Global Physical Climatology, Second Edition, provides an introduction to the science of climate and climate change that spans the atmosphere, ocean, and land surface, and the interactions among them. It begins with a basic introduction to the climate system, and then introduces the physics of the climate system, including the principles and processes that determine the structure and climate of the atmosphere, ocean, and land surface. More advanced topics apply the basic knowledge introduced to understanding natural variability of the climate in both the present and past, the sensitivity of climate to external forcing, explanations for the ice ages, and the science of human-induced climate change. The physical principles and computer models necessary for understanding past climate and predicting future climate are also discussed. This book is recommended for upper division undergraduates and graduates in meteorology, atmospheric science, oceanography, and other environmental fields. It is also suitable for students with a background of at least one year of college physics and calculus as well as researchers in academia, government (military, NOAA, NWS), and policymakers.

Climate change and land-use are typically seen as independent environmental research problems. The causes of climate change are the venue of atmospheric scientists who describe climate change in light of various forcings: greenhouse gases, volcanic eruptions, and oceanic circulation. Land-use is the venue of ecologists, who are concerned with how, for example, deforestation affects biodiversity and biogeochemical cycles. This book integrates these two lines of study to present the idea that how people use land and alter the natural vegetation cover is also a significant feedback within the climate system.

Volume V/4 of the New Series covers the field of meteorology as the physics of the atmosphere in several subvolumes. The first, V/4a "Thermodynamical and dynamical structures of the global atmosphere", appeared in 1986. It was followed by subvolume V/4b dealing with the physical and chemical data of the atmosphere. Subvolume V/4c, which appears in two parts, is concerned with the physical and meteorological aspects of climate. During the last decade, questions related to climate have met with an increased interest, since anthropogenic climate modifications on time-scales of 100 years are now considered conceivable. The first part of this subvolume, i.e. V/4c1 (1987) contains contributions on climate definition, specific surfaces climates, climate variations, and the planetary boundary layer. The second part, V/4c2, presented here, consists of two chapters: "Climate modeling" and "The present global surface climate". The contribution on "Climate modeling" attempts to explain the structure and physical basis of mathematical models which nowadays play a leading role in the discussion of climate, since they appear most appropriate to improve our understanding of the mechanisms of climate and to forecast possible changes. The chapter "The present global surface climate" contains a representative selection of observed climate elements and phenomena near the ground.

Five-day mean and daily meteorological data observed since 1949 are analyzed empirically in order to derive useful climatological and forecasting relationships between surface weather elements and the circulation pattern. The synoptic climatology of 5-day precipitation, surface temperature, 700-1000-mb. thickness, and sea level pressure is investigated by constructing fields of simple linear correlation between these elements and the simultaneous anomaly of 700-mb. height over North American and adjacent oceans. The relation of precipitation and temperature to the field of sea level pressure is studied in a similar fashion. On the basis of the analogy are drawn concerning the association between each weather element and other meteorological factors. Schematic models are then constructed showing preferred portions of the circulation pattern at 700-mb. and sea level for opposite extremes of weather in different parts of the United States.
