Biometeorology for Adaptation to Climate Variability and by Kristie L. Ebi,Ian Burton,Glenn McGregor

By Kristie L. Ebi,Ian Burton,Glenn McGregor

Biometeorology keeps to develop as a self-discipline. it really is more and more recognized for its value in delivering technology of relevance to society and health of our environment. This publication is the 1st in a brand new e-book sequence on Biometeorology. the aim of the hot sequence is to speak the interdisciplinary philosophy and technology of biometeorology to as huge an viewers as attainable, introduce scientists and coverage makers to the societal relevance of and up to date advancements in its s- fields and exhibit how a biometeorological technique promises insights to the knowledge and attainable answer of cross-cutting environmental concerns. One such cross-cutting environmental factor is weather swap. whereas the literature at the technology of weather switch, weather switch mitigation and the affects of weather switch is voluminous, that on model to weather swap is meagre compared. the aim of this ebook is to partially redress this imbalance via supplying insights from a biometeorological standpoint. The publication recognizes that society has a protracted heritage of adapting to the affects linked to climatic variability and alter yet makes the purpose that weather switch poses a true hazard to already strained coping structures. hence there's a have to realign human use platforms with altering weather conditions.
