About this book

Outlines the physical and mathematical basis of all aspects of atmospheric analysis.

...a synthesizing text that fills a major need and that will be highly appreciated in many departments concerned with environmental analysis. American Scientist "...should be on the shelf of anyone with more than a purely selfish interest in weather prediction and related fields..." Andrew R. Solow, Journal of the American Statistical Association "...fills an essential gap in academic meteorological literature. Ample discussion of actual trends in the subject presented in the last chapter, as well as references to very recent results, protect the book against too rapid outdating. Though basically intended for graduate students, this well written and carefully edited position will certainly be a valuable aid also for more advanced professionals in various fields of atmospheric sciences." Krzysztof Haman, Pageoph
