Series: International Geophysics

The International Geophysics book series has been designed to provide a comprehensive source of detailed information on all aspects of geophysics. Intended to cover the entire range of the discipline, topics are included from a diverse range of areas such as seismology, meteorology, hydrogeology, and climate and ocean dynamics. For more information about the series of for details of how to submit a book proposal, please contact the Series Editors or the Acquisitions Editor, Susan Dennis at susan.dennis@elsevier.com.

Most recent volume


Volume -. Atmospheric Science

Authors: John Wallace Peter Hobbs
This book has been written in response to a need for a text to support several of the introductory courses in atmospheric sciences commonly taught in universities; namely, introductory survey courses at the junior or senior undergraduate level and beginning graduate level, the undergraduate physical meteorology course, and the undergraduate synoptic laboratory. These courses serve to introduce the student to the fundamental physical principles upon which the atmospheric sciences are based and to provide an elementary description and interpretation of the wide range of atmospheric phenomena dealt with in detail in more advanced courses. In planning the book we have assumed that students enrolled in such courses have already had some exposure to calculus and physics at the first-year college level and to chemistry at the high school level.
