Overview

The Second Edition of Roland Stull's METEOROLOGY FOR SCIENTISTS AND ENGINEERS lets teachers quantify the ideas in Ahrens' METEOROLOGY TODAY, SIXTH EDITION like never before. This book can serve as a technical companion to Ahrens' or as a stand-alone text. It provides the mathematical equations needed for a higher level of understanding of meteorology. The orgnanization is mapped directly to the Ahrens book, making Stull's its perfect companion. More than a lab manual or a workbook, this text contains detailed math and physics that expand upon concepts presented in Ahrens, as well as numerous solved problems. This text demonstrates how to use mathematical equations (algebra, geometry, trigonometry and finite differential equations) to explain the dominant characteristics of certain atmospheric phenomena and processes.
