  • Mesoscale Dynamics

    This book provides a systematic approach to mesoscale weather systems, and covers a more complete spectrum of mesoscale dynamics than other texts. The opening chapters introduce the basic equations governing mesoscale weather systems and their approximations. The subsequent chapters cover four major areas of mesoscale dynamics: wave dynamics, ...

  • Interpolation of Spatial Data

    Prediction of a random field based on observations of the random field at some set of locations arises in mining, hydrology, atmospheric sciences, and geography. Kriging, a prediction scheme defined as any prediction scheme that minimizes mean squared prediction error among some class of predictors under a particular model for the field, is ...

  • 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. ...

  • Ice Ages and Astronomical Causes

    It is not possible to understand the present or future climate unless scientists can account for the enormous and rapid cycles of glaciation that have taken place over the last million years, and which are expected to continue into the future. A great deal has happened in the theory of the ice ages over the last decade, and it is now widley ...

  • Adaptive Atmospheric Modeling

    This book gives an overview and guidance in the development of adaptive techniques for atmospheric modeling. Written in an educational style and featuring an exhaustive list of references, it is a starting point for everyone who is interested in adaptive modeling, not restricted to atmospheric sciences. It covers paradigms of adaptive techniques, ...

  • Wave Packets and Their Bifurcations in Geophysical Fluid Dynamics

    Wave Packets and Their Bifurcations in Geophysical Fluid Dynamics provides insight into the understanding of the nature of the geophysical fluids, especially their structures and structural changes. Moreover, the comprehensive treatment of the material provides a systematic and complete development on the subject. Graduate students and ...

  • Comparative Aeronomy

    This volume provides eleven reviews by leading researchers in the fields of planetary science, aeronomy, and atmospheric science.

  • Facing Climate Change Together

    The vast majority of climate scientists now agree that human-induced climate change is a reality, but there is much ongoing research and debate. Nevertheless, our global society is confronted with the urgent need for a wise response to potential climate change. This volume brings together scientists from the US and Europe to review the ...

  • Stratosphere Troposphere Interactions

    This textbook describes various physical, radiative, dynamical and chemical processes involved in the coupling between the Stratosphere and Troposphere. This textbook is intended for graduate students in middle atmosphere stratospheric physics, dynamic and atmospheric science courses and will be useful to all research workers in meteorology, ...

  • The Asian Monsoon: Causes, History and Effects

    The Asian monsoon is one of the most dramatic climatic phenomena on Earth, with far reaching environmental and societal effects. Almost two thirds of humanity lives within regions influenced by the monsoon. With the emerging Asian economies, the importance of the region to the global economy has never been more marked. The Asian Monsoon describes ...
