TitleAn Introduction to Complex Systems : Society, Ecology, and Nonlinear Dynamics
Author(s)Fieguth, Paul
PublicationCham, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer International Publishing, 2017.
DescriptionXII, 346 p. 243 illus., 178 illus. in color : online resource
Abstract NoteThis undergraduate text explores a variety of large-scale phenomena - global warming, ice ages, water, poverty - and uses these case studies as a motivation to explore nonlinear dynamics, power-law statistics, and complex systems. Although the detailed mathematical descriptions of these topics can be challenging, the consequences of a system being nonlinear, power-law, or complex are in fact quite accessible. This book blends a tutorial approach to the mathematical aspects of complex systems together with a complementary narrative on the global/ecological/societal implications of such systems. Nearly all engineering undergraduate courses focus on mathematics and systems which are small scale, linear, and Gaussian. Unfortunately there is not a single large-scale ecological or social phenomenon that is scalar, linear, and Gaussian. This book offers students insights to better understand the large-scale problems facing the world and to realize that these cannot be solved by a single, narrow academic field or perspective. Instead, the book seeks to emphasize understanding, concepts, and ideas, in a way that is mathematically rigorous, so that the concepts do not feel vague, but not so technical that the mathematics get in the way. The book is intended for undergraduate students in a technical domain such as engineering, computer science, physics, mathematics, and environmental studies

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

TitleShallow Clouds, Water Vapor, Circulation, and Climate Sensitivity
Author(s)Pincus, Robert;Winker, David;Bony, Sandrine;Stevens, Bjorn
PublicationCham, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer International Publishing, 2018.
DescriptionVIII, 396 p. 144 illus., 134 illus. in color : online resource
Abstract NoteThis volume presents a series of overview articles arising from a workshop exploring the links among shallow clouds, water vapor, circulation, and climate sensitivity. It provides a state-of-the art synthesis of understanding about the coupling of clouds and water vapor to the large-scale circulation. The emphasis is on two phenomena, namely the self-aggregation of deep convection and interactions between low clouds and the large-scale environment, with direct links to the sensitivity of climate to radiative perturbations. Each subject is approached using simulations, observations, and synthesizing theory; particular attention is paid to opportunities offered by new remote-sensing technologies, some still prospective. The collection provides a thorough grounding in topics representing one of the World Climate Research Program???s Grand Challenges. Previously published in Surveys in Geophysics, Volume 38, Issue 6, 2017 The articles ???Observing Convective Aggregation???, ???An Observational View of Relationships Between Moisture Aggregation, Cloud, and Radiative Heating Profiles???, ???Implications of Warm Rain in Shallow Cumulus and Congestus Clouds for Large-Scale Circulations???, ???A Survey of Precipitation-Induced Atmospheric Cold Pools over Oceans and Their Interactions with the Larger-Scale Environment???, ???Low-Cloud Feedbacks from Cloud-Controlling Factors: A Review???, ???Mechanisms and Model Diversity of Trade-Wind Shallow Cumulus Cloud Feedbacks: A Review???, ???Structure and Dynamical Influence of Water Vapor in the Lower Tropical Troposphere???, ???Emerging Technologies and Synergies for Airborne and Space-Based Measurements of Water Vapor Profiles???, ???Observational Constraints on Cloud Feedbacks: The Role of Active Satellite Sensors???, and ???EUREC4A: A Field Campaign to Elucidate the Couplings Between Clouds, Convection and Circulation??? are available as open access articles under a CC BY 4.0 license at link.springer.com

TitleAtomic and Molecular Radiative Processes : With Applications to Modern Spectroscopy and the Greenhouse Effect
Author(s)Krainov, Vladimir;Smirnov, Boris M
PublicationCham, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer International Publishing, 2019.
DescriptionXVI, 273 p. 64 illus., 9 illus. in color : online resource
Abstract NoteThis book describes selected problems in contemporary spectroscopy in the context of quantum mechanics and statistical physics. It focuses on elementary radiative processes involving atomic particles (atoms, molecules, ions), which include radiative transitions between discrete atomic states, the photoionization of atoms, photorecombination of electrons and ions, bremsstrahlung, photodissociation of molecules, and photoattachment of electrons to atoms. In addition to these processes, the transport of resonant radiation in atomic gases and propagation of infrared radiation in molecular gases are also considered. The book subsequently addresses applied problems such as optical pumping, cooling of gases via laser resonance radiation, light-induced drift of gas atoms, photoresonant plasma, re???ection of radio waves from the ionosphere, and detection of submillimeter radiation using Rydberg atoms. Lastly, topical examples in atmospheric and climate change science are presented, such as lightning channel glowing, emission of the solar photosphere, and the greenhouse phenomenon in the atmospheres of the Earth and Venus. Along with researchers, both graduate and undergraduate students in atomic, molecular and atmospheric physics will find this book a useful and timely guide

TitleThe Earth's Hydrological Cycle
Author(s)Bengtsson, L;Bonnet, R.-M;Calisto, M;Destouni, G;Gurney, R;Johannessen, J;Kerr, Y;Lahoz, W.A;Rast, M
PublicationDordrecht, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer Netherlands, 2014.
DescriptionVIII, 409 p : online resource
Abstract NoteThis book gives a comprehensive presentation of our present understanding of the Earth's Hydrological cycle and the problems, consequences and impacts that go with this topic. Water is a central component in the Earth's system. It is indispensable for life on Earth in its present form and influences virtually every aspect of our planet's life support system. On relatively short time scales, atmospheric water vapor interacts with the atmospheric circulation and is crucial in forming the Earth's climate zones. Water vapor is the most powerful of the greenhouse gases and serves to enhance the tropospheric temperature. The dominant part of available water on Earth resides in the oceans. Parts are locked up in the land ice on Greenland and Antarctica and a smaller part is estimated to exist as groundwater. If all the ice over the land and all the glaciers were to melt, the sea level would rise by some 80 m. In comparison, the total amount of water vapor in the atmosphere is small; it amounts to ~ 25 kg/m2, or the equivalent of 25 mm water for each column of air. Yet atmospheric water vapor is crucial for the Earth???s energy balance. The book gives an up to date presentation of the present knowledge.
