Many climatic extremes around the globe, such as severe droughts and floods, can be attributed to the periodic warming of the equatorial Pacific sea surface, termed the El Niño or Southern Oscillation (ENSO). Advances in our understanding of ENSO, in which Edward Sarachik and Mark Cane have been key participants, have led to marked improvements in our ability to predict its development months or seasons, allowing adaptation to global impacts. The book introduces basic concepts and builds to more detailed theoretical treatments. Chapters on the structure and dynamics of the tropical ocean and atmosphere place ENSO in a broader observational and theoretical context. Chapters on ENSO prediction, past and future, and impacts introduce broader implications of the phenomenon. This book provides an introduction to all aspects of this most important mode of global climate variability, for research workers and students of all levels in climate science, oceanography and related fields.

Piety is often regarded with a pejorative bias: a "pious" person is thought to be overly religious, supercilious even. Yet historically the concept of piety has played an important role in Christian theology and practice. For Abraham Heschel, piety describes the contours of a life compatible with God's presence. While much has been made of Heschel's concept of pathos, relatively little attention has been given to the pivotal role of piety in his thought, with the result that the larger methodological implications of his work for both Jewish and Christian theology have been overlooked. Grounding Heschel's work in Husserl, Dilthey, Schiller and Heidegger, the book explores his phenomenological method of "penetrating the consciousness of the pious person in order to perceive the divine reality behind it." The book goes on to consider the significance of Heschel's methodology in view of the theocentric ethics of Gustafson and Hauerwas and the post-modern context reflected in the works of Levinas, Vattimo, Marion and the Radical Orthodoxy movement.

If you only have 30 seconds, there is time – using this book – to make sense of the science behind the seeming vagaries of the weather, the controversies, predictions and forecasts for climate change that shape our day-to-day experiences of the great outdoors. Ever since Aristotle first tried to explain the forces that seem to fall from the heavens, meteorology has opened up the study of weather, and caused disputes over the reasons why seasons change, where precipitation falls, why winds blow and when the sun shines. From halcyon days to hurricanes, supercells to silver linings, global warming to giant hailstones, here is the ultimate guide to a near-universal preoccupation: what’s the weather like?

This book is designed as an introductory course in Tropical Meteorology for the graduate or advanced level undergraduate student. The material within can be covered in a one-semester course program. The text starts from the global scale-view of the Tropics, addressing the zonally symmetric and asymmetric features of the tropical circulation. It then goes on to progressively smaller spatial and time scales – from the El Niño Southern Oscillation and the Asian Monsoon, down to tropical waves, hurricanes, sea breezes, and tropical squall lines. The emphasis in most chapters is on the observational aspects of the phenomenon in question, the theories regarding its nature and maintenance, and the approaches to its numerical modeling. The concept of scale interactions is also presented as a way of gaining insight into the generation and redistribution of energy for the maintenance of oscillations of a variety of spatial and temporal scales.

A suite of real-time statistical forecast models of the Madden-Julian Oscillation (MJO), a large scale, quasi-periodic phenomenon and the dominant mode of variability in the tropics, is presented along with a novel approach to performing real-time intraseasonal data filtering. The study introduces the new technique of empirical mode decomposition (EMD) in a meteorological-climate forecasting context. It identifies empirical adjustments that can be made to the basic EMD method to produce a band-pass filter that is highly efficient at extracting a broad-band signal such as the Madden-Julian oscillation (MJO) with minimal end effects, such that it is suitable for use in realtime. This process is used to efficiently extract the MJO signal from gridded time series of outgoing longwave radiation (OLR) data. A range of statistical models were then tested for their suitability in forecasting the MJO signal in the OLR data, as isolated by the EMD. These were from the general classes of vector autoregressive moving average (VARMA) and neural network models. The models were developed using 17 years of OLR data from 1980 to 1996. Forecasts (hindcasts) were then made on the remaining independent data from 1998 to 2004. These were made in real-time, as only data up to the date the forecast was made were used. A VARMA (5,1) model was selected and its parameters determined by a maximum likelihood method. The median skill of forecasts was accurate (defined as an anomaly correlation above 0.6) at lead times up to 25 days. Four neural network models were created with a range of degrees of freedom in their forecasts. .These had their parameters determined using back propagation methods in a supervised learning manner. The neural network comparable to the VARMA (5,1) model in terms of forecast resolution also had accurate median forecast skill at lead times of 25 days, while the remaining neural network models had accurate median forecast skill at lead times ranging from 15-25 days but with greater spatial resolution. The statistical MJO forecasts developed here perform significantly better than any current· dynamical models and are at least as skillful as other statistical MJO forecasts. Operational model forecasts are available at http://envam1.env.uea.ac.uk/mjo-forecast.html.

Improving the reliability of long-range forecasts of natural disasters, such as severe weather, droughts and floods, in North America, South America, Africa and the Asian/Australasian monsoon regions is of vital importance to the livelihood of millions of people who are affected by these events. In recent years the significance of major short-term climatic variability, and events such as the El Nino/Southern Oscillation in the Pacific, with its worldwide effect on rainfall patterns, has been all to clearly demonstrated. Understanding and predicting the intra-seasonal variability (ISV) of the ocean and atmosphere is crucial to improving long range environmental forecasts and the reliability of climate change projects through climate models. In the second edition of this classic book on the subject, the authors have updated the original chapters, where appropriate, and added a new chapter that includes short subjects representing substantial new development in ISV research since the publication of the first edition.
