Field Guide to California Rivers (California Natural History by Tim Palmer

By Tim Palmer

Award-winning writer, naturalist, and conservationist Tim Palmer offers the realm of California rivers during this functional and encouraging box consultant. Loaded with tips about the place to hike, fish, canoe, kayak, and raft, it deals an interpretive strategy that finds geology, plant and wild lifestyles, hydrologic tactics, and different normal phenomena. Palmer studies on conservation with a point of view from many years of private engagement. greater than one hundred fifty streams are featured, 50 riparian species are illustrated, and one hundred eighty images express the essence of California’s rivers. Palmer brings a common historical past consultant, a sport consultant, and an creation to river ecology jointly in a single illuminating quantity; it belongs in each river lover’s booklet assortment, boat, and backpack.

Human Dimensions of Global Environmental Change: Research Pathways for the Next Decade

Committee at the Human Dimensions of world switch and Committee on worldwide switch study, Board on Environmental swap and Society, coverage department, department of Behavioral and Social Sciences and schooling, nationwide learn Council

This e-book is extracted from a miles higher file, worldwide Environmental swap: examine Pathways for the subsequent Decade, which addresses the complete variety of the medical concerns bearing on worldwide environmental switch and gives tips to the clinical attempt on those concerns within the usa. This quantity involves bankruptcy 7 of that record, ''Human Dimensions of world Environmental Change,'' which used to be written for the record by means of the Committee at the Human Dimensions of world switch of the nationwide examine Council (NRC). It offers findings and conclusions at the key medical questions in human dimensions learn, the teachings which have been discovered during the last decade, and the study imperatives for international switch examine funded from the us.

Applied Thermodynamics for Meteorologists

This textbook on atmospheric thermodynamics is for college students of meteorology or atmospheric technological know-how. It additionally serves as a reference textual content for operating execs in meteorology and climate forecasting. it really is certain since it offers whole, calculus-based derivations of easy physics from first ideas, and connects mathematical relationships to real-world, sensible climate forecasting purposes.

4). 7) are located in the south and west of the study domain. These represent the downwind ­regions of the storm circulation, where air masses had longer over-land fetch. These isotope data suggest that rainout rates far exceeded the resupply of moisture from the land surface along these circulation trajectories, and by the time air parcels have reached the southwest quadrant of the storm much of their vapor had precipitated out. The highest rainout fractions were observed shortly after landfall, consistent with the peak in rain rates at coastal mid-Atlantic sites.

0‰. 1‰), and then slowly began to rise. The trend in deuterium excess at the Colcord site is indicative of a mix of precipitation from the midlatitude trough and Sandy associated waters. 5‰. 4‰ and remained steady at these levels. 3 LAGRANGIAN BACK-TRAJECTORY ANALYSIS In order to assess the isotopic evolution of cyclonic moisture associated with Superstorm Sandy, information is needed on the isotopic composition of source moisture (d0). , 2014). Here we use the stochastic time-inverted Lagrangian transfer (STILT) model to estimate the source vapor isotopic composition for each hour that precipitation was collected at the four focus sites.
