Synopsis
This comprehensive text describes the atmospheric processes, numerical methods, and computational techniques required for a scientist to study successfully air pollution and meteorology. Computer modeling has become a powerful tool in modern atmospheric sciences, combining the disciplines of meteorology, physics, mathematics, chemistry, computer sciences, and, to a lesser extent, geology, biology, microbiology, and oceanographic sciences.
Synopsis
Comprehensive graduate text describing the atmospheric processes, numerical methods, and computational techniques needed for those studying air pollution and meteorology.
