From blue skies to raging hurricanes, from ice storms to droughts, North Carolina's weather varies widely from season to season and from day to day. In this delightful and informative book, Peter Robinson provides a layperson's guide to the state's weather and climate and an introduction to the science that describes it. What is North Carolina's "typical" weather? How does it vary from the coast to the mountains? How do we forecast it? With dozens of color maps and tables to make understanding easier, Robinson covers big issues such as the role of weather and climate in daily life, severe weather threats and their causes, and the meteorological effects of seasons. He also explains more specific phenomena including the causes of heating and cooling, the effects of acid rain, and the role of groundwater in weather. Robinson addresses the state's weather history as well as long-term concerns associated with how air pollution affects weather and our health, and he explores why issues of local and global climate change matter. Throughout, he discusses weather in ways that can inform daily life, whether you're planting a garden, building a climate-friendly and energy-efficient home, or choosing a time and place for vacation.

Visualizing Weather and Climate Change will capture the reader's interest in weather and climate and then use that interest to engage them in activities that demonstrate the science that serves as the basis of the discipline. Sections such as Eye on the Atmosphere use beautiful imagery to help them see the atmosphere through the eyes of a meteorologist and ask scientific questions that place significant features in atmospheric context. It also includes expanded coverage of global change and recent phenomena. Chapter summaries, self-tests and critical thinking questions help prepare readers for quizzes and tests while the illustrated case studies offer a wide variety of in-depth examinations that address important issues in the field of environmental science.

Wine is a product of a specific region's climate and environment. Climate change is a source of increasing sensitivity. This research analyzes the perceptions of winegrape growers and climate trends, which contribute to a better understanding of climate change impacts on winegrape production and adaptation strategies. Results are compiled from 12 winegrower interviews and 34 web survey responses to questions on crop sensitivity to potential changes in climate as well as current experiences and adaptations to perceived changes to discover how climate change is affecting this sector of agriculture within North Carolina's distinct climate environments. Web survey and interview responses specify weather and climate as a very strong element of risk. Excessive rainfall, hail, severe weather and late spring frosts are among the greatest threats varying between regions and variety. Almost all respondents indicate experiencing a change in extreme high temperatures. The majority of respondents who indicated any concern for future climate change explained preparations are in place because there is no control over the weather, only adaptation. Climate patterns and trends are analyzed for the period 1982-2012, showing the southern mountain region is experiencing a slight increase in August mean maximum temperatures. Temperature trend lines suggest that the central region of the state is experiencing an overall increase in January mean minimum temperature. Boundaries suitable for specific varieties have changed as increasing temperatures expand zones of disease risk.
