9780123848666: An Introduction to Dynamic Meteorology, Volume 88, Fifth Edition (International Geophysics)

During the past decade, the science of dynamic meteorology has continued its rapid advance. The scope of dynamic meteorology has broadened considerably. Much of the material is based on a two-term course for seniors majoring in atmospheric sciences.

This book presents a cogent explanation of the fundamentals of meteorology and explains storm dynamics for weather-oriented meteorologists. It discusses climate dynamics and the implications posed for global change. The new edition has added a companion website with MATLAB exercises and updated treatments of several key topics.

  • Provides clear physical explanations of key dynamical principles
  • Contains a wealth of illustrations to elucidate text and equations, plus end-of-chapter problems
  • Holton is one of the leading authorities in contemporary meteorology, and well known for his clear writing style
  • Instructor's Manual available to adopters

NEW IN THIS EDITION

  • A companion website with MATLAB® exercises and demonstrations
  • Updated treatments on climate dynamics, tropical meteorology, middle atmosphere dynamics, and numerical prediction

From the Back Cover:

Praise for previous editions "reflects the full scope of modern dynamic meteorology, while providing a presentation of the fundamentals."-Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society

"careful presentation of introductory material and clear discussion of dynamical principles make this an excellent basic account of dynamical meteorology." -Journal of Fluid MechanicsAn Introduction to Dynamic Meteorologyis a top-selling meteorological textbook that for decades has introduced readers to the study of atmospheric behavior and dynamics impacted by weather and climate. New and revised content in this edition arms you with the most up-to-date and relevant science available in a book. With an emphasis on the theory of synoptic scale motions, it includes discussions of mesoscale circulations such as fronts, mountain waves, and hurricanes. Features:

  • The latest understanding of important circulation systems
  • MATLAB® exercises at the end of each chapter to aid comprehension of meteorological concepts
  • Appendices featuring a complete list of more than 100 principle meteorological symbols and standard atmospheric data

New to Fifth Edition:

  • Substantial updates to many chapters
  • Information on the most recent developments in predictability, data assimilation, and climate sensitivity
  • A fresh streamlined pedagogical approach to tropical meteorology, baroclinic development, and quasi-geostrophic theory
  • Aspects of synoptic meteorology provide improved links to observations

Password-protected multimedia websites, one for students and one for instructors, supplement this text with:

  • Solutions Manual and teaching tools for instructors
  • Selection of illustrations and figures in full color
  • MATLAB codes for plotting animated weather patterns
  • Problem sets and exercises

About the Author:

Gregory J. Hakim is Professor and Chair of the Department of Atmospheric Sciences in the College of the Environment at the University of Washington. His research focuses on problems in climate reconstruction, predictability, data assimilation, atmospheric dynamics, and synoptic meteorology. He teaches courses in weather, atmospheric sciences, atmospheric structure and analysis, atmospheric motions, synoptic meteorology, balance dynamics, and weather predictability and data assimilation.
