An Introduction to Atmospheric Thermodynamics

By Anastasios A. Tsonis

Cambridge University Press, Great Britain, 2002. Softcover. Near Fine Condition. A Short Course in Atmospheric Thermodynamics is a self-contained, concise but rigorous book introducing the reader to the basics of the subject. Introductory chapters provide basic definitions and some useful mathematical and physical notes. Following a treatment of the fundamental laws of classical thermodynamics, the book describes topics including the properties of moist air and atmospheric stability. Thermodynamic diagrams are used as tools in the forecasting of storm development. In the final chapter the author introduces the problem of weather prediction and the relevance of thermodynamics. Anastasios Tsonis has taught atmospheric thermodynamics at undergraduate level for 15 years and is a highly respected researcher in the field. This book provides an ideal text for short courses taken as part of an atmospheric science, meteorology, physics or natural science program. 171 pages. Quantity Available: 1.

Weather Rage [Science Spectra]

By Ross Reynolds

Taylor & Francis, London, 2003. Softcover. Near Fine Condition. Some atmospheric disturbances produce the kind of extreme weather events making the national and international new headlines on a regular basis. Just about everyone is interested in knowing more about hurricanes, typhoons and tornadoes. There is often confusion about whether or not they are the same thing and whether, for example, we can control these extremely violent phenomena. Thunder and lightning affect many people but how many of us understand what generates such massive electrical discharges and why they occur more at some times of year than at others? A popular addition to the Science Spectra Series, Weather Rage explains the origin and nature of different types of weather observed across many areas of the world - and those that occur on different 'scales'. Presenting an in-depth look at the main factors underlying weather, this book will be an extremely useful guide for all meteorology students and practitioners as well as a source of reference for all those with an interest in the weather. 112 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: Meteorology; Science & Technology; ISBN: 0415369827. ISBN/EAN: 9780415369824. Inventory No: 247478.. 9780415369824
