Synopsis

This book helps you discover the tumultuous and exciting world of hurricanes, typhoons, and cyclones. The science, history, and culture of tropical cyclones around the globe have evolved considerably since the publication of the award-winning first edition of "Encyclopedia of Hurricanes, Typhoons, and Cyclones" nearly 10 years ago. Improved forecasting techniques, new naming systems, and heightened intensity and duration records are only a few of the changes that have taken the meteorological world by storm in recent years."Encyclopedia of Hurricanes, Typhoons, and Cyclones, New Edition" features significant updates and information on recent weather phenomena and the devastation and loss that often resulted. Hurricanes Andrew, Dean, Felix, Gilbert, and Wilma are covered in detail in this comprehensive resource, as well as the most destructive and deadly tropical cyclone witnessed in the United States in the last 50 years - Hurricane Katrina.

This completely revised edition features more than 70 all-new black-and-white photographs and line illustrations, a revised introduction, historical and cultural entries, extensively revised front and back matter, a bibliography of print and Web resources, a chronology, and an index.
