Florida is home to two of the world's major types of climate--tropical wet-dry and humid subtropical. It ranks among the top states for tornadoes and is more frequently affected by lightning and thunderstorms than any other state. Florida is vulnerable to fog, drought, and wildfires. And it is notorious for its most prominent natural event--the hurricane. This book explores the conditions, forces, and processes behind Florida's surprisingly varied and dynamic weather. The authors discuss Florida's location, landscape, and population, as well as the position of the sun and the importance of evaporation and condensation. They explain the influence of atmospheric circulation patterns such as the Hadley Cell, the Coriolis force, and the Bermuda-Azores High. They also describe the qualities of cold, warm, stationary, and occluded fronts and how they generate precipitation and freezes. In addition to revealing why severe weather systems and phenomena like hail and lightning occur, the book also reviews the procedures in place to track and measure these events and warn citizens in danger. Major weather incidents from Florida's history are narrated, including often overlooked accidents caused by smoke and fog. After showing how climate has changed in the past, the authors look ahead to what further climate change would mean for the future. With many maps, helpful diagrams, and clear explanations, this book is an illuminating and accessible guide to Florida's dramatic weather and climate.

Climate is a dominant factor driving the physical and ecologic processes affecting the South Florida / Caribbean Inventory and Monitoring Network (SFCN). This project was initiated to inventory past and present climate monitoring efforts in the SFCN. In this report, the authors provide the following information: • Overview of broad-scale climatic factors and zones important to SFCN park units; • Inventory of weather and climate station locations in and near SFCN park units relevant to the NPS I&M Program; • Results of an inventory of metadata on each weather station, including affiliations for weather-monitoring networks, types of measurements recorded at these stations, and information about the actual measurements (length of record, etc.); and • Initial evaluation of the adequacy of coverage for existing weather stations and recommendations for improvements in monitoring weather and climate.

This edited volume is a compilation of the ‘built environment’ in response to many investigations, analyses and sometimes mere observations of the various dialogues and interactions of the built, in context to its ecology, perception and design. The chapters concentrate on various independent issues, integrated as a holistic approach, both in terms of theoretical perspectives and practical approaches, predominantly focusing on the Global South. The book builds fabric knitting into the generic understanding of environment, perception and design encompassing ‘different’ attitudes and inspirations. This book is an important reference to topics concerning urbanism, urban developments and physical growth, and highlights new methodologies and practices. The book presumes an understanding unearthed from various dimensions and again woven back to a common theme, which emerges as the reader reads through. Various international experts of the respective fields working on the Global South contributed their latest research and insights to the different parts of the book. This trans-disciplinary volume appeals to scientists, students and professionals in the fields of architecture, geography, planning, environmental sciences and many more.

This concise volume is written at a level accessible to all readers, including beginning students in meteorology and climatology courses. It explains the concepts without employing high levels of mathematical calculations or scientific discourse. It also addresses the effects that climate change is likely to have on Louisiana with examples related to rising sea levels, increased frequency and severity of storms, and much more. The text goes on to outline how these weather phenomena will affect the flora, fauna, and human population of the region.
