Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book is intended as a textbook for courses in micrometeorology for undergraduate students (juniors or seniors) in meteorology or environmental science, as well as for an introductory graduate-level course in boundary-layer meteorology. It will also serve as a good reference for professional meteorologists, environmental scientists and engineers, particularly those interested in problems of air pollution, atmospheric-biospheric interactions, wind-engineering and engineering meteorology.

The book outlines basic laws and concepts, before using qualitative descriptions to introduce more complex theories. This new edition is updated and expanded, as are the references. Each chapter features worked-through problems and exercises.

Book News Annotation:

This textbook for an introductory course in micrometeorology or environmental fluid mechanics covers energy and radiation budgets near the earth's surface, thermal structures of the upper soil layer, atmospheric thermodynamics and stability concepts, fundamentals of viscous flows and turbulence, theories and models of turbulence, and surface-layer similarity theory and observations. The second edition adds example problems and a review of stratified atmospheric boundary layers.
