About this book

The book provides an updated description of climate variability in the Mediterranean basin, focusing on its strong inter-annual to decadal features. It describes both local physical processes responsible for these variability - such as changes in the surface properties and land use - and globalprocesses - such as changes in the large scale atmospheric circulation associated to global warming, NAO, tropical monsoon and ENSO. Regional climate change issues are also addressed.


1. Mediterranean Climate Variability over the last Centuries: a Review. 2. Relations Between Climate Variability in the Mediterranean Region and the Tropics: ENSO, South Asian and African Monsoons, Hurricanes and Saharan Dust. 3. Relations Between Variability in the Mediterranean Region and Mid-Latitude Variability. 4. Changes in the Oceanography of the Mediterranean sea and their link to Climate Variability. 5. The Atlantic and Mediterranean Sea as Connected System. 6. Cyclones in the Mediterranean Region: Climatology and Effects on the Environment. 7. Regional Atmospheric, Marine Processes and Climate Modelling. 8. The Mediterranean Climate Change Under Global Warming.
