Synoptic and Dynamic Climatology provides the first comprehensive account of the dynamical behaviour and mechanisms of the global climate system and its components, together with a modern survey of synoptic-scale weather systems in the tropics and extratropics, and of the methods and applications of synoptic climate classification. It is unrivalled in the scope and detail of its contents. The work is thoroughly up to date, with extensive bibliographies by chapter. It is illustrated with nearly 300 figures and plates.
*Part 1 provides an introduction to the global climate system and the space-time scales of weather and climate processes, followed by a chapter on climate data and their analysis
*Part 2 describes and explains the characteristics of the general circulation of the global atmosphere and includes the nature and causes of global teleconnection patterns
*Part 3 discusses synoptic weather systems in the extratropics and tropics and satellite-based climatologies of synoptic features. It also describes the applications of synoptic climatology and summarises current climatic research and its directions.
Roger Barry is Director of the World Data Center for Glaciology, a Fellow of the Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences and a Distinguished Professor of Geography at the University of Colorado, Boulder. He served as Director of the National Snow and Ice Data Center from 1981 2008. His teaching and research has been in climate change, arctic and mountain climates, and snow and ice processes. He has published 20 textbooks, more than 200 articles and supervised 55 graduate students. He was co-Vice Chair of the Climate and Cryosphere Project of the World Climate Research Programme from 2000 2005. Roger was a Guggenheim Fellow (1982 1983) and a Fulbright Teaching Fellow (Moscow, 2001). He is a Fellow of the American Geophysical Union and a Foreign Member of the Russian Academy of Natural Sciences. He is a winner of the Goldthwait Polar Medal (2006); the Founder's Medal of the Royal Geographical Society, London (2007); the F. Matthes award of the Cryospheric Specialty Group of the Association of American Geographers (2007); and the Humboldt Prize (2009 2011). He shared the Nobel Peace Prize with other team members of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (2007). He has been a Visiting Professor in Australia (1975), France (2004), Germany (1994, 2009, 2010), Japan (1983), New Zealand (1986), Russia (2001), Switzerland (1983, 1990, 1997) and the United Kingdom (1997). He is fluent in French, German and Russian.
Roger G. Barry worked for two years in the British Meteorological Office before attending Liverpool University where he received a BA Honours in Geography. He received an MSc in Climatology from McGill University, Montreal, and a PhD from the University of Southampton in 1965. In October 1968 he moved to the University of Colorado, Boulder to become Associate Professor of Geography, Professor (1971 2004) and Distinguished Professor (2004 10). In 1977 he became the Director of the World Data Center for Glaciology, which in 1980 merged into the National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC). Roger's teaching and research has spanned climate change, Arctic and mountain climates, synoptic climatology, and snow and ice processes. Roger has published twenty textbooks, including: Atmosphere, Weather and Climate (with R. J. Chorley, 10th edition, 2010); Mountain Weather and Climate (3rd edition, Cambridge University Press, 2008), Synoptic and Dynamic Climatology (with A. M. Carleton, 2011); The Arctic Climate System (with M. C. Serreze, Cambridge University Press, 2005); The Global Cryosphere: Past, Present and Future (with T. Y. Gan, Cambridge University Press, 2011). He has also published more than 250 research articles and supervised 65 graduate students. Roger has been a Guggenheim Fellow, a Fulbright Teaching Fellow at Moscow State University, and a visiting professor in Australia, France, Germany, Japan, New Zealand, Switzerland and the United Kingdom. His honours include: Fellow, American Geophysical Union; Foreign Member's Medal, Royal Geographical Society, and Humboldt Prize Fellow. He is currently Director of the International CLIVAR Project Office at the National Oceanography Centre, Southampton, UK.
"Barry and Carleton's remarkable work shows just how far the discipline has come in the last couple of centuries, and provides a sound platform from which to speculate about future developments. The authors clearly have the combined experience and "gravitas neccessary to undertake such a task...In summary, this text represents a significant benchmark against which all future publications in sypnotic and dynamic climatology will undoubtedly be measured."
-International Journal of Climatology
..."the book's thorough review of climate dynamics is a major accomplishment and contribution to the literature.There are many things to like about [this book]. It's presentation is clear and straightforward, and it is very well written and organized...an invaluable reference source that will well serve the community...an excellent resource for university graduate education...an excellent introduction to any and all...successfully fills a major void for anyone interested in the many facets of climate dynamics-Jeffrey C. Rogers, Department of Geography, Ohio State University, Columbus, OH."
"The book provides good coverage of satellite-based climatology and its synoptic features. I highly recommend [it] on the basis of its style, accessibility, and well-organized content."
-Optics and Photonics News, November 2002
"This up to date work is an expansive summary of both the dynamic mechanics of the global climate system as well as tropical and extratropical synoptic weather systems."
-Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society
