Item description for LA Nina and Its Impacts: Facts and Speculation by Michael H. Glantz...

This volume is based on a meeting of researchers, forecasters, and users of La Nina forecasts, at the US National Centre for Atmospheric Research. La Nina results from air-sea interaction that reduces the surface seatemperatures in the central and eastern equatorial Pacific Ocean, affecting global weather patterns. While people around the globe have become familiar with El Nino - a large-scale warming of surface water that expands to cover the tropics - and its impacts, its counterpart, La Nina, is not so well known. Researchers at this La Nina Summit indicated that La Nina events can be as devastating as those of El Nino. The overriding purpose of the summit was to draw attention to the importance of improving understanding of the La Nina phenomenon and what societies need to know in order to prepare for La Nina's impacts. "La Nina and Its Impacts" presents updated summit papers and offers a glimpse of the state of scientific knowledge about cold events and their impacts in developing and industrialized societies.
