Judging Extreme Weather

Climate Science in Action

«

"Professor Cerveny is known as the authoritative source for confirming the extreme weather - climate records. In this book, he provides compelling behind-the-process insights and jaw-dropping facts about some of the world's most extreme weather."

Marshall Shepherd is the past president of the American Meteorological Society, Fellow of the US National Academy of Sciences and National Academy of Engineering, and a well-known TV personality with Forbes Magazine and the Weather Channel

"Professor Cerveny leads as the world’s go-to source for the real story on weather extremes. Here, he gives a fascinating behind-the-scenes look at this important science."

Richard Alley is a named Professor of Geosciences at Penn State University and a member of the US National Academy of Sciences and the Royal Society. He is the author of an award-winning book on climate change and ice cores, The Two-Mile Time Machine

"Judging Extreme Weather: Climate Science in Action is entertaining, informative, and authoritative. Professor Cerveny discusses subjects that are very important today and will become even more important in the future."

Elbert (Joe) Friday is a former Director of the US Weather Service, a retired US Air Force Colonel and a past president of the American Meteorological Society, and a US Permanent Representative to the WMO

"Everyone has a weather story, but as the ‘world custodian of extreme weather records,’ professor Cerveny has THE quintessential compilation of wild weather stories. Not only are they fascinating, but by delving into the science of extreme weather, he helps to shed light on the differences between climate and weather… A distinction that is of critical importance for us to understand as we continue to navigate the uncharted waters of the increasing climate crisis. From changes in wildfire and hurricane patterns to extreme heat waves, our planet is undoubtedly changing right before our eyes. Professor Cerveny takes us on a wild ride, investigating the science behind the world’s most extreme weather records in a way that’s understandable, shocking, and even, dare I say, humorous at times."

George Kourounis, Storm Chaser & Royal Canadian Geographical Society Explorer-In-Residence

"Professor Cerveny’s new book, following the erstwhile TV detective Joe Friday, gives ‘just the facts, ma’am!’ on worldwide extreme weather. In an entertaining fashion, he draws the reader into climate science by including the interesting ‘back stories’ of major atmospheric scientists. Fundamentally, this book runs the gauntlet of extreme weather episodes, and will be a major climate resource for years to come."

Joe Golden is a retired Senior Meteorologist at the NOAA Forecast Systems Laboratory in Boulder, Colorado, USA, and is recognized as one of the top international experts on tornadoes and waterspouts
