A comprehensive review of the interactions between climates of different ocean basins and how they contribute to global climate variability.
Carlos R. Mechoso is Distinguished Professor Emeritus at the Department of Atmospheric and Ocean Sciences, University of California, Los Angeles, and is currently Profesor Honorífico at the University Complutense, Madrid. He is author of more than 200 scientific publications, including pioneering contributions on numerical modeling of the coupled atmosphere-ocean system. Much of his research has focused on the El Niño/Southern Oscillation and its impacts. He has chaired international research programs on different aspects of the climate of the Americas, and is a fellow of the American and Royal Meteorological Societies. For this book, he assembled an international team of researchers working on a major topic of current scientific and societal interest.
'… researchers of climate variability pertaining to any part of the globe will find this book, organized by Mechoso (Univ. of California, Los Angeles) as a collection of review articles with voluminous references at the end of each chapter, well suited to facilitate a deep dive into topics of interest.
