Monsoons and climate change : observations and modeling / [edited by] Lelia Maria Vespoli de Carvalho and Charles Jones

Contributor(s): de Carvalho, Leila Maria Vespoli [editoe] | Jones, Charles [editor].
Material type: TextTextSeries: Springer climate.Publisher: Cham : Springer, 2016Description: x, 253 pages : color illustrations, color maps ; 25 cm.ISBN: 9783319216492.Subject(s): Monsoons | Climatic changes | MeteorologyDDC classification: 551.5184
Contents:
1. The Monsoons and Climate Change -- 2. Global Monsoon in a Changing Climate -- 3. South Asian Summer Monsoon Variability in a Changing Climate -- 4. Projecting Changes of the Asian Summer Monsoon Through the 21st Century -- 5. The Australian Summer Monsoon and Its Potential Changes in Future Climate -- 6. The South American Monsoon -- 7. Recent and Possible Future Variations in the North American Monsoon -- 8. Connection Between the North and South American Monsoons -- 9. The East African Monsoon System: Seasonal Climatologies and Recent Variations -- 10. The Madden-Julian Oscillation and the Monsoons -- 11. Glaciers and Monsoon Systems.
Summary: This book presents a global overview examining monsoon variability in South Asia, Australian, South America and North American, as well as a focus on glaciers and monsoon systems. Monsoon systems are important components of the Earth's climate and play fundamental roles in water and energy balances. The variability and changes in the monsoons affect millions of people and the economies of many countries. This book presents the physical mechanisms involved with monsoon systems, including recent modeling advances addressing climate changes and future projections. The Monsoons and Climate Change will be of interest to both graduate students and researchers.
