This new, comprehensive textbook for upper-division undergraduate and graduate students of meteorology presents for the first time information that is now considered essential in modern weather forecasting. Based on a successful series of courses taught by the author at the University of Oklahoma, the text carefully examines the foundations of synoptic meteorology, from the analysis of scalar fields to atmospheric kinematics, dynamics, and thermodynamics. Newer topics such as Q-vectors, and modern observing systems such as Doppler radar are discussed, and several detailed figures and many helpful problems are included. This timely work emphasizes both physical understanding and mathematical analysis, and clearly explains observations in light of current theory. It will be a valuable reference for weather forecasters and researchers as well as students.

About the Author:

Howard Bluestein is at University of Oklahoma.

Review:

"Excellent combined approach to synoptic and dynamic meteorology."--Arlindo Da Silva, University of Wisconsin

"Very throough treatment of topics necessary for modern synopticians!"--Keith Johnson, Jackson State University

"Both [volumes 1 and 2] are excellent reference books....Kudos to Dr. Bluestein--truly a labor of love!"--James Moore, St. Louis University

"An excellent text, integrating synoptic and dynamic meteorology in a manner that should have been done years ago! The figures are very helpful."--William Sellers, University of Arizona

"Gives a thorough treatment to a number of topics that are important in contemporary weather analysis."--Dusan Djuric, Texas AandM University

"Thorough coverage of topics!"--Keith Johnson, Jackson State University

"The only text that covers this material exaustively; therefore, it is an absolute must for my forecasting course."--Charles Doswell III, University of Oklahoma

"This new, comprehensive textbook for upper-division undergraduate and graduate students of meteorology presents for the first time information that is now considered essential in weather forecasting. This timely work emphasizes both physical understanding and mathematical analysis, and
clearly explains observations in light of current theory. It will be a valuable reference for weather forecasters and researchers as well as students." --Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society

"The book seems to contain everything. . . . highly detailed, rich in examples, and careful to provide values and units for even the most mundane physical constant. The figures are of excellent quality. I recommend this book for everyone's library and for use in routine synoptic and dynamic
meteorology courses." --Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society

"Contains theory now considered essential in weather forecasting. The text is accompanied by many, clearly drawn figures which are often used to link together theory and observation. Each chapter contains an extensive list of references. . . . those involved in forecasting and those new to
dynamical meteorology will find it a very useful reference text." --Weather

Book Description Oxford University Press Inc, United States, 1992. Hardback. Condition: New. New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Synoptic meteorology is the diagnosis, study, and forecasting of weather using observations of simultaneous weather conditions over a wide area. In this new, comprehensive textbook for graduate and postgraduate meteorology students, the author presents for the first time information that is now considered essential in modern weather forecasting. Drawing on teaching materials from his work at the University of Oklahoma, Bluestein examines the elementary phenomena of synoptic meteorology, from scalar fields to atmospheric kinematics, dynamics, and thermodynamics. A later volume covers the behaviour of extratropical weather systems, fronts and jets, and precipitation systems in midlatitudes. Seller Inventory # AAZ9780195062670
