  • Written by leading experts in the field.

Hervé Quénol is a geographer-climatologist working as a senior scientist at the French National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS). His research focuses on climate analysis and modelling at local scales in the context of climate change with applications in agroclimatology and urban climatology. He has managed approximately 15 research projects and has authored more than 90 peer-reviewed publications. He was awarded a prize by the International Organization of Vine and Wine for the book Climate change and vineyard terroirs (2015).

Andrew Sturman is Emeritus Professor at the University of Canterbury and Fellow of the Royal Meteorological Society. His research into regional and local scale weather and climate uses a combination of field, analytical and numerical modelling techniques, and has been applied to a range of air pollution, wind energy, and agricultural problems. He has published widely and is lead author of The Weather and Climate of Australia and New Zealand (Oxford University Press, 2006). He was awarded the Kidson Medal by the Meteorological Society of New Zealand in 2003 for his research, and the Distinguished New Zealand Geographer Medal by the New Zealand Geographical Society in 2016 for his contributions to the wider community.
