Synopses & Reviews
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.
Review of the First Edition
"This book carries all the essential attributes of an introductory postgraduate/undergraduate text, but will serve scientists in applied meteorology as a source for information as well." Geophysics And Bioclimatology
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, the
