Meteorology for Scientists and Engineers
Roland B. Stull

Standardwerk zur Einführung in die Meteorologie. Mit ausführlicher Beschreibung zur Synoptik sowie Föhn und Tornados (nach heutigem Kenntnisstand!) Fürs Studium und für Interessierte.

Kurzbeschreibung
The Second Edition of Roland Stull's METEOROLOGY FOR SCIENTISTS AND ENGINEERS lets professors quantify the concepts in Ahren's METEOROLOGY TODAY, SEVENTH EDITION like never before. This book can serve as a technical companion to Ahren's text or as a stand-alone text. It provides the mathematical equations needed for a higher level of understanding of meteorology. The organization is mapped directly to the Ahrens book, making Stull's text a perfect companion. More than a lab manual or workbook, this text contains detailed math and physics that expand upon concepts presented in Ahrens' text, as well as numerous solved problems. This text demonstrates how to use mathematical equations (algebra, geometry, trigonometry, and finite differential equations) to explain the dominant characteristics of certain atmospheric phenomena and processes.

Synopsis
The new edition of this text addresses the needs of professors to quantify the concepts in Ahrens by providing the mathematical equations needed for a more detailed understanding of weather. The organization maps directly to Ahrens, making Stull the perfect companion. It is not a lab manual nor a workbook, but it does contain numerous solved problems which students can solve. The text demonstrates how to use equations by including numerous solved examples that demonstrate with mathematics (algebra, geometry, trigonometry and finite differential equations but not calculus) the dominant characteristics of certain atmospheric phenomena and processes.

An Introduction to Boundary Layer Meteorology
Roland B. Stull

Standardwerk zur Grenzschichtmeteorologie - für Meteorologie-Studenten.

Kurzbeschreibung
Part of the excitement in boundary-layer meteorology is the challenge associated with turbulent flow - one of the unsolved problems in classical physics. An additional attraction of the field is the rich diversity of topics and research methods that are collected under the umbrella-term of boundary-layer meteorology. The flavour of the challenges and the excitement associated with the study of the atmospheric boundary layer are captured in this textbook. Fundamental concepts and mathematics are presented prior to their use, physical interpretations of the terms in equations are given, sample data are shown, examples are solved, and exercises are included. The work should also be considered as a major reference and as a review of the literature, since it includes tables of parameterizatlons, procedures, filed experiments, useful constants, and graphs of various phenomena under a variety of conditions. It is assumed that the work will be used at the beginning graduate level for students with an undergraduate background in meteorology, but the author envisions, and has catered for, heterogeneity in the background and experience of his readers.

Pressestimmen
`The book is an impressive work and will be of value to many students, researchers and operational meteorologists,' Journal of Fluid Mechanics, 224, 1991 `... the detailed excellent treatment of the broad field of boundary layer meteorology makes the book most valuable, not only to students, but to anyone interested in turbulence in the boundary layer.' J. Borkowski, Pageoph, 133:1, 1990 'In summary the book is highly recommended for graduate students of meteorology as well as air chemists and aerosol physicists wanting to interpret their measured data in terms of boundary layer phenomena.' Atmospheric Research 26, 1991 `Das Buch ist allemal eine Investition wert und wird für viele Jahre ein Standardwerk über Grenzschichtmeteorologie bleiben. Einen 'Stull' sollte jeder (Grenzschicht-)Meteorologe besitzen.' Meteorologische Rundschau, 41:6 `Das Buch ist es wert, einem großen Leserkreis zugänglich gemacht zu werden. Es spricht nicht nur den Studenten an, sondern jeden Meteorologen bis hin zum Experten aus ausgewählten Gebieten der atmosphärischen Grenzschicht. Der anschauliche und leichte Zugang zur Thematik ermöglicht aber auch vielen Wissenschaftlern benachbarten Disziplinen, die sich in ihrer Tätigkeit mit meteorologischen Prozessen der atmosphärischen Grenzschicht auseinandersetzen müssen, eine rasche und einfache Einarbeitung.' Zeitschrift für Meteorologie, 40, 1990

Statistical Methods in Athmosperic Sciences
Daniel Wilks

Standardwerk zu statistischen Methoden in der Klimatologie. Ein Buch fürs Master-Studenten und für Forscher.

Kurzbeschreibung
Praise for the First Edition: "I recommend this book, without hesitation, as either a reference or course text...Wilks' excellent book provides a thorough base in applied statistical methods for atmospheric sciences". ("BAMS" ("Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society")). Fundamentally, statistics is concerned with managing data and making inferences and forecasts in the face of uncertainty. It should not be surprising, therefore, that statistical methods have a key role to play in the atmospheric sciences. It is the uncertainty in atmospheric behaviour that continues to move research forward and drive innovations in atmospheric modelling and prediction. This revised and expanded text explains the latest statistical methods that are being used to describe, analyse, test and forecast atmospheric data. It features numerous worked examples, illustrations, equations, and exercises with separate solutions. "Statistical Methods in the Atmospheric Sciences, Second Edition" will help advanced students and professionals understand and communicate what their data sets have to say, and make sense of the scientific literature in meteorology, climatology, and related disciplines. It offers accessible presentation and explanation of techniques for atmospheric data summarization, analysis, testing and forecasting. Many worked examples, and end-of-chapter exercises, with answers are provided.

Pressestimmen
"I would strongly recommend this book... To those who already possess the first edition and are satisfied users, you would be hard-pressed to do without the second edition." --Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society "What makes this book specific to meteorology, and not just to applied statistics, are its extensive examples and two chapters on statistical forecasting and forecast evaluation." -William (Matt) Briggs, Weill Medical College of Cornell University

Kurzbeschreibung
Synoptic meteorology is the diagnosis, study, and forecasting of weather using observations of simultaneous weather conditions over a wide area. In this new, comprehensive textbook for graduate and postgraduate meteorology students, the author presents for the first time information that is now considered essential in modern weather forecasting. Drawing on teaching materials from his work at the University of Oklahoma, Bluestein examines the elementary phenomena of synoptic meteorology, from scalar fields to atmospheric kinematics, dynamics, and thermodynamics. A later volume covers the behaviour of extratropical weather systems, fronts and jets, and precipitation systems in midlatitudes.
