9780521339568: The Physics of Atmospheres

Dr Houghton has revised the acclaimed first edition of The Physics of Atmospheres in order to bring this important textbook completely up-to-date. Several factors have led to vigorous growth in the atmospheric sciences, particularly the availability of powerful computers for detailed modelling, the investigation of the atmospheres of other planets, and techniques of remote sensing. The author describes the physical processes governing the structure and circulation of the atmosphere. Simple physical models are constructed by applying the principles of classical thermodynamics, radiative transfer and fluid mechanics, together with analytic and numerical techniques. These models are applied to real planetary atmospheres. This new edition is essential for undergraduates or graduate students studying atmospheric physics, climatology or meteorology, as well as planetary scientists with an interest in atmospheres.

Book Description:

This revised edition takes in the growth in atmospheric sciences. The author describes the physical processes describing the structure and circulation of the atmosphere. Simple physical models are constructed by applying the principles of classical thermodynamics, radiative transfer and fluid mechanics, together with analytical and numerical techniques. These models are then applied to real planetary atmospheres.

Review:

' ... a splendid volume in the best traditions of CUP student texts. An excellent source of reference.' New Scientist

'Professor Houghton has made a laudable attempt to present a scientifically rigorous account of a very large subject in a very small book. The resulting volume is well worth its price and could be extremely useful to a serious and well-prepared would-be meteorologist.' WMO Bulletin
