Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Das Grundlagenwerk "Das Klima der bodennahen Luftschicht" von Rudolf Geiger ist seit den 70er Jahren vergriffen; der Autor verstarb 1981. Auch die amerikanische Ausgabe bei Harvard University Press ist seit 1986 vergriffen. Das Buch ist in USA immer noch ein Standardwerk (in Deutschland gibt es ebenfalls kein vergleichbar gutes Buch), und so konnten zwei Wissenschaftler in USA gefunden werden, die die dringend notwendige Neuauflage mit Streichung überholter und Hinzufügung aktueller Kapitel/Abschnitte in Arbeit nehmen wollten. Sie belassen den bewährten Aufbau des Werks unverändert.This revised and updated version of Rudolf Geiger's classic microclimatology text is designed to introduce readers to the nature of the atmosphere and climate near the ground. It is especially aimed at those seeking a first introduction to the field of microclimatology and thus are in need of assistance in dealing with and understanding the seemingly and ever increasing literature on the subject. The Climate Near the Ground presents the literature in a well-organized and easily understood descriptive fashion. This book is designed not only as an introduction text for students in environmental science but also as a reference for environmental scientists desiring a basic understanding of the climate near the ground.
