4. “Atmospheric Aerosols Characterization, Chemistry, Modeling and Climate” by Kalliat T Valsaraj and Raghava R Kommalapati

“Atmospheric Aerosols Characterization, Chemistry, Modeling and Climate” Book Review: This book describes the characteristics of atmospheric aerosols, the chemistry of aerosols, and the interplay between aerosol modeling and global climate changes. It is classified into three sections. The first section includes three chapters that talk about the role of morphology on aerosol particle reactivity, the second covers the surface activity of perfluorinated compounds at the air-water interface, atmospheric chemistry of urban surface films, photochemistry of secondary organic aerosol formed from oxidation of monoterpenes, and the third section includes understanding climatic effects of aerosols, modeling radiative effects of aerosols, environmental effects to residential New Orleans following Hurricane Katrina, indoor sediment, vapor-phase, and aerosolized contaminants.

5. “Modeling Dynamic Climate Systems (Modeling Dynamic Systems)” by Walter A Robinson

“Modeling Dynamic Climate Systems (Modeling Dynamic Systems)” Book Review: This book includes the stability of the climate, the earth’s energy balance, parcel dynamics in the atmosphere, the mechanisms of heat transport in the climate system, and mechanisms of climate variability. It explains how the different components of climate systems function, interact with each other, and vary over time.

6. “Modeling Potential Impact of Climate Change in Semi-Arid Areas” by Kirina Kitinya and Kironchi Geoffrey

“Modeling Potential Impact of Climate Change in Semi-Arid Areas” Book Review: This book is produced for agricultural extension workers, students, and researchers in the agricultural field, and policymakers. It discusses the future of agriculture under different climate change scenarios and the contribution to climate change information in ASAL areas. It has used the APSIM crop model to simulate the potential impacts of climate change on crop production, with a focus on arid and semi-arid areas (ASALs) of Kenya.

7. “Statistical Analysis of Climate Series: Analyzing, Plotting, Modeling, and Predicting with R” by Helmut Pruscha

“Statistical Analysis of Climate Series: Analyzing, Plotting, Modeling, and Predicting with R” Book Review: This book is written for statisticians, meteorologists, and other natural scientists. It shows the application of statistical methods to climatological data on temperature and precipitation and it provides specific techniques for treating series of yearly, monthly, and daily records. It has applied models like the ARIMA and GARCH model, and inhomogeneous Poisson methods. The potential relevance in the climate context is discussed in this book. It has dealt with some special statistical topics such as the problem of trend-, season- and autocorrelation-adjustment, and with simultaneous statistical inference.

8. “Modeling of Wheat Growth and Yield Under the Expected Climate Change” by Maze Mona

“Modeling of Wheat Growth and Yield Under the Expected Climate Change” Book Review: This book has developed a new crop simulation model that simulated the crop biomass and yield of winter wheat from collected thermal units and simple partitioning rules under the different water and weather conditions in Bavaria. It has used models like REMO, CLM, and STAR II, for estimating the expected crop behavior and distribution of winter wheat till 2100.

9. “Climate Change Modelling, Planning and Policy for Agriculture” by Anil Kumar Singh and Jagdish Chander Dagar
10. “Monitoring and Modelling Dynamic Environments” by Alan P Dykes and Mark Mulligan

“Monitoring and Modelling Dynamic Environments” Book Review: This book focuses on the integration of different methodologies, the application of this approach to improved understanding of natural systems, and the development of appropriate strategies for environmental and resource management. It reflects Professor John’s interests through the recent work of scientists and professionals. It has short overviews of Professor John’s contributions to geomorphological research to provide meaning for the origins of this book.
