Description:

Aridity prevails over more than one-third of the land area of Earth, and over a significant fraction of the oceans. Until this book, there has been no comprehensive reference volume or textbook that deals with the weather processes of desert areas. Treating all aspects of desert weather, this text/reference will satisfy all who need to know more about the weather and climate of arid lands, especially advanced students and researchers in environmental science, meteorology, physical geography, hydrology, and engineering.
