Praise for previous editions "reflects the full scope of modern dynamic meteorology, while providing a presentation of the fundamentals."-Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society "careful presentation of introductory material and clear discussion of dynamical principles make this an excellent basic account of dynamical meteorology." -Journal of Fluid MechanicsAn Introduction to Dynamic Meteorologyis a top-selling meteorological textbook that for decades has introduced readers to the study of atmospheric behavior and dynamics impacted by weather and climate. New and revised content in this edition arms you with the most up-to-date and relevant science available in a book. With an emphasis on the theory of synoptic scale motions, it includes discussions of mesoscale circulations such as fronts, mountain waves, and hurricanes. Features: The latest understanding of important circulation systems MATLAB® exercises at the end of each chapter to aid comprehension of meteorological concepts Appendices featuring a complete list of more than 100 principle meteorological symbols and standard atmospheric data New to Fifth Edition: Substantial updates to many chapters Information on the most recent developments in predictability, data assimilation, and climate sensitivity A fresh streamlined pedagogical approach to tropical meteorology, baroclinic development, and quasi-geostrophic theory Aspects of synoptic meteorology provide improved links to observations Password-protected multimedia websites, one for students and one for instructors, supplement this text with: Solutions Manual and teaching tools for instructors Selection of illustrations and figures in full color MATLAB codes for plotting animated weather patterns Problem sets and exercises "...explains storm & climate dynamics and features a new chapter on mesoscale dynamics...includes treatments of tropical meteorology, middle atmosphere dynamics, and numerical prediction.
