"A Summit on Hurricanes and Climate Change held May 27-30, 2007 at the Aldemar Knossos Royal Village in Hersonissos, Crete brought together leading academics and researchers to discuss the issues and to address what research is needed to advance the science of hurricane climate. The Summit was hosted by Aegean Conferences and supported by the Bermuda Institute for Ocean Sciences (BIOS) Risk Prediction Initiative and by the U.S. National Science Foundation ... This volume is a collection of research papers from participants of the Summit"--Pref.
