Knowledge of the fluxes and changes of phase of water are essential for an understanding of weather, climate and, indeed, of life itself. This book provides a state-of-the-art treatment of models and processes related to these fluxes. In order to provide authoritative and coherent coverage of an area of environmental science that is developing rapidly, the book draws upon the expertise of many of the world's leading researchers in meteorology, hydrology and oceanography.
'This ambitious and handsomely produced book succeeds in explaining the achievements and challenges of studies in the sub-disciplines of global energy and water cycles. Enough information is provided so that readers not familiar witha sub-discipline can appreciate what the basic physics and problems are ! Graduate students and researchers in meteorology, oceanography and hydrology will find this volume very useful.' Howard B. Bluestein, Times Higher Education Supplement 'This book can certainly be recommended to anyone interested in global cycles of energy and matter.' Leopold Haimberger, Meteorologische Zeitschrift '! an excellent introduction to current research connected to global hydrological cycles, and as such should be an especially good resource for graduate students or other scientists at a similar level of expertise.'
