Coupled climate system models are of central importance for climate studies. A new model known as FGOALS ( the Flexible Global Ocean-Atmosphere-Land System model), has been developed by the Sate Key Laboratory of Numerical Modeling for Atmospheric Sciences and Geophysical Fluid Dynamics, Institute of Atmospheric Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences (LASG/IAP, CAS), a first-tier national geophysical laboratory. It serves as a powerful tool, both for deepening our understanding of fundamental mechanisms of the climate system and for making decadal prediction and scenario projections of future climate change. "Flexible Global Ocean-Atmosphere-Land System Model: A Modeling Tool for the Climate Change Research Community is the first book to offer systematic evaluations of this model s performance. It is comprehensive in scope, covering both developmental and application-oriented aspects of this climate system model. It also provides an outlook of future development of FGOALS and offers an overview of how to employ the model. It represents a valuable reference work for researchers and professionals working within the related areas of climate variability and change. Prof. Tianjun Zhou, Yongqiang Yu, Yimin Liu and Bin Wang work at LASG, the Institute of Atmospheric Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences, China."
How can you become free from everyday stress and persistent worry? Put away the mobile phone, log off your computer, and turn off the TV. Instead pick up your Ocean Dreaming colouring book and lets get started on the path to relaxation and rejuvenation. Colouring allows your mind to focus on a task that is enjoyable, it invites stillness and encourages switching off from daily stress. Because colouring requires focus, it is a very meditative and mindful process.
In this book there are 50 illustrations inspired by the Ocean. As you focus on the action of colouring, you will find stress disappearing and your mind becomes clearer, allowing relaxation and rejuvenation to become part of your everyday life.
This topical book examines ocean governance and calls for close co-operation between science and policy. Adalberto Vallega uniquely considers the ocean as a spatial complex system which must be represented as a whole and argues that scientific approaches must change to achieve progress and co-operation between science and policy.
