Название: Hydroclimatology. Perspectives and applications
Автор: Shelton M.L.
This book is intended for students studying atmospheric science and/or
climatology and those specializing in hydrology. Chapters 1 and 2 set the conceptual
structure of hydroclimatology. Two climate paradigms are introduced
to complement the recognized atmospheric and terrestrial branches of the
hydrologic cycle and their links with the climate system. Measurement and
estimation of hydroclimatic variables are addressed in Chapters 3, 4, and 5.
Atmospheric data in Chapter 3 are familiar to atmospheric science students,
while data measurements at the Earth’s surface covered in Chapter 4 are familiar
to hydrology students. Remote sensing in Chapter 5 focuses on satellite and
radar data specifically relevant to hydroclimatic analysis. Chapter 6 addresses
the runoff process and is intended to provide background in hydrology for
atmospheric science students. Hydrology students will benefit most from the
spatial and temporal variability of atmospheric phenomena and the interaction
of surface and atmospheric events emphasized in Chapters 7 and 8. Floods and
drought, Chapters 9 and 10, respectively, provide opportunities for all students
to examine the circumstances surrounding the occurrence of extreme weather
events and the role played by complex atmospheric circulation features and
distant climatic circumstances that influence these events.
