Sea Breeze and Local Winds

The sea breeze affects our lives in many ways. It controls our local weather, not only on the coast but also in many districts inland. Air pollution and smog, also the distribution of airborne insect pests and the spread of pollen are all controlled by the sea breeze. In the world of sport it is important to glider pilots, sailors and surfers, and balloonists. In the book we see how radar, lidar and satellite photography have helped to forecast and map sea breezes and the all-important 'sea-breeze front'. The book ends with a description of laboratory experiments mostly carried out by the author and his co-workers, and a simple summary of theoretical models. The book will be welcomed by those researching in the subject but will also be valuable to the general reader who is interested in local weather and the natural environment.

Surviving in Sea Breezes

A Community Struggles for Survival After the Collapse

The island community of Sea Breezes struggles to survive in the aftermath of a complete Collapse of government, society, and the economy after a massive terrorist attack against the U.S. and the western world. Individual neighbors in Sea Breezes step up and lead the community in their own fields of expertise. A retired army Lieutenant Colonel leads scavenging expeditions out to the island's gang-controlled badlands; a former policewoman keeps discipline within the community; a nurse establishes a medical aid station; and a retired Marine Gunnery Sergeant manages the community's security forces. Other homeowners work in areas necessary for everyone's survival: hunting, fishing, and gardening. But it simply is not enough. Reduced to living by their own wits, they desperately wait for help from a small army force that landed at the airport in nearby Port Monroe, Florida. But it becomes evident that the rescue of civilians is not part of the army's mission. And what is the fledgling U.S. government's plan for recovery? Who will be sacrificed? Getting enough food, and maintaining their security against vicious gangs and roaming outlaws, become increasingly difficult as their enemies also become increasingly desperate. Time is running out for everyone on the island, and only the fittest will survive. How much longer can the 200 or so men, women, and children of Sea Breezes last? This is the conclusion of the Sea Breezes two-book set.

Seabreezes are the lifeblood of cruising and racing sailors - but they are a fickle resource and it's vital to be able to predict and read the situations when they will blow strongly, change direction (annoyingly) or vanish altogether. This is a highly practical handbook from Alan Watts, the renowned meteorology author, on a subject only lightly touched upon in other books. Here he helps seafarers of all types (dinghy sailors, yacht racers, big boat cruisers, etc) to capitalise on when the seabreeze will occur and from what direction. He will explain the relevance of: - Time of day - Sea/land temperature - Local topography (bays, cliffs, headlands, etc) - Pressure systems and their effect on the arrival and duration of seabreezes Illustrated with photos, wind charts, box-outs, checklists, and tips and hints, this is the book that will help sailors to use the wind efficiently, whether to cruise or race successfully.

Defending Sea Breezes

When the Collapse Comes, What If Your Family Doesn't Have a Bunker in the Woods to Escape To?

*Revised edition with larger font in print version. An average American middle class community is faced with a sudden and complete breakdown of the U.S. economy, government, and society after a massive, nation-wide Islamic terrorist attack. Like the vast majority of Americans, none of the residents of Sea Breezes have a convenient bunker in the woods or a compound of survivalist friends to escape to. They have to find some way to organize themselves in order to survive with what they have on hand, and what they can obtain by using their own wits and determination. Retired Army Lieutenant Colonel Richard Cantrell and his brother-in-law, former Marine Gunnery Sergeant Josh Koenig, residents of the Florida community, volunteer to help, and what follows is the riveting and often heart-breaking account of a community coming to grips with the unthinkable. "Defending Sea Breezes" is a complex story that weaves together international Islamic terrorism, government foreign policy failures, and the indomitable American spirit, to portray one of the most realistic and compelling "what if" stories of survival, all in one complete, stand-alone novel. Unlike similar novels, this story gives a realistic, even probable, military and political background for the Collapse. Advisories: If you believe that America's foreign policy over the last 7 years has been correct, you will probably not enjoy this book. Because this novel contains contemporary dialogue, it contains some profanity.

The vulnerability of water resources due to climate change and human activities is globally increasing. The phenomenon of hydrological change is complicated because of the combinations and interactions between natural climate fluctuation, global warming and human activities including changes in land utilization. The impact areas of hydrological changes are also not only within the basin, but reach to the ocean through coastal water exchanges. This book presents contributions focused on integrated water management from headwater to the ocean in a time of climate change and increasing population.

The Biology of Life on the Move

Migration, broadly defined as directional movement to take advantage of spatially distributed resources, is a dramatic behaviour and an important component of many life histories that can contribute to the fundamental structuring of ecosystems. In recent years, our understanding of migration has advanced radically with respect to both new data and conceptual understanding. It is now almost twenty years since publication of the first edition, and an authoritative and up-to-date sequel that provides a taxonomically comprehensive overview of the latest research is therefore timely. The emphasis throughout this advanced textbook is on the definition and description of migratory behaviour, its ecological outcomes for individuals, populations, and communities, and how these outcomes lead to natural selection acting on the behaviour to cause its evolution. It takes a truly integrative approach, showing how comparisons across a diversity of organisms and biological disciplines can illuminate migratory life cycles, their evolution, and the relation of migration to other movements. Migration: The Biology of Life on the Move focuses on migration as a behavioural phenomenon with important ecological consequences for organisms as diverse as aphids, butterflies, birds and whales. It is suitable for senior undergraduate and graduate level students taking courses in behaviour, spatial ecology, 'movement ecology', and conservation. It will also be of interest and use to a broader audience of professional ecologists and behaviourists seeking an authoritative overview of this rapidly expanding field.
