Description

Louisiana Weather and Climate details the how and the who of annual and seasonal weather episodes seen in the state of Louisiana, including tropical depressions, tropical storms, hurricanes, severe thunderstorms, lightning, heavy rainfall, flooding, tornadoes, and economically devastating freezes. The frequency and variety of severe and extreme weather is higher than in most other regions of the country, making it exciting reading not only for students, but also for the general reader interested in weather and climate. This concise volume is written at a level accessible to all readers, including beginning students in meteorology and climatology courses. It explains the concepts without employing high levels of mathematical calculations or scientific discourse. It also addresses the effects that climate change is likely to have on Louisiana with examples related to rising sea levels, increased frequency and severity of storms, and much more. The text goes on to outline how these weather phenomena will affect the flora, fauna, and human population of the region.
