Edited by Jim Norwine, John R. Giardino, Gerald R. North, and Juan B.
Valde's. Published by our imprint, GeoBooks at the College of
Geosciences and Maritime Studies, TAMU.
"This book is an examination of Texas climate. It studies the weather
patterns of the Lone Star State as they have occurred over past years,
and it seeks to predict future climatic conditions as they may happen in
50 to 500 years, incorporating factors such as planetary surface
warming, regional population density, and water demand. Further, the
book predicts what these future changes will mean to the human and
natural systems of the state. The studies collected in this volume grew
out of a conference held at Texas A&M University in 1993 and were
written by leading geographers, meteorologists, engineers,
geomorphologists, agricultural economists, oceanographers, urban
planners, political scientists, and wildlife scientists."
