Product description


From the reviews:

"This book is a collection of 18 review articles about monsoons and monsoon-related topics. … This book appeals to researchers in monsoon and monsoon-related topics. It is also useful to graduate students in tropical meteorology. ... The significant strengths of this book are its broad scope, long bibliography, and the mostly up-to-date information it provides. … Many chapters contain useful discussion of future research directions. … I do recommend this book to all people who study monsoons and monsoon-related topics." (Winston C. Chao, Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society, March, 2008)

From the Back Cover

Satellite observations and computing technology have advanced our understanding of the monsoon climate enormously in the last two decades. The second edition of this established and much lauded work provides an update of the knowledge gained over this period, presenting the modern morphology and the physical principles of monsoon variation on all timescales, ranging from synoptic to tectonic timescales. The authors, all foremost experts in their respective fields, bring new ideas that can be expected to markedly improve the prediction of monsoon climate, expand our understanding of the monsoon environment by study of modern data and paleoclimate records, present evidence of human influences on monsoon climate, and describe the links of the monsoon to the economy and to human health.

This is a comprehensive interdisciplinary text book summarizing new knowledge of Asian monsoon climate variability, dynamics, modeling, and prediction, and human influence and its links to environmetal/economic issues.
