Of likely interest to meteorologists, climatologists, and economists, as well as decision makers in government and industry."--SciTech Book News"Elsner (Florida State Univ.) and Kara (NASA) offer an excellent review of past tropical storms. Cycles and trends are documented and compared to solar activity and volcanic activity. Every conceivable presentation--lists, figures, tables, and maps--shows how they have affected each coastal country from Texas to Maine as well as Puerto Rico, Jamaica, and Bermuda. The emphasis is on physical models to explain statistical relationships of hurricane models to explain statistical relationships of hurricane activity with respect to weather and climate events. It also intended as a reference
landfalling storms; the prediction models used in forecasting; and societal vulnerability to hurricanes, including ideas for modeling the relationship between climatological data and analysis in the social and economic sciences.. This book provides a comprehensive analysis of North Atlantic hurricanes and what they mean to society. Topics include the climatology of tropical cyclones in general and those of the North Atlantic in particular; the major North Atlantic hurricanes, focusing on U.S. Called the greatest storms on the planet, hurricanes of the North Atlantic Ocean often cause tremendous social and economic upheaval in the United States, Mexico, and the Caribbean. It is intended as an intermediary between hurricane climate research and the users of hurricane information. And with the increasing development of coastal areas, the impact of these storms will likely increase
