2e hands

Artikelomschrijving

The oceans exert a vital moderating influence on the Earths climate system. They provide inertia to the global climate, essentially acting as the pacemaker of climate variability and change, and they provide heat to high latitudes, keeping them habitable. Climate and the Oceans offers a short, self-contained introduction to the subject. This illustrated primer begins by briefly describing the worlds climate system and ocean circulation and goes on to explain the important ways that the oceans influence climate. Topics covered include the oceans effects on the seasons, heat transport between equator and pole, climate variability, and global warming. The book also features a glossary of terms, suggestions for further reading, and easy-to-follow mathematical treatments. Climate and the Oceans is the first place to turn to get the essential facts about this crucial aspect of the Earths climate system. Ideal for students and nonspecialists alike, this primer offers the most concise and up-to-date overview of the subject available.
