Salby, Murry L., Dmowska, Renata, Pielke, Roger A.


A Volume in the INTERNATIONAL GEOPHYSICS series Fundamentals of Atmospheric Physicsis a comprehensive introduction to the subject that develops 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 subjects are developed from first principles, providing a self-contained reference for students and scholars from diverse backgrounds. The presentation is Lagrangian (single-body problem) in perspective, with a balance of theory and applications. Each chapter includes detailed and extensive problems; selected answers are provided, as are appendices of various physical constants and mathematical formulae. The text is extensively illustrated with global satellite imagery and analyses and photographs of laboratory simulations. Written for seniors and graduate students in atmospheric science, the text requires a solid foundation in calculus.Salby, Murry L. is the author of 'Fundamentals of Atmospheric Physics', published 1996 under ISBN 9780126151602 and ISBN 0126151601.
