This exciting text provides a mathematically rigorous yetaccessible textbook that is primarily aimed at atmospheric sciencemajors. Its accessibility is due to the texts emphasis onconceptual understanding.
The first five chapters constitute a companion text tointroductory courses covering the dynamics of the mid-latitudeatmosphere. The final four chapters constitute a more advancedcourse, and provide insights into the diagnostic power of thequasi-geostrophic approximation of the equations outlined in theprevious chapters, the meso-scale dynamics of thefrontal zone, thealternative PV perspective for cyclone interpretation, and thedynamics of the life-cycle of mid-latitude cyclones.
* Written in a clear and accessible style
* Features real weather examples and global case studies
* Each chapter sets out clear learning objectives and testsstudents' knowledge with concluding questions andanswers
A Solutions Manual is also available for this textbook onthe Instructor Companion Site
".a student-friendly yet rigorous textbook thataccomplishes what no other textbook has done before. I highlyrecommend this textbook. For instructors, this is a great book ifthey don't have their own class notes - one can teachstraight from the book. And for students, this is a great book ifthey don't take good class notes - one can learnstraight from the book. This is a rare attribute of advancedtextbooks."
