This revised text 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 features a companion website with MATLAB® exercises and updated treatments of several key topics. Much of the material is based on a two-term course for seniors majoring in atmospheric sciences.
senior and graduate students in Meteorology and Atmospheric Science, as well as atmospheric scientists desiring a broad overview of dynamical meteorology.

"The book is very clearly and well written...the author succeeds in presenting the fundamentals while providing a motivating discussion on the full scope of dynamic meteorology and its applications." -Jorg Matschullat, Interdisciplinary Environmental Research Center, in ENVIRONMENTAL GEOLOGY, VOL. 49, MARCH 2006 Praise for previous edition: ...reflects the full scope of modern dynamic meteorology, while providing a presentation of the fundamentals. BULLETIN AMERICAN METEOROLOGICAL SOCIETY The careful presentation of introductory material and clear discussion of dynamical principles make this an excellent basic account of dynamical meteorology.
