GL0BAL TROPICAL CYCLOGENESIS (Second Edition)

Eugene A. Sharkov

GL0BAL TROPICAL CYCLOGENESIS (Second Edition)</ This book presents the first physical findings of an investigation into the spatio-temporal characteristics of the global tropical cyclogenesis. In the decade after the publication of the first edition, many important scientific results have been obtained using methods and techniques developed by the author, including
A principal feature of this book is the integrated description of spatial-temporal and structural properties of atmosphere and limitations of remote sensing methods in monitoring and mitigating natural hazards, and there are numerous practical applications and illustrations taken from air-borne, ship-borne and the most up-to-date laboratory experiments.
