents of change : impacts of El Niño and La Niña on climate and society by Michael H Glantz( Book )

31 editions published between 1996 and 2001 in English and Chinese and held by 1,600 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This expanded and updated edition of Currents of Change explains in simple terms what El Nino and La Nina are, how their effects might be forecast, and what their impacts on humans are throughout the world. Examining for the first time the major El Nino of 1997-1998, this book explores what we can learn from past events, what we can do to ameliorate the worst impacts of these extremes, and how global warming might affect El Nino and La Nina events in future decades."--Jacket
Desertification : environmental degradation in and around arid lands by Michael H Glantz( Book )

8 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 566 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Drought and hunger in Africa : denying famine a future( Book )

1 edition published in 1987 in English and held by 512 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This timely volume presents a synthesis of the ideas that emerged from a multidisciplinary colloquium held at the National Center for Atmospheric Research in August 1985. The aim was to assess the impact of drought as a major factor in the agrarian crisis in sub-Saharan Africa. Leading authorities engage in discussion of the African environment, the socio-political factors that generate famine, case studies of the effects of famine on these social structures, and finally possible lessons to be learnt on dealing with famine worldwide, thus developing an up-to-date and cohesive study of the problems of African development. Despite the current popular interest in the African famine problem, Drought and Hunger in Africa is the first major collection of the results that have emerged from the recent profusion of research relating to the subject. As such, this book has relevance, not only in Africa, but also to scientists, social- scientists and policy makers in the West, and to other areas of the third world which are facing the problems of drought and famine.--Publisher description

La Niña and its impacts : facts and speculation by Michael H Glantz( Book )

14 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 407 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The overriding purpose of the Summit was to draw attention to the importance of improving our understanding of the La Nina phenomenon, identifying what is known, what is not yet known, and what societies need to know in order to prepare for La Nina's impacts. This volume provides the current state of the science of forecasting La Nina as well as case studies of La Nina impacts around the world and in different economic sectors."--Jacket

Climate variability, climate change, and fisheries by Michael H Glantz( Book )

19 editions published between 1990 and 2009 in English and held by 371 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As we approach the end of the twentieth century, public and scientific attention is focusing increasingly on the detection and assessment of changes in our environment. This unique volume addresses the potential implications of global warming for fisheries and the societies which depend on them. Using a 'forecasting by analogy' approach, which draws upon experiences from the recent past in coping with regional fluctuations in the abundance or availability of living marine resources, it is shown how we might be able to assess our ability to respond to the consequences of future environmental changes induced by a potential global warming. The book takes the form of a series of integrated case studies from around the globe, which are presented by an interdisciplinary group of leading researchers. This important and thought-provoking volume will be of interest to a wide range of scientists working in the fields of biology, marine and environmental science, climatology, economics and anthropology, as well as resource managers and policy makers concerned with the health and future of living marine resources

Creeping environmental problems and sustainable development in the Aral Sea basin by Michael H Glantz( Book )

19 editions published between 1999 and 2008 in English and held by 266 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Environmental degradation in the Aral Sea basin in Central Asia has been a touchstone for increasing public awareness of environmental issues. The Aral crisis has been touted as a "quiet Chernobyl" and as one of the worst human-made environmental catastrophes of the twentieth century. This multidisciplinary book is the first to comprehensively describe the slow onset of low grade but incremental changes (i.e., creeping environmental change) that affected the region and its peoples. Through a set of case studies, it describes how the region's decision-makers allowed these changes to grow into an environmental and societal nightmare. It outlines many lessons to be learned for other areas undergoing detrimental creeping environmental change, and provides an important example of how to approach such disasters for students and researchers of environmental studies, global change, political science and history

Scientific, environmental, and political issues in the Circum-Caspian region by environmental, and political issues in the Circum-Caspian region NATO Advanced Research Workshop on the scientific( Book )

9 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The rising waters have inundated coastal areas, including buildings, settlements, transportation infrastructure, and farmlands in each of the five countries that border the sea. The Caspian Sea is also rich in resources such as fisheries and hydrocarbons. The caviar of the Caspian sturgeon is a highly valued export commodity, but the fishery is at risk from the rising sea level, pollution and oil spills. The oil reserves of the region are second in size only to the Persian Gulf. Only recently the Caspian was shared by two sovereign nations: the Soviet Union and the Islamic Republic of Iran. With the breakup of the USSR in 1991, three additional sovereign riparian States were added to the Caspian coastline: Azerbaijan, Kazakstan and Turkmenistan. International oil politics have become more complicated and more intense since the breakup, raising such international legal issues as the legal status of the sea (or is it a lake?) and its overland pipelines across different countries to sea ports with access to world markets. Problems in other semi-enclosed bodies of water are also discussed, since such seas share similar environmental problems and potential solutions
