Beschreibung

This book is an introduction to the concepts behind the popular understanding of climate and global warming. The author provides readers with a survey and reference to the subject to be used before, during and after they delve into the details of statistics, dynamics and thermodynamics. Dynamic Climatology reviews the basic concepts in the study of dynamic climatology, their expression in the form of equations and the physics of models used to reproduce the weather phenomena of a specific location. It takes a historical approach concentrating on the development of ideas during the last four hundred years. Unlike most books in this field, which are devoted to a single aspect of dynamic climatology, the intent of this volume is to present a coherent narrative of the different components of climate thus providing a solid basis of understanding.

Portrait

John N. Rayner has served at The Ohio State University as chair of one of the top ranked departments of geography in the USA for twenty years and as director of atmospheric sciences for ten years. In those positions he has concentrated upon the development of curricula that guide students towards success in their respective fields. As a teacher and researcher for forty years he has published in the areas of temporal and spatial analysis, of atmospheric modeling, and of spatial cognition. His book, An Introduction to Spectral Analysis, is unique in geography.

Pressestimmen

"One of the best textbooks I have read... In not trying to do too much it achieves everything." Times Higher Education Supplement "Graduate students and advanced undergraduates will find this book very useful for both refreshing forgotten material and learning the essentials of atmosphere science for the first time. Carefully and clearly written, interesting historical accounts enliven most topics, making for a work that is simultaneously rigorous, concise, and interesting." - Professor James Burt, University of Wisconsin, Madison
