Dr. Anthony R. Lupo is a Professor of Atmospheric Sciences in the Atmospheric Sciences Program as part of the School of Natural Resources at the University of Missouri. He earned a BS in Meteorology from the State University of New York at Oswego in 1988, and an M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from Purdue University in 1991 and 1995, respectively. His research is in the areas of large-scale atmospheric dynamics, tropical meteorology, climate dynamics, and climate change including modeling, and has several peer-reviewed publications in each of these areas. He is a member of the American Meteorological Society, and the National Weather Association. He was a Fulbright Scholar in Russia during the summer of 2004 at the Russian Academy of Sciences in Moscow, and Belgorod State University in 2014-2015 and 2017.

This book represents recent research on tropical cyclones and their impact, and a wide range of topics are covered. An updated global climatology is presented, including the global occurrence of tropical cyclones and the terrestrial factors that may contribute to the variability and long-term trends in their occurrence. Research also examines long term trends in tropical cyclone occurrences and intensity as related to solar activity, while other research discusses the impact climate change may have on these storms. The dynamics and structure of tropical cyclones are studied, with traditional diagnostics employed to examine these as well as more modern approaches in examining their thermodynamics. The book aptly demonstrates how new research into short-range forecasting of tropical cyclone tracks and intensities using satellite information has led to significant improvements. In looking at societal and ecological risks, and damage assessment, authors investigate the use of technology for anticipating, and later evaluating, the amount of damage that is done to human society, watersheds, and forests by land-falling storms. The economic and ecological vulnerability of coastal regions are also studied and are supported by case studies which examine the potential hazards related to the evacuation of populated areas, including medical facilities. These studies provide decision makers with a potential basis for developing improved evacuation techniques.
