About this book

Comprehensive introduction to the subject that develops the interrelationships of physical and dynamical meteorology.

[In the opinion of the reviewer]the book is an example of a very well conceived and written textbook...General layout of the material is clear, illustrations are well selected and from a didactic point of view the aim of unification of traditional physical and dynamical meteorology has been successfully achieved. It can be recommended as a basic or supporting lecture both for students as well as professionals who would like to examine their field from a slightly different point of view. --Krzysztof Haman, Warsaw University, PURE APPLIED GEOPHYSICS
