about

Tropical Extremes: Natural Variability and Trends: Observations, Modeling, and Theoretical Expectationsfeatures the most up-to-date information on present and future trends related to climate change and tropical extremes. Including contributions from the foremost experts in the field, this important reference addresses the science behind climate change and natural variability in relation to tropical extremes. The book also includes practical insight into modeling and observation approaches. This is an essential reference for researchers, modelers and students in the fields of climate and atmospheric science looking to better understand the causes and effects of tropical extremes and natural variability.

In a warming world, the increase of weather extremes presents a scientifically complex and societally relevant challenge. The book confronts these challenges with observational evidence, modeling studies, theoretical expectations and expected impacts. Opening with a discussion of theoretical principles, the book then moves on to analyze observations and models, leading finally to recommendations for mitigation and adaptation.



  • Illuminates the role of natural variability and climate change in determining the fate and state of tropical extremes
  • Offers a robust guide for analysis relating to the impacts of extremes, thus providing a potential roadmap for navigating the future of risk analysis and the water-food-energy nexus
  • Edited by a diverse team of global experts
  • Includes contributions from leading researchers in the field, comprising the most up-to-date understanding of tropical extremes
