The book examines potentially important factors that may have affected the Hadley and Walker Circulations and evaluates changes in the Hadley Circulation and the monsoons as simulated by coupled models of past climate conditions, and predicted future conditions under an enhanced greenhouse effect. This book is meant to serve as a fundamental reference work for current and future researchers, graduate students in the atmospheric sciences and geosciences, and climate specialists involved in interdisciplinary research.

From the reviews:
"This book aims to address the nature and causes of variation in the Hadley circulation ... . The great strength of this book lies in the combination of its three parts. It succeeds in combining 17 contributions from authoritative climatologists, palaeoclimatologists and modellers into a coherent volume. ... Overall, this is a superb book, which should be on all university bookshelves. It will be of value to researchers and students over a broad range of climate-related disciplines." (Gerard van der Schrier, The Holocene, Vol. 16 (4), 2006)
