Overview

This text describes those tropospheric structures large enough to play a role in weather analysis — air masses and patterns in wind and other variables. Describes all important large-scale structures of the atmosphere — and their physical relationships; presents conceptual models of atmospheric phenomena and structures with schematic drawings and with examples on synoptic charts; provides relevant physical and mathematical description of basic interrelations. MARKETS:For courses in Weather Analysis, Weather Analysis and Forecasting, Synoptic Meteorology, Atmospheric Circulation Systems.

    I first became acquainted with this text as a student of Dr. Djuric's during the early 1990s. Shortly thereafter, the very useful note set was published as a hardcover book. As a meteorologist, I can tell you there are few texts that combine so much practical information along side the science/math to back it up. Unlike other texts which may provide similar information, this is written at a simpler level. Anyone interested in weather forecasting can learn from this book...
