Everyone's ancestors have different stories that were passed down from generation to generation. Most people do not realize how their ancestors had stories to be past down from generation to generation simply because these stories were never told to them. Families today really don't know about their family history and where they came from.
Based largely on an International Commission on Dynamical Meteorology (ICDM) workshop, this timely volume, written by leading researchers in the field, covers a range of important research issues related to high-impact weather and extreme climate events. Dynamical linkages between these extremes and various atmospheric and ocean phenomena are examined, including Atlantic Multidecadal, North Atlantic, and Madden-Julian Oscillations; Annular Modes; tropical cyclones; and Asian monsoons. This book also examines the predictability of high-impact weather and extreme climate events on multiple time scales. Highlighting recent research and new advances in the field, this book enhances understanding of dynamical and physical processes associated with these events to help managers and policy makers make informed decisions to manage risk and prevent or mitigate disasters. It also provides guidance on future research directions in atmospheric science, meteorology, climate science, and weather forecasting, for experts and young scientists.
The author--John B. Moullette--was a vocational and industrial educator for more than 40 years, domestically and internationally. In this account of his professional writings and events over more than forty years, he provides a 'paper trail' of ideas,efforts and arguments that were required to maintain, promote, and expand 'work force education and training' in an industrial and professional society. He opines the same efforts are required today to sustain 'work force education and training' in order to develop and expand the talents and innovations of the American society for the future. This synopsis details his involvement over 40 years of teaching in and promoting,establishing and operating training programs to prepare persons of all genders and ages to succeed in the 'world of work.'
