Additional Book Details

During the past decade, the science of dynamic meteorology has continued its rapid advance. The scope of dynamic meteorology has broadened considerably. Much of the material is based on a two-term course for seniors majoring in atmospheric sciences.

This book presents a cogent explanation of the fundamentals of meteorology and explains storm dynamics for weather-oriented meteorologists. It discusses climate dynamics and the implications posed for global change. The new edition has added a companion website with MATLAB exercises and updated treatments of several key topics.

Provides clear physical explanations of key dynamical principlesContains a wealth of illustrations to elucidate text and equations, plus end-of-chapter problemsHolton is one of the leading authorities in contemporary meteorology, and well known for his clear writing styleInstructor's Manual available to adopters


A companion website with MATLAB® exercises and demonstrationsUpdated treatments on climate dynamics, tropical meteorology, middle atmosphere dynamics, and numerical prediction
