International Geophysics #61: Fundamentals of Atmospheric Physics

International Geophysics #61: Fundamentals of Atmospheric Physics Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Fundamentals of Atmospheric Physics emphasizes the interrelationships of physical and dynamical meteorology. The text unifies four major subject areas: atmospheric thermodynamics, hydrostatic equilibrium and stability, atmospheric radiation and clouds, and atmospheric dynamics. These fundamental areas serve as cornerstones of modern atmospheric research on environmental issues like global change and ozone depletion. Physical concepts underlying these subject areas are developed from first principles, providing a self-contained text for students and scholars from diverse backgrounds.

The presentation is Lagrangian (single-body problems) in perspective, with a balance of theory and application. Each chapter includes detailed and extensive problems; selected answers are provided, as are appendices of various constants. The text requires a thorough foundation in calculus.

* Presents a comprehensive introduction to atmospheric thermodynamics, hydrostatics, radiation and clouds, and dynamics

* Develops concepts from first principles, providing a self-contained volume for readers from diverse backgrounds

* Emphasizes the interaction of physical processes shaping global problems of atmospheric energetics, transport, and chemistry

* Provides a balance of theory and applications, with examples drawn from a wide range of phenomena figuring in global atmospheric research

* Extensively illustrated with global satellite imagery and analyses and photographs of laboratory simulations

* Exercises apply to a wide range of topical problems

Book News Annotation:

An introductory graduate text in atmospheric science presenting a unified treatment of physical and dynamical meteorology from a Lagrangian perspective. Salby (atmospheric theory and analysis, U. of Colorado) develops the fundamental principles within atmospheric thermodynamics, hydrostatic equilibrium and stability, atmospheric radiation and clouds, and atmospheric dynamics. Discussions of the global energy budget, hydrological cycle, and photochemistry are also included as applications of the major themes. The text is suitable for students with a basic undergraduate physics, advanced calculus, and exposure to partial differential equations. Includes problems, selected answers, illustrations, color photographs, and appendices of properties, constants, identities, and coordinates.
