"Frontiers in Decadal Climate Variability" rap. by Amanda Purcell and Nancy Huddleston

"Frontiers in Decadal Climate Variability" by Amanda Purcell and Nancy Huddleston
Board on Atmospheric Sciences and Climate; Ocean Studies Board; Division on Earth and Life Studies; National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine
NAS Press | 2016 | ISBN: 0309444616 9780309444613 | 92 pages | PDF | 10 MB

This volume is dedicated to understanding climate variability on the decadal timescale to examine variability in Earth’s climate on decadal timescales, defined as 10 to 30 years. Ocean and climate scientists reviewed the state of the science of decadal climate variability and its relationship to rates of human-caused global warming, and they explored opportunities for improvement in modeling and observations and assessing knowledge gaps.

Extreme Ocean Waves by Efim Pelinovsky and Christian Kharif

Extreme Ocean Waves by Efim Pelinovsky and Christian Kharif
English | 2008 | ISBN: 1402083130 | 200 Pages | PDF | 6 MB

Extreme, freak or rogue waves are produced by a number of physical mechanisms that focus the water-wave energy into a small area, due to wave instability, chaotic behaviour, dispersion (frequency modulation), refraction (presence of variable currents or bottom topography), soliton interactions, etc.

Remote Sensing of Atmosphere and Ocean from Space: Models, Instruments and Techniques (repost)

Remote Sensing of Atmosphere and Ocean from Space: Models, Instruments and Techniques (Advances in Global Change Research) by Frank S. Marzano and Guido Visconti
English | 2003-01-31 | ISBN: 1402009437 | 256 pages | PDF | 7.2 mb

This book is a collection of the lectures, held at the International Summer School ISSAOS-2000 in L'Aquila (Italy), given by invited lecturers coming from both Europe and the USA. The goal of the book is to provide a broad panorama of spaceborne remote sensing techniques, at both microwave and visible-infrared bands and by both active and passive sensors, for the retrieval of atmospheric and oceanic parameters.
