Overview

This book reflects the full scope of modern dynamic meteorology, while providing a coherent presentation of the fundamentals. The text emphasizes physical principles rather than mathematical elegance.

Features:

  • Presents a cogent explanation of the fundamentals of meteorology.
  • Explains storm dynamics for weather oriented meteorologists.
  • Discusses climate dynamics and the implications posed for global change.
  • Features a new chapter on mesoscale dynamics.
  • Includes treatments of climate dynamics, tropical meteorology, middle atmosphere dynamics, and numerical prediction.

"...explains storm & climate dynamics and features a new chapter on mesoscale dynamics...includes treatments of tropical meteorology, middle atmosphere dynamics, and numerical prediction.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A textbook for a two-term course in physical meteorology for seniors or first-year graduates. The emphasis is on physical principles rather than mathematical elegance. Updated from the previous editions (1972, 1979) with new treatments of tropical meteorology, middle atmosphere and mesoscale dynamics, global climate changes, and other topics. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
From the Publisher
"...the author succeeds in presenting the fundamentals while providing a motivating discussion on the full scope of dynamic meteorology and its applications."
