New books view storms, the stratosphere, and more

1999-39 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: November 18, 1999 Views of Storms, the Aral Sea, and the Stratosphere Await Readers of New Books on Atmospheric Science

BOULDER--A global perspective on storms, a glimpse into creeping degradation of the Aral Sea, and a portrait of the stratosphere await readers of recent books by scientists at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR). For specialists, recent works examine atmospheric chemistry and global change and explain the newest statistical methods in atmospheric science. NCAR's primary sponsor is the National Science Foundation.

This roundup of recent publications lists NCAR contributors in boldface.

For both scientific and general audiences

Hurricanes: Their Nature and Impacts on Society, by Roger A. Pielke, Jr., and Roger Pielke, Sr. John Wiley & Sons, 1998, 298 pp., ISBN: 0-471-97354-8.

The book defines and assesses the hurricane problem, focusing primarily on the United States, in order to lay a foundation for action. The authors address both the scientific and societal aspects of hurricanes. Although the book focuses on the United States, it illustrates weather- related impact assessments that could be applied in other areas and to phenomena other than hurricanes. More broadly, this book seeks to illustrate the beneficial uses (as well as limitations) of hurricane science to society. In an era when scientific research is under public and political pressure to demonstrate practical connection to societal needs, explicit consideration of the relationship between science and society is vital.

Roger A. Pielke, Jr., is a political scientist in the Environmental and Societal Impacts Group at NCAR. Roger Pielke, Sr., is a professor in the Department of Atmospheric Science, Colorado State University, and is Colorado's state climatologist.
