atmospheric boundary layer Books

  • Atmospheric Boundary Layers

    This collection of peer reviewed papers represents a concise, up-to-date summary of our current knowledge of planetary boundary layer (PBL) physics and parameterization. As such, it makes a major contribution to the interchange of knowledge and ideas between physicists, meteorologists and environmental modellers and sets out the course to be ...

  • The Atmospheric Boundary Layer for Engineers

    This book assumes no previous knowledge of the subject and the material has been selected to introduce the reader to the important ideas and applications. It is particularly well suited as an introduction to the subject for engineers. The first four chapters define and describe the atmospheric boundary layer. Thermodynamic and fluid kinematic ...

  • An Introduction to Boundary Layer Meteorology

    Part of the excitement in boundary-layer meteorology is the challenge associated with turbulent flow - one of the unsolved problems in classical physics. An additional attraction of the filed is the rich diversity of topics and research methods that are collected under the umbrella-term of boundary-layer meteorology. The flavor of the challenges ...

  • Boundary-Layer Meteorology - 25th Anniversary Volume, 1970-1995

    The journal Boundary-Layer Meteorology was started in 1970 and has become the premier vehicle for the publication of research papers in its field. Dr R.E. Munn served as Editor-in-Chief until recently. The special 25th Anniversary volume, on which this book is based, was compiled from review and other articles solicited and selected as a ...

  • Computational Atmospheric Acoustics

    Noise from cars, trains, and aeroplanes can be heard at large distances from the source. Accurate predictions of the loudness of the noise require accurate computations of sound propagation in the atmosphere. This book describes models that can be used for these computations. The models take into account complex effects of the atmosphere and ...

  • The Earth´s Atmosphere

    The book entitled 'Atmospheric science and Global Warming' covers a wide area of the atmospheric science, focussing particularly on those physical and dynamical aspects of our environment which tend to create heat sources and sinks in the earth-atmosphere system and which it seeks to balance through circulation at different time and space scales. ...

  • Atmospheric and Oceanic Mesoscale Processes

    Understanding, modeling and prediction of mesoscale processes in the atmosphere, ocean and environmental systems, have gained importance in the last decade or so. This is because of the availability of more sophisticated observational systems, provided by technological innovations and more realistic simulations using advanced dynamical models.This ...

  • Atmospheric Acoustic Remote Sensing

    Sonic Detection and Ranging (SODAR) systems and Radio Acoustic Sounding Systems (RASS) use sound waves to determine wind speed, wind direction, and turbulent character of the atmosphere. They are increasingly used for environmental and scientific applications such as analyzing ground-level pollution dispersion and monitoring conditions affecting ...

  • Diffusion and Transport of Pollutants in Atmospheric Mesoscale Flow Fields

    In regions as densely populated as Western Europe, prediction of the ecological implications of pollutant transport are important in order to minimise damage in the case of accidents, and to evaluate the possible influence of existing or planned sources. In most cases, such predictions depend on high-speed computation. The present textbook ...

  • Air-Sea Exchange: Physics, Chemistry and Dynamics

    This book is the first to introduce a multi-disciplinary approach to extending our understanding of air-sea interaction, where the atmospheric boundary layer, ocean mixed layer dynamics, and surface are collectively treated with their physical, chemical and biological components. The theme behind the book is 'high resolution', where the ...

  • Weather and Climate: the M.P. Singh Volume, Part 2

    Weather and climate are of concern to virtually all countries worldwide. For many countries the economy depends largely on agriculture, which is significantly affected by variations in weather and climate. This volume contains many original findings on weather and climate related to atmospheric and oceanic processes through mathematical modeling, ...

  • Fundamentals in Air Pollution

    This text is intended to be used in a lecture course for college students in air quality, with a focus on modelling challenges. The key current issues are discussed within six chapters: basic principles and classification of air pollution, radiative transfer, atmospheric boundary layer, gas-phase chemistry, aerosols and multiphase processes, and ...

  • Handbook of Micrometeorology

    The Handbook of Micrometeorology is the most up-to-date reference for micrometeorological issues and methods related to the eddy covariance technique for estimating mass and energy exchange between the terrestrial biosphere and the atmosphere. It is intended to provide micrometeorologists, ecosystem scientists, boundary-layer meteorologists, and ...

  • Climatology

    Meteorology was first considered in Landolt-Börnstein in Volume III (published 1952) of the 6th Edition. At that time, nine contributions with 153 pages seemed enough. In the meantime, meteorology has experienced a worldwide boom owing to the growing interest in environmental problems. New observation and evaluation methods together with high ...

  • Air-Ice-Ocean Interaction

    At a time when the polar regions are undergoing rapid and unprecedented change, understanding exchanges of momentum, heat and salt at the ice-ocean interface is critical for realistically predicting the future state of sea ice. By offering a measurement platform largely unaffected by surface waves, drifting sea ice provides a unique laboratory for ...

  • Climatology

    Volume V/4 of the New Series covers the field of meteorology as the physics of the atmosphere in several subvolumes. The first, V/4a 'Thermodynamical and dynamical structures of the global atmosphere', appeared in 1986. It was followed by subvolume V/4b dealing with the physical and chemical data of the atmosphere. Subvolume V/4c, which appears in ...

  • Wind Climate in Cities

    If one surveys the development of wind engineering, one comes to the conclusion that the challenge of urban climatology is one of the most important remaining tasks for the wind engineers. But what distinguishes wind engineering in urban areas from conventional wind engineering? Principally, the fact that the effects studied are usually ...
