  • Adaptive Optics for Astronomy

    The blossoming of adaptive optical techniques has brought about a revolution in the field of astronomical observation. Coupled with the new generation of large, ground-based telescopes, it allows us to achieve an unprecendented angular resolution in the analysis of faint astronomical sources at optical wavelengths. This book provides the ...

  • Interdisciplinary Aspects of Turbulence

    The interdisciplinary aspects of turbulence are brought together in this volume containing chapters written by experts from very diverse fields, including geophysics, astrophysics, and engineering. It covers several subjects on which considerable progress was made during the last decades, from questions concerning the very nature of turbulence to ...

  • IUTAM Symposium on Developments in Geophysical Turbulence

    Turbulence is ubiquitous in nature, playing a role in a variety of geophysical problems and related flows. Topics that will be emphasized in the proceedings of Developments of Geophysical Turbulence are: the physics and mathematics of turbulence, atmospheric and oceanic turbulence, and historical developments. This symposium continued a long ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • Statistical Mechanics of Turbulent Flows

    The simulation of turbulent reacting flows, connected with environmental protection and the design of chemical and mechanical processes, is increasingly important. Statistical Mechanics of Turbulent Flows presents a modern overview of basic ways to calculate such flows. It discusses the fundamental problems related to the use of basic equations ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • Air Pollution Modeling and its Application IX

    Model Assessment and Verification, Including Policy Implications: Air Quality Modeling in Complex Terrains; Y. Mahrer. U.K. Atmospheric Dispersion Modeling System; D.J. Carruthers, et al. Air Pollution Modeling in Coastal Areas with Emphasis on the Mediterranean Region: Weather Conditions During Air Pollution Episodes in Athens, Greece; G. ...

  • 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 ...
