Poetry. One needs only to watch and listen in gratitude as poems informed by Bronk, Niedecker, Olson (to name a few), and the landscape of Humboldt County, California, take shape in AREAS OF FOG, Joseph Massey's first full-length collection. "Joseph Massey sees with a composer's eye and sings in a microtonality all his own. Syllable by syllable phenomena miraculously unfold. This is fantastic work, understated, charmed, and open. The world simply happens in these poems and its moments are tuned marvels. You don't want to miss it"—Peter Gizzi. "These are poems of ear and eye, full of echoes and luminous images. With a sensuality born of melancholy, they attend to resonant details that hover at the edge of recognition, as when Pacific fog partly obscures the view"—Devin Johnston.

Will Dowd takes us on a whimsical journey through one year of New England weather in this engaging collection of essays. As unpredictable as its subject, Areas of Fog combines wit and poetry with humor and erudition. A fun, breezy, and discursive read, it is an intellectual game that exposes the artificiality of genres. Will Dowd is a writer and artist based outside Boston. He obtained his MFA in Creative Writing from New York University, where he received a Jacob K. Javits Fellowship; an MS from MIT, serving as a John Lyons Fellow; and a BA from Boston College, as a Presidential Scholar.

Atmospheric Pollutants in Forest Areas

Their Deposition and Interception

In November 1981 a first symposium with the topics of "Acid Deposition of Atmospheric Pollutants" was organised in OberursellTaunus to introduce the problems and first results of research-activities on wet and dry deposition of pollutants and on acid precipitation. In the meantime the hazard to forest and vegetation became more dramatic and research-projects to investigate the input of pollutants to forest-ecosystems have been initiated by several interdisciplinary groups. The rapidly increasing interest in the problems of forest decay and the many open questions with respect to the diagnosis of the forest-damage were the background for the organisation of a second symposium which was held in November 1985 at the same location in Oberursel/Taunus. It was mainly concerned with new techniques of sampling and analyzing pollutants in forest areas. Besides deposition, one important pathway of pollutants in orographic terrain is the interception of fog-droplets by vegetation. Special emphasis was laid on the chemical composition of fog. The symposium successfully assembled scientists from the field of atmospheric research with those studying the effect of pollutants on trees and vegetation in order to reduce the many open questions in connection with forest desease. The proceedings presented in this volume are a substantial contribution to the understanding of deposition and interception of pollutants in forest-areas. Thanks to the authors the volume contains a lot of new research ·results and presents therefore a true picture of our present knowledge.

Weather Forecasting for Aeronautics

Weather Forecasting for Aeronautics provides forecasters and pilots wanting to study more about the art and science of predicting weather with the essential aids and methods for making practical application of their knowledge of the fundamentals of the science of meteorology. The publication first underscores the forecast problem, construction of the prognostic pressure chart, and prediction of cyclogenesis. Discussions focus on forecasting information concerning new cyclogenesis, making operational and planning forecasts, cyclogenesis off the east coast of Asia, application of weather forecasts to operational problems, and cyclogenesis in the eastern United States. The text then ponders on forecasting the movement, deepening, and filling of cyclones and movement of anticyclones in North America. The manuscript takes a look at the movement of cold lows at the 500-millibar level and their influence on surface lows, displacement of surface cold fronts, and warm frontal analysis and movement. Topics include movement of warm fronts, identification and location of warm fronts, East Coast wedge type, and warm frontogenesis. The text then examines the movement of tropical cyclones, prediction of very low ceiling and fogs, and prediction of severe weather. The publication is a dependable reference for weather forecasters and pilots.

The Beautiful Unseen: Variations on Fog and Forgetting

A Memoir

Amidst the fog of San Francisco, a debut author reflects on his brother’s life and suicide in this “painful, intimate, and exquisitely written” memoir (Peter Orner). In San Francisco, the summer fog blows inland off the ocean and the landscape changes from moment to moment. Amidst this ever-changing sea of fog, thirty year old Kyle Boelte struggles to remember his brother Kris, who committed suicide in their family’s Denver home when Boelte was just thirteen. In a dual narrative that weaves together climate and personal history, Boelte explores letters, notes, newspaper articles, and his own memory to tell the story of his brother’s short life while also investigating the science behind San Francisco’s omnipresent fog. Boelte’s search takes him from San Francisco Bay circa 1901, when the fog was responsible for routinely sinking steamships, to a cavernous medical library where he studies the grim details of asphyxiation and death by hanging; from the redwood forests where scientists are now learning about the fog’s ability to sustain life, to a beat-up cardboard box containing memories of his long-dead brother. The Beautiful Unseen is a “slim book of startling prose” that “slips between past and present, inner life and outer, seamlessly and beautifully” to tell a story of loss at an early age, the impermanence of memory, the science of fog, and the history of San Francisco (Darin Strauss).

This is a book about practical weather forecasting, and it starts where most other books finish. Weather forecasts give you a lot of information about the weather to come but they often leave out a lot of the detail, and the timing of changes can also be vague. In this book, Dag Pike shows how to translate the basics into practical weather forecasts so that you can work out what it will be like in your area and along your proposed route. Sailors will be able to make better use of the available wind and avoid difficult areas, whilst powerboat drivers more interested in the sea conditions will be able to find the smoothest waters for a better ride. With the help of this book, readers will pick up expert tips such as Predicting the weather at sea from scanty weather forecasts Knowing what conditions to expect when near cliffs, river estuaries and valleys Understanding how the wind affects tides 50 Ways to Improve Your Weather Forecasting distils Dag Pike's experience gained from over 50 years of driving a whole range of craft from high-speed powerboats and lifeboats to ships and sailing boats. Written by one of the most experienced seamen in the world, it is your passport to practical weather forecasting techniques that will get you safely to your destination whether in fine weather or foul.

This is an intriguing and inspiring collection of devotionals based on messages gleaned from signs along the roads we travel. It can be meaningful to adults, fascinating to children, and even helpful to youth learning to drive. Each message is supported by words of wisdom from the ancient Book of Proverbs. If we will just slow down and observe, even something as seemingly mundane as a road sign can convey a powerful lesson. “Mr. Brown, in the future, I would appreciate it if you would pay attention to them (road signs) and act accordingly.” As he handed me the ticket, he said, ‘Have a good day.’” —North Carolina State Trooper “My goodness, Bernie, this is amazing. Never thought of this ... but it is simple and profound. We can see road signs differently after reading your devotionals. The pictures are wonderful, too ... and Proverbs come alive in a new way.” —Lucy Adams, Author and Cofounder of the Western NC Christian Writers Fellowship “Our city, like others, devotes a tremendous amount of resources toward placing directional and informational signs along its streets for guidance and to insure the public’s safety. It is amazing how Bernie Brown has extracted additional meaning from many of these road signs to assist each of us on our individual life’s journey. This fascinating little book will not only inspire you but will assist you in passing your ‘spiritual driver’s license’ test.” —Steve “Thunder” Tumlin, Jr., Mayor, city of Marietta, GA (Bernie’s home since 1971; he was named Marietta Citizen of the Year in 1990)
