Global Warming and Energy Demand

I got here to this booklet through happenstance: an intensive research i used to be doing on Price/Demand Elasticity for electrical energy used to be going nowhere. no longer being a expert statistician, econometrician or economist myself, I lacked the technical instruments to appreciate the place the matter lied. additional, i could not locate the study assisting my assumptions as to what used to be going incorrect.

Climates and Societies — A Climatological Perspective: A Contribution on Global Change and Related Problems Prepared by the Commission on Climatology of the International Geographical Union

The effect of weather on human actions and the impact of people on cli­ mate are of an important components of inquiry in climatology. those interactions carried out via actual, chemical and organic strategy­ es have been defined as early as Roman and Greek instances. Marcus Vitruvius (75-25 B.

As we know, climate radar got here into lifestyles throughout the moment global warfare while plane detection radars had their imaginative and prescient restricted by way of echoes from rain bearing clouds. What used to be usually thought of to be of nuisance worth by way of the air strength team of workers attempting to find enemy plane was once noticeable as a chance by means of the elements males.

Ecological Liberation Theology: Faith-Based Approaches to Poverty and Climate Change in the Philippines

Weather change-related results and aftermaths of normal failures, akin to storm Haiyan within the Philippines, have wreaked havoc on neighborhood peoples’ lives and livelihoods, specially in impoverished coastal groups. This publication appears at local-level responses to the consequences of weather switch from the point of view of ecological theology and feminism, which supplies a solution-based and gender-equitable method of a few of the difficulties of weather switch.

Sample text

As illustrated in Fig. 2 even small cumuli that produce precipitation that evaporates in the sub-cloud layer can form a cold pool. The chilled air is denser than surrounding air and spreads out beneath the cloud where it can lift the surrounding air sometimes enough to generate new cloud cells. In some cases neighboring precipitating clouds can produce cool outflows that run into each other and cause lifting of the air leading to the merger of the neighboring clouds (Fig. 3). The merged cloud cell is often wider and deeper than the parent clouds and is more likely to produce rain.

Huffman and Vali 1973; Huffman 1973a,b) could not reproduce Fletcher’s N-T empirical relationship. Measurements in a variety of field campaigns using a continuous flow diffusion chamber exhibited considerable variability in IN concentration (Rogers et al. 1998; Rogers et al. 2001; DeMott et al. 2003a, Prenni et al. 2007). The variability in ice nuclei concentration is likely not a simple function of temperature but also depends on thermodynamical, dynamical and aerosol characteristics (DeMott et al.

Enhanced ice nucleation in the presence of spuriously high supersaturations. (Hobbs and Rangno 1985).  Secondary ice particle generation during evaporation of ice particles (Oraltay and Hallett 1989; Dong et al. 1994). The process that has been given the most attention and quantified in models is secondary ice particle formation by the rime-splinter process. Laboratory studies by Hallett and Mossop (1974) and Mossop and Hallett (1974), confirmed by Goldsmith et al. (1976), have indicated that copious quantities of splinters are produced during ice particle riming under very selective conditions.
