This book provides an in-depth analysis of tropical cyclones in the South Pacific, discussing both the characteristics and behaviors of tropical cyclones, and the impacts these storms have on island physical geography and landscape change. The second half of the book presents a whole field of important, new insight. A thorough examination of the links between climate and landscape are analyzed through detailed case studies based on 10 years of original research showing the importance of tropical cyclones for island physical environments, by triggering enormous responses in e.g. river systems,…mehr

Produktbeschreibung
This book provides an in-depth analysis of tropical cyclones in the South Pacific, discussing both the characteristics and behaviors of tropical cyclones, and the impacts these storms have on island physical geography and landscape change. The second half of the book presents a whole field of important, new insight. A thorough examination of the links between climate and landscape are analyzed through detailed case studies based on 10 years of original research showing the importance of tropical cyclones for island physical environments, by triggering enormous responses in e.g. river systems, slope processes, coastlines, and even island formation and/or destruction. A focus on the Pacific and the Pacific Islands cyclones is vital since a major area for research in climate change and climate extremes is located within this region. The South Pacific is one of the most important areas and factors of El Nino. It is the center of attention for climate change issues, such as ocean warming and sea level rise. As such, this book is an important and valuable addition to the existing literature on climate change. TOC:Part I: Tropical Cyclones.- Chapter 1: Introduction.- Chapter 2: The South Pacific Region.- Chapter 3: Tropical Cyclogenesis.- Chapter 4: Tropical Cyclone Structure.- Chapter 5: Tropical Cyclone Characteristics and Behavior.- Chapter 6: Associated Meteorological Conditions.- Chapter 7: Climate Change.- Part II: Geomorphic Impacts.- Chapter 8: Island Sensitivity to Tropical Cyclones.- Chapter 9: Coastal Geomorphology.- Chapter 10: Slope Stability.- Chapter 11: River Hydrology and Floods.- Chapter 12: Fluvial Geomorphology.- Chapter 13: Conclusions.- Bibliography.- Appendix.

Rezensionen
From the reviews: "Tropical Cyclones: Climatology and Impacts in the South Pacific describes the climatology, structure, and behavior of tropical cyclones in the South Pacific and ... impacts of these storms on the physical environment of the islands in their path. ... The text is ... well laid out with black-and-white photographs, tables, and graphs. ... appealing to students and professionals from the region. ... It would be an excellent resource for climatologists and educators ... . Researchers from other disciplines ... will also find this volume valuable." (Mark Sinclair, Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society, April, 2009)
