Our understanding of climate and its role in human affairs has changed markedly over recent years, as have climate observation systems and modelling capabilities. Reliance on recent weather statistics to provide a guide for future climate is no longer viable. Evidence of human-induced climate change has placed climate high on political and the media agendas. Climates of the British Isles provides a comprehensive account of what we know about climate and changing climates at the end of the twentieth century. Integrating the historical and geographical dimensions of climate, the crucial link between past and future climatic conditions is examined through the geographical lens of the British Isles. Climates of past ages are reconstructed and full descriptions of present climate are illustrated by a wealth of graphs, maps and images. Important climate data sets are provided. Marking the twenty-fifth anniversary of the internationally acclaimed Climatic Research Unit, this book distils much of the leading research of present and recent members of the unit and presents an authoritative, accessible view of climatic change and prospects for the next millenium and beyond.

Global climate and the effects of global warming are commanding unprecendented interest as climates grow more dynamic and changeable. How does global warming change patterns of climate? Why is the weather and climate of the British Isles so variable? Regional Climates of the British Isles presents a comprehensive and up-to-date survey of the diverse climate of the British Isles. Examining the ways in which regional climates evolve from the interplay of meteorological conditions and geography of the British Isles, leading climatologists provide detailed explanations of the climatic characteristics of eleven regions of the British Isles. Climatic distinctiveness and local weather contrasts are described for each region, together with a summary of climatic data from 1961 to the present. Reviewing the history and causes of climatic change and evaluating regional models, Regional Climates of the British Isles offers an important analysis of climatic variations. Examining future climatic change and its likely consequences, the authors acknowledge the need for regionally diverse responses to the greenhouse effect.

Excerpt from Practical Exercises on the Weather and Climate of the British Isles and North-West Europe The value of practical work in Geography is now so widely recognised that in all schools where the subject is efficiently taught practical work in all branches of the science that deals with the earth as the home of man forms no inconsiderable part of the syllabus. A glance at the Geography Papers set in Public Examinations (e.g. Oxford and Cambridge Locals) within the last few years brings out the fact that more and more emphasis is being laid on practical work in connection with climate in general and weather in particular. Materials for exercises on the weather of the British Isles and North-west Europe are not perhaps readily accessible to most teachers and hence the writer feels that the following exercises may help to supply that want. The chief aim of the present book is to present in as simple a manner as possible a series of exercises which bring out the main principles in that complicated subject - British Weather. The basis of the whole work is the actual construction of weather maps and these are indispensable to an appreciation of our weather. All the data have been taken directly from the Daily Weather Reports published by the Meteorological Office.

British Isles Weather & Climate allows the reader to develop a true understanding of the essential elements of meteorology. Throughout the book there are 'British Isles' sections detailing how specific weather elements affect the islands as a whole and more specific regions to make the science more relevant. Using this book as a vehicle to study the elements that drive the weather of our islands readers can, if they wish, take their studies to a higher level or perhaps look at weather as it relates to a range of activities including water sports, aviation, climbing and walking. The book begins in Chapter One with a discussion of some of the major properties of the atmosphere. This sets the foundation for our study because it is the physical and chemical properties of the atmosphere that determine how the various elements of weather evolve, develop and interact to produce the day to day conditions with which we are so familiar. Although it is beyond the scope of this book it is impossible to understand the winter-spring drought of 2012 and the subsequent cool, wet and windy weather without some appreciation of the characteristics of the atmosphere. In this opening chapter, there is particular emphasis on solar radiation and the resulting energy transfers across the surface. These are central to the study of meteorology because they drive the global air and ocean currents that are a key element in the climate and weather of the British Isles. The next chapter is a detailed examination of the moisture content of the atmosphere and how that varies spatially and temporally to produce a number of different phenomena. That leads to Chapter Three with an explanation of cloud formation and a description of the major cloud types followed by a brief look at fog in the next chapter. This part of the book ends with a thorough explanation of how and why pressure varies across the surface of the Earth and how that produces the wind regime of the British Isles. This includes a brief look at local winds such as those found along coasts and in highland areas. The first part of the book establishes the theoretical background to the elements affecting the weather of the British Isles. Part B builds on this to show how weather systems develop on the atmospheric stage and affect the weather of these islands. Probably the most significant of these systems are the mid-latitude depressions that regularly cross the British Isles bringing wind, cloud and rain. The origin and development of these is considered in Chapter Seven and the resulting weather described at length in Chapter Eight. The following chapter looks at the generation of thunderstorms and their associated weather dominated by thunder, lighting and squally showers. Air masses and their weather are described at length in Chapter Ten. Although these are clearly not 'systems' they are included here because different air masses with their varied source regions and tracks play a significant part in the formation of depressions. They are also a key factor in the weather associated with a particular depression and indeed the weather of other systems such as non-frontal lows, troughs, anticyclones and ridges. Part B is completed by a study of anticyclones, which although usually associated with quieter weather than that brought by depressions are nonetheless an important feature of the weather of these islands. The final part of the book draws together the different elements studied and demonstrates how they can be used in what we might call DIY forecasting. Chapter Twelve shows the reader how to interpret weather charts with twenty different synoptic situations discussed in detail. Chapter Thirteen shows how we can observe visual signs in the sky to predict local weather more effectively. The final two chapters look at the making of commercial forecasts and how they are presented through various media.

Excerpt from A Human Geography of the British Isles Climate. The average conditions of wind, rainfall, dampness, and temperature. Weather. The actual conditions of temperature, wind, and rainfall experienced. The general conditions affecting the climate of a region are (1) its latitude, (2) its nearness to the sea, (3) the ocean currents which wash its shores, (4) the winds which cross it, (5) the position of its mountains, (6) the height of the region above sea-level, and (7) the nature and slope of its surface. (I.) Latitude. - Generally speaking, the nearer one gets to the poles the colder the temperature becomes. The reasons for this are that nearer the poles: (a) The sun's rays strike the earth obliquely, and have to heat and light a much greater area than is the case with the rays reaching the earth near the equator. (b) To a much less extent the sun's rays have to pass through a thicker layer of air, and consequently lose more heat before reaching the earth, than is the case at the equator.
