Description

The Institute for Mathematical Sciences at the National University of Singapore hosted a Spring School on Fluid Dynamics and Geophysics of Environmental Hazards from 19 April to 2 May 2009. This volume contains the content of the nine short lecture courses given at this School, with a focus mainly on tropical cyclones, tsunamis, monsoon flooding and atmospheric pollution, all within the context of climate variability and change.The book provides an introduction to these topics from both mathematical and geophysical points of view, and will be invaluable for graduate students in applied mathematics, geophysics and engineering with an interest in this broad field of study, as well as for seasoned researchers in adjacent fields.

Contents

Elements of Vortex Dynamics and Turbulence (H K Moffatt); Geophysical and Environmental Fluid Mechanics (P Linden & T Y Koh); Extreme Rain and Wind Storms in Mid-Latitudes (G Tetzlaff); Hydro-Meteorological and Environmental Disasters (A W Jayawardena); Tropical Cyclones (K Emanuel); Tsunamis (P Tkalich); Dynamics of the Indian and Pacific Oceans (S Behera); Transport of Pollutants in the Atmosphere (P Haynes); Aspects of Climate Change (E Shuckburgh).
