Precipitation (Meteorology)

Most popular at the top

  • Precipitation Modeling and Quantitative Analysisby Xiaofan Li; Shouting Gao

    Springer 2011; US$ 209.00

    The book examines surface rainfall processes through cloud-resolving modeling and quantitative analysis of surface rainfall budget and summarizes modeling and analysis results in recent seven years. The book shows validation of precipitation modeling against observations and derives a set of diagnostic precipitation equations. The book provides detailed... more...

  • Precipitationby Ian Strangeways

    Cambridge University Press 2006; US$ 44.00

    2006 reference on precipitation for academic researchers and professionals in environmental science and climatology and water resource management. more...

  • From Disaster Response to Risk Managementby Linda C. Botterill; Donald A. Wilhite

    Springer 2006; US$ 159.00

    An academically focused collection of papers highlighting the successes and challenges of a move from disaster to risk management in responding to drought. The book passes on the experiences gained from Australia?s trail-blazing new policy, introduced in 1992. more...

  • Aerosol Pollution Impact on Precipitationby Zev Levin; William R. Cotton

    Springer 2008; US$ 239.00

    Life on Earth is critically dependent upon the continuous cycling of water between oceans, continents and the atmosphere. Precipitation (including rain, snow, and hail) is the primary mechanism for transporting water from the atmosphere back to the Eartha (TM)s surface. It is also the key physical process that links aspects of climate, weather, and... more...

  • Avalanche Dynamicsby Shiva P. Pudasaini; Kolumban Hutter

    Springer 2007; US$ 239.00

    With an emphasis on snow avalanches, this book sets out to provide a survey and discussion about the motion of avalanche-like flows from initiation to run out. It is intended for a readership of researchers, graduate students and practitioners with backgrounds in geology, civil and mechanical engineering, applied mathematics and continuum physics. more...

  • In the Path of an Avalancheby Vivien Bowers

    Greystone Books 2012; US$ 12.95

    On a clear, cold morning in January 1998, in the Selkirk Mountains of southeastern British Columbia, six experienced skiers were buried in a massive avalanche. They didn?t have a chance. A combination of factors — steep, open terrain; an unstable winter snow pack; poor weather conditions; and a trigger provided by a handful of backcountry skiers —... more...

  • Drought and Water Crisesby Donald A. Wilhite

    Taylor and Francis 2005; US$ 184.95

    Today the world is facing a greater water crisis than ever. Droughts of lesser magnitude are resulting in greater impact. Even in years with normal precipitation, water shortages have become widespread in both developing and developed nations, in humid as well as arid climates. When faced with severe drought, governments become eager to act. Unfortunately,... more...

  • Precipitationby Silas C. Michaelides

    Springer 2008; US$ 239.00

    The book is based on selected contributions presented at the (General) Session on the "Observation, Prediction and Verification of Precipitation" of the 2006 EGU General Assembly held in Vienna, Austria. It focuses on current advances in the field of precipitation measurement (i.e. instrumentation), estimation (i.e. remote sensing) and prediction... more...

  • Deformation and Gravity Changeby Detlef Wolf; José Fernández

    Springer 2007; US$ 79.95

    Most of the papers in this book were presented at the workshop on "Deformation and Gravity Change: Indicators of Isostasy, Tectonics, Volcanism and Climate Change," which took place at the Casa de los Volcanes on Lanzarote, Spain, during March 1-4, 2005. It was jointly organized and supported by the International Association of Geodesy (IAG),... more...

  • Satellite Rainfall Applications for Surface Hydrologyby Mekonnen Gebremichael

    Springer 2009; US$ 209.00

    While there are a growing number of high-resolution space-based systems for measuring precipitation, instances of the use of these products for surface hydrology are rare. This book focuses on evaluating the potential, utility and application of high resolution satellite precipitation products in relation to surface hydrology. more...
