A CENTURY OF WEATHER PROGRESS

By Caskey, James E., Jr. (Ed..)

Boston: American Meterological Society, 1970. The subtitle of this volume is: A collection of addresses presented presented at a Joint Symposium Commemorating the Centennial of the United States Weather Services and the Golden Anniversary of the American Meteorological Society, Wahington, D. C. February 12-14, 1970.The principal topics (and number of papers) were: Expanding the Understanding of the Atmospheric-Hydrospheric System (7); Extension of Prediction Services to Meet New or Enlarged User Needs (12); and Expectations for Environmental Control (4). Although many of thre participants expressed optimism about the future of computer-driven forecasting models, not all were enthusiasts: "I forecast that there will be at least one new invention during the coming century, writes Edward Lorenz, whose impact upon meteorology will be comparable to that of the computer ... Beyond the the day of this invention I can no longer predict where meteorology will go, except that to say progress in some direction will be abundant." 170 pages, with Foreword. maps, charts, figures, and halftones; plus iv pages, Frontispiece, and Table of Contents; References at the end of most papers. DJ has pinprick at front gutter, and chips at rear upper corners; boards are clean and sound; text is strong and clean, though browning to margins.. Printed Blue Boards.

VLSI: TECHNOLOGY AND DESIGN

By Folberth, Otto G. & Grobman, Warren D. (Eds.)

New York: IEEE Press - Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers, 1984. Let's see if we can sort this out. In 1983 the IEEE produced two special issues, "Micron ansd Submicron Circuit Engineering," and "VLSI Design: Problems and Tools." The contents of those issues, with the exception of two un-named papers that were considered "too specialized for the envisaged broader readership," have been republished in this publication. Addtionally the co-editors, both associated with IBM, contributed an original paper each, to bring the final number of papers back to where it began. The 25 papers - 23 reprinted, two new - have been grouped under the following topics: Overview; Lithography; Devices and Processes; Micron and Submicron Circuit Engineering - Digital and Analog Applications and Results; Modeling and Simulation of Devices and Circuits; Design Methodologies and Testing of VLSI Chips; International Aspects; and Outlook. 309 pages, with tables, figures, half-tones, Author Index, Subject Index, and Editor's Biographies; plus ix pages, Contents, Preface, and (editors') Foreword; References at the end of each paper.
