The author supplies regional case studies of selected mountain climates and includes new material on mountains in central Asia, Tibet, Greenland, Antarctica, the Andes, New Zealand, the Alps, and equatorial East Africa. There is a chapter examining human bioclimatology, weather hazards, and air pollution, and a concluding chapter on the evidence for and the significance of changes in mountain climates. This book is ideal for graduates and researchers in meteorology, climatology, ecology, forestry, glaciology, and hydrology.
