This work fills an important gap in the geophysical literature as specialist level. It is the only up to date title providing the link between the Earth s rotation and its atmo– and hydrosphere including the ice masses. But only with a full picture including rotation phenomena a sound understanding of the highly complicated and interlinked processes governing out ecosphere can be achieved, which is important especially for the protection of our climate.
Our ecosphere is governed by a highly complicated system of several processes. They involve the tides, the ice masses, the atmosphere s circulation schemes in the troposphere, stratospheric winds, and many more. They cannot be fully understood without considering their relationship with the Earth s rotation and its irregularities. This book puts all these processes into context.
