The asian monsoon (series: springer praxis / environmental sciences), 1st ed. 2019 Environmental Sciences Series

Langue : Anglais

More than half of the world's people inhabit the region of the Asian monsoon-a region where torrential rains, floods, storms, cold-air surges, droughts, and heat waves are a part of the economy, culture, and rhythms of life. Showing the strongest seasonal variations in the Earth's climate system, the Asian monsoon has far-reaching impacts on global climate and the environment. Its variability exemplifies complex interactions among the Earth's surface, ocean, atmosphere, and biosphere. Prediction of monsoon climate fluctuation and future change is one of the greatest scientific challenges and deepest societal concerns. paleoclimate records, present evidence of human influences on monsoon climate, and describe the links of the monsoon to the economy and to human health.This is a comprehensive interdisciplinary text book summarizing new knowledge of Asian monsoon climate variability, dynamics, modeling, and prediction, and human influence and its links to environmetal/economic issues.
