Media reviews
From the reviews: "The book deserves a particularly positive appreciation in view not only of its inherent quality and scientific rigour, but also of the bright idea of the Author to merge, into a unified context, the description of the laws of atmosphere as a result of otherwise inseparable elements ! . this book is deeply recommended as useful and all-embracing textbook of university courses of atmospheric physics and chemistry. Its original planning will certainly stimulate the attention of students and readers ! ." (A. Longretto, Il Nuovo Cimento, January, 2003) "A large part of the text is dedicated to atmospheric dynamics. Radiation, climate and chemistry are treated each in two chapters. As given in the preface, the book originated from an 1989 italian popular science book and was eventually rewritten as a textbook along the lectures of the author in Environmental Science. ! This book ! offers a grand tour through a complex field." (C. Kessler, Meteorologische Zeitschrift, Vol. 12 (1), 2003)
