TitleThe Exo-Weather Report : Exploring Diverse Atmospheric Phenomena Around the Universe
Author(s)Stevenson, David S
PublicationCham, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer International Publishing, 2016.
DescriptionXVI, 452 p. 116 illus., 113 illus. in color : online resource
Abstract NoteDavid Stevenson???s new book links the meteorology of the Earth to that of other planets, stars, and clusters of galaxies, showing the similarities and differences between terrestrial weather and that of weather on other worlds. Because Earth is not unique in having weather, there is much to learn from other planets with atmospheres that show the movement of energy from hotter to colder areas. The weather seen on Earth and other known planetary systems are examined to elaborate the connection between climate and the development of life. The weather on Earth and other Solar System planets is a manifestation of the huge energy budget imparted by our star, the Sun, but weather doesn???t stop at the shores of our Solar System. The author brings together the latest information from satellites and probes, such as Cassini and Hubble, to show its larger place in the astronomical picture. Inferences are drawn about the weather and climate of a large number of other planetary systems that lie far from our own. ??Additionally, the author expands our understanding of what exactly weather is comprised of by exploring the kind of ???weather??? experienced on the largest observable scales in the universe

TitleIntegrative Study of the Mean Sea Level and Its Components
Author(s)Cazenave, Anny;Champollion, Nicolas;Paul, Frank;Benveniste, J??r??me
PublicationCham, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer International Publishing, 2017.
DescriptionVII, 416 p. 143 illus., 100 illus. in color : online resource
Abstract NoteThis volume presents the most recent results of global mean sea level variations over the satellite altimetry era (starting in the early 1990s) and associated contributions, such as glaciers and ice sheets mass loss, ocean thermal expansion, and land water storage changes. Sea level is one of the best indicators of global climate changes as it integrates the response of several components of the climate system to external forcing factors (including anthropogenic forcing) and internal climate variability. Providing long, accurate records of the sea level at global and regional scales and of the various components causing sea level changes is of crucial importance to improve our understanding of climate processes at work and to validate the climate models used for future projections. The Climate Change Initiative project of the European Space Agency has provided a first attempt to produce consistent and continuous space-based records for several climate parameters observable from space, among them sea level. This book presents current knowledge of the sea level budget over the altimetry era and 20th century. Previously published in Surveys in Geophysics, Volume 38, Issue 1, 2017

TitleClimate Change Modeling Methodology : Selected Entries from the Encyclopedia of Sustainability Science and Technology
Author(s)Rasch, Philip J
PublicationNew York, NY, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer New York, 2012.
DescriptionVI, 338 p : online resource
Abstract NoteThe Earth's average temperature has risen by 1.4??F over the past century, and computer models project that it will rise much more over the next hundred years, with significant impacts on weather, climate, and human society. Many climate scientists attribute these increases to the buildup of greenhouse gases produced by the burning of fossil fuels and to the anthropogenic production of short-lived climate pollutants. Climate Change Modeling Methodologies: Selected Entries from the Encyclopedia of Sustainability Science and Technology provides readers with an introduction to the tools and analysis techniques used by climate change scientists to interpret the role of these forcing agents on climate.?? Readers will also gain a deeper understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of these models and how to test and assess them.?? The contributions include a glossary of key terms and a concise definition of the subject for each topic, as well as recommendations for sources of more detailed information. Features authoritative, peer-reviewed contributions on the development and use of??contemporary methods in climate change science Provides insight into the construction, assessment, and testing of climate models Covers individual component models for the atmosphere, ocean, land, and ice, and discusses their contribution to an example of climate change in monsoon systems Discusses how climate change models can shed light on the changing climate of the past and on possible shifts in the future

TitleOn the Shores of Titan's Farthest Sea : A Scientific Novel
Author(s)Carroll, Michael
PublicationCham, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer International Publishing, 2015.
DescriptionXIII, 268 p. 8 illus., 3 illus. in color : online resource
Abstract NoteTitan is practically a planet in its own right, with a diameter similar to that of Mercury, methane rainstorms, organic soot and ethane seas. All of the most detailed knowledge on the moon's geology, volcanology, meteorology, marine sciences and chemistry are gathered together here to paint a factually accurate hypothetical future of early human colonization on this strange world. The views from Titan???s Mayda Outpost are spectacular, but all is not well at the moon's remote science base. On the shore of a methane sea beneath glowering skies, atmospherics researcher Abigail Marco finds herself in the middle of murder, piracy and colleagues who seem to be seeing sea monsters and dead people from the past. On the Shores of Titan???s Farthest Sea provides thrills, excitement and mystery ??? couched in the latest science ??? on one of the Solar System???s most bizarre worlds, Saturn???s huge moon Titan. "This riveting story, set against a plausibly well integrated interplanetary space, carries us along with its bright and interesting characters. We feel absolutely transported to a hauntingly beautiful and alien Titan through Carroll's masterful weaving of art and science." ??? Jani Radebaugh, Professor of Planetary Sciences, Titan dune expert, BYU "It's a fun read! Really makes Titan come alive, literally..." ??? Astrophysicist and author Ralph Lorenz

TitleThe Sun and Space Weather
Author(s)Hanslmeier, Arnold
PublicationDordrecht, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer Netherlands, 2007.
DescriptionXIII, 315 p : online resource
Abstract NoteThis second edition is a great enhancement of literature which will help the reader get deeper into the specific topics. There are new sections included such as space weather data sources and examples, new satellite missions, and the latest results. At the end a comprehensive index is given which will allow the reader to quickly find his topics of interest. The Sun and Space weather are two rapidly evolving topics. The importance of the Sun for the Earth, life on Earth, climate and weather processes was recognized long ago by the ancients. Now, for the first time there is a continuous surveillance of solar activity at nearly all wavelengths. These data can be used to improve our understanding of the complex Sun-Earth interaction. The first chapters of the book deal with the Sun as a star and its activity phenomena as well as its activity cycle in order to understand the complex physics of the Sun-Earth system. The reader will see that there are many phenomena but still no definite explanations and models exist for many of them. Other topics are the influences on the Earth???s atmosphere, long and short term climate variations. The last chapters discuss the protection against enhanced radiation environment in view of upcoming manned missions to the Moon and Mars, and the threat from space debris, asteroids and meteoroids. Since the field is quite interdisciplinary, the book will be of interest to scientists working in different fields such as solar physics, geophysics, and space physics
