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.

Summary: "Excellent combined approach to synoptic and dynamic meteorology."--Arlindo Da Silva, University of Wisconsin"Very throough treatment of topics necessary for modern synopticians!"--Keith Johnson, Jackson State University"Both [volumes 1 and 2] are excellent reference books.Kudos to Dr. Bluestein--truly a labor of love!"--James Moore, St. Louis University"An excellent text, integrating synoptic and dynamic meteorology in a manner that should have been done years ago! The figures are very helpful."--William Sellers, University of Arizona"Gives a thorough treatment to a number of topics that are important in contemporary weather analysis."--Dusan Djuric, Texas A&M University"Thorough coverage of topics!"--Keith Johnson, Jackson State University"The only text that covers this material exaustively; therefore, it is an absolute must for my forecasting course."--Charles Doswell III, University of Oklahoma"This new, comprehensive textbook for upper-division undergraduate and graduate students of meteorology presents for the first time information that is now considered essential in weather forecasting. This timely work emphasizes both physical understanding and mathematical analysis, and clearly explains observations in light of current theory. It will be a valuable reference for weather forecasters and researchers as well as students." --Bulletin of theAmerican Meteorological Society"The book seems to contain everything. . . . highly detailed, rich in examples, and careful to provide values and units for even the most mundane physical constant. The figures are of excellent quality. I recommend this book for everyone's library and for use in routine synoptic and dynamic meteorology courses." --Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society"Contains theory now considered essential in weather forecasting. The text is accompanied by many, clearly drawn figures which are often used to link together theory and observation. Each chapter contains an extensive list of references. . . . those involved in forecasting and those new to dynamical meteorology will find it a very useful reference text." --Weather"A new, comprehensive textbook for meteorology students. . . . contains nearly all essential knowledge on basic kinematics and dynamics of the atmosphere. The mathematics employed is given in a compact and clear way. The transformations are carefully explained and many approximations are discussed. . . . [the numerous figures] remarkably facilitate an understanding of the problems described. . . . agreeable to read. . . . nicely illustrated by literature."--Pure and Applied Geophysics.
