Introduction to Weather and Climate Science
123,00 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Introduction to Weather and Climate Science is a freshman-level undergraduate introductory textbook. It is geared specifically to the non-scientist, and requires no prior knowledge of meteorology. Written in a conversational tone, the book is ideal for first courses in the subject. It emphasizes the application of basic ideas to improve understanding of the kinds of weather systems encountered on a daily basis. Introduction to Weather and Climate Science covers the following topics: - The Chemical Composition of the Atmosphere - Radiative Transfer of Energy - Moisture in the Atmosphere - The Production of Clouds and Precipitation - The Nature of Mid-latitude - Tropical Weather Systems This book gives instructors all the elements needed for an excellent course requiring minimal background preparation. It can be used effectively by any scientifically-literate non-meteorologist. Jonathan E. Martin is a Professor in the Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, where he has taught since 1994. He has received numerous accolades for his teaching, including the Underkofler Excellence in Teaching Award. Professor Martin is a Fellow in the Teaching Academy of the University of Wisconsin. He also has the distinction of being named a Mark H. Ingraham Distinguished Faculty and a Hamel Faculty Fellow by the university's College of Arts and Letters. In addition to teaching, Professor Martin has research expertise in the study of mid-latitude weather systems.

Mid-Latitude Weather Systems
122,00 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

First published in 1991 and reprinted in 1994 and 1998, Mid-Latitude Weather Systems has become a classic text in synoptic meteorology. It is the first text to make extensive use of conventional weather charts and equations to illustrate fully the behavior and evolution of weather patterns. Turning to well-documented case studies, Toby Carlson presents selected concepts in a unique way, facilitating the interpretation of this active and challenging area of study. Early chapters focus on the mathematics necessary to construct simple models, which are subsequently used to describe and interpret the movement, evolution, and structure of particular weather patterns. Carlson discusses specific meteorological phenomena using schematic illustrations in conjunction with actual weather charts for explanation. The charts are an original and powerful feature of the text and display parameters routinely issued by the United States Weather Service. With its fusion of the mathematical and descriptive fields of meteorology and its integrated coverage of synoptic and dynamic approaches, Mid-Latitude Weather Systems is an invaluable course text and reference source for students.

'This new edition of Mark Jacobson's textbook provides a comprehensive introduction to the history and science of the major air pollution and climate problems that face the world today, as well as the energy and policy solutions to those problems. Every chapter has been brought completely up-to-date with new data, figures, and text. There is a new additional chapter on large-scale solutions to climate and air pollution problems. Many more color photographs and diagrams and many additional examples and homework problems have been added. This is an ideal introductory textbook on air pollution for students taking courses in atmospheric chemistry and physics, meteorology, environmental science, Earth science, civil and environmental engineering, chemistry, environmental law and politics, and city planning and regulation. It will also form a valuable reference text for researchers, and an introduction to the subject for general audiences. Mark Z. Jacobson is Director of the Atmosphere/Energy Program and Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Stanford University. He is also a Senior Fellow of the Woods Institute for the Environment and of the Precourt Institute for Energy. He has been on the faculty at Stanford since 1994. His research involves the development and application of numerical models to understand the effects of energy systems, vehicles, and other emission sources on climate and air pollution and the analysis of renewable energy resources. He received the 2005 American Meteorological Society Henry G. Houghton Award, based in part on his discovery that black carbon may be the second-leading cause of global warming after carbon dioxide. In 2010, he was appointed to the Energy Efficiency and Renewables Advisory Committee by the U.S. Secretary of Energy'--
