Reviews & endorsements
"...clear and well laid out... Each of the ten chapters builds on the previous one, allowing the book to be worked through systematically. Each chapter contains useful worked examples in addition to a number of problems.... Recommended." - R.J. Barthelmie, CHOICESee more reviews
"...the author talks to the sutdents without sacrificing rigor. He has included many good examples at the end of each chapter; these examples are, so to speak, application notes...problems are given too, to tease and torture the students. In general, the pace is unhurried and unforbidding...the book has a niche as a first exposure beyond basic physics to the marvelous complexities of the gaseous atmosphere." --Bulletin of American Meteorological Society
