According to World Resources Institute and Water Risk Atlas, the most exposed to floods is northern part of Bosnia and Herzegovina with high flood occurrence recorded. Cover Layers of desert dust in the accumulated snow on Mt Elbrus, Caucasus Mountains, Russia. The majority of the dust deposited on Mt Elbrus was traced back to the Syrian Desert and northern. Moreover, snow cover maintains spring temperatures around zero at the high elevation sites, most dramatically at m.

    Remote sensing of meteorological parameters helps to provide the initial conditions for numerical weather prediction (NWP). Desired fields include those of temperature, moisture, winds, clouds, and surface properties. For high horizontal resolution and global coverage, satellite data are an unrivaled source of information. The basic form of this information is satellite sensor‐incident.

Snow Cover: present Mean annual northern hemisphere snow cover is million average, million km2 lies over Eurasia and million km2 over North America (including Greenland).In figure 1, the variability of snow cover over the Northern Hemisphere between January and August is expressed through anomalies of individual months and twelve-month running means.

Cells with at least 50% of their surface covered with snow were considered snow covered. All other cells were considered snow free. In this paper we use monthly means of snow cover ex-tent calculated using a routine described fully in Robinson. Prior to Maythe SCE CDR is based on weekly, satellite-derived Northern Hemisphere snow cover extent maps.

These maps were initially produced by trained NOAA meteorologists visually interpretting photographic copies of shortwave imagery, and as time progressed, new sources of imagery as they became available. The form Atlases represents a specific category or genre of resources found in Bates College.

Associations between Continental-Scale snow cover anomalies and air mass frequencies across Eastern North America Article in International Journal of Climatology 22(12) - October The major hypothesis of this study is that continental-scale snow cover anomalies should influence air mass frequencies because of their important effects on land-surface energy budgets.

To test this hypothesis, satellite-derived Northern Hemisphere snow cover data were used in conjunction with a unique air mass classification routine to. The study area is located in Liaoning Province, northeastern China (between 38° 43'N to 43° 2'N and ° 37'E to ° 33' E) (Figure 1), covering an area ofsquare kilomet ers.

Introduction. The annual cycling of water is the largest movement of a chemical substance at the surface of the earth.

Evaporation from the tropics and transport to higher latitudes not only transfers water, but also much of the absorbed heat energy (Schlesinger, ).Besides a major role in the redistribution of the earth's surface energy, water vapor plays a key role in regulating the Cited by: Visit to get more information about this book, to buy it in print, or to download it as a free PDF.

A low frequency record on tropospheric HCFC since the late s is available from measurements of the Southern Hemisphere Cape Grim Air Archive (CGAA) and a few Northern Hemisphere air samples (mostly from Trinidad Head) using the Advanced Global Atmospheric Gases Experiment (AGAGE) instrumentation and calibrations.

Results show that declining cloud cover caused by the weakening of both the South Asian summer monsoon and local-scale atmospheric upward motion mainly led to the accelerated ground surface warming during the summers of –, whereas the decreased surface albedo caused by the snow melting was the major warming factor in winter.

Five years of continuous observations indicate that interannual variation in winter air temperature and snow cover conditions control ground thermal regimes. At sandy aeolian sites, thin snow cover and high thermal conductivity promote rapid freezing, high rates of ground cooling, and low near-surface ground temperatures ( to °C).

The Thermostat Hypothesis is that tropical clouds and thunderstorms actively regulate the temperature of the earth. This keeps the earth at a equilibrium temperature. Several kinds of evidence are presented to establish and elucidate the Thermostat Hypothesis – historical temperature stability of the Earth, theoretical considerations.
