9780126151602: Fundamentals of Atmospheric Physics, Volume 61 (International Geophysics)

Fundamentals of Atmospheric Physics emphasizes 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 subject areas are developed from first principles, providing a self-contained text for students and scholars from diverse backgrounds.

The presentation is Lagrangian (single-body problems) in perspective, with a balance of theory and application. Each chapter includes detailed and extensive problems; selected answers are provided, as are appendices of various constants. The text requires a thorough foundation in calculus.

  • Presents a comprehensive introduction to atmospheric thermodynamics, hydrostatics, radiation and clouds, and dynamics
  • Develops concepts from first principles, providing a self-contained volume for readers from diverse backgrounds
  • Emphasizes the interaction of physical processes shaping global problems of atmospheric energetics, transport, and chemistry
  • Provides a balance of theory and applications, with examples drawn from a wide range of phenomena figuring in global atmospheric research
  • Extensively illustrated with global satellite imagery and analyses and photographs of laboratory simulations
  • Exercises apply to a wide range of topical problems

From the Back Cover:

A Volume in the INTERNATIONAL GEOPHYSICS series
Fundamentals of Atmospheric Physics is 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.

About the Author:

Murry L. Salby is a climate scientist and former chair of climate at Macquarie University, where he worked from 2008 to 2013. He has written two textbooks, Fundamentals of Atmospheric Physics (1996), and Physics of the Atmosphere and Climate (2011), the latter building on his first book, offers an overview of the processes controlling the atmosphere of Earth, weather, energetics, and climate physics. He has also authored over a hundred referenced articles in scientific journals.

Salby got his Bachelors in aerospace engineering in 1973, and his PhD in environmental dynamics from Georgia Tech in 1978, including a Sigma Xi: The Scientific Research Society doctoral research award. He began as an assistant professor at University of Colorado Boulder's Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences in 1984, became an associate professor in 1985, and professor in 1991, gaining tenure in 1998, before resigning in 2007. He has also held positions as a visiting professor and scientist at institutions in the U.S., Sweden, Australia, France, and Israel. He became professor of environmental science at Macquarie University, and worked there from 2008-2013.
