'Written with wit, peppered with personal anecdotes, and illustrated with simple physical problems, this text is a pleasure to read and acts as a useful reference book as well.' Howard B. Bluestein, The Times Higher Education Supplement
'The book is certainly worth recommending for those specialized students and researchers who are prepared to walk the insightful path in search of a deeper knowledge of atmospheric dynamics under Green's illuminating guidance.' S. Bandhari, World Meteorological Organization Bulletin
In his book, John Green presents a unique personal insight into the fundamentals of fluid mechanics and atmospheric dynamics. Generations of students have benefited from his lectures, and this book, many years in the making, is the result of his wide teaching and research experience. The theory of fluid flow has developed to such an extent that very complex mathematics and models are currently used to describe it, but many of the fundamental results follow from relatively simple considerations: these classic principles are derived here in a novel, distinctive, and at times even idiosyncratic, way. The book is an introduction to fluid mechanics in the atmosphere for students and researchers that are already familiar with the subject, but who wish to extend their knowledge and philosophy beyond the currently popular development of conventional undergraduate instruction.
