Climate Variability and Sunspot Activity : Analysis of the Solar Influence on Climate Hardback
by Indrani Roy
Part of the Springer Atmospheric Sciences series
This book promotes a better understanding of the role of the sun on natural climate variability.
It is a comprehensive reference book that appeals to an academic audience at the graduate, post-graduate and PhD level and can be used for lectures in climatology, environmental studies and geography.
This work is the collection of lecture notes as well as synthesized analyses of published papers on the described subjects.
It comprises 18 chapters and is divided into three parts: Part I discusses general circulation, climate variability, stratosphere-troposphere coupling and various teleconnections.
Part II mainly explores the area of different solar influences on climate.
It also discusses various oceanic features and describes ocean-atmosphere coupling.
But, without prior knowledge of other important influences on the earth's climate, the understanding of the actual role of the sun remains incomplete.
Hence, Part III covers burning issues such as greenhouse gas warming, volcanic influences, ozone depletion in the stratosphere, Arctic and Antarctic sea ice, etc.
At the end of the book, there are few questions and exercises for students.
This book is based on the lecture series that was delivered at the University of Oulu, Finland as part of M.Sc./ PhD module.
