About this book

Tropical cyclones are the most impressive and best phenomenon of the tropics, and this book fills a need for a thorough detailed book on the subject, concentrating on the remote sensing results on both initial and mature forms of tropical cyclones. It provides a comprehensive description of the physical, geophysical and meteorological foundations of global tropical cyclogenesis. The author emphasises the physical aspects necessary to judge the possibilities and limitations of monitoring mitigation methods, and includes numerous applications and illustrations from up-to-date airborne and satellite experiments.

New chapters in the second edition cover the possible impact of solar activity and effects of tropical cyclones on the upper atmosphere, time series and cumulative functions of global tropical cyclogenesis over 25 years, ionosphere and tropical cyclones activity, instability genesis in compress and saturated moist air atmosphere and complex satellite and in-situ "Scenario-TC" and "Global-RT" databases. A new Appendix gives quantitative data on spatio-temporal features of global and regional tropical cyclogenesis from 1983 to 2008.
