About this book

This book gives a broad, up to date treatment of the science of climate prediction. The topics covered include the use of atmospheric general circulation models (AGCMs) as tools for studying climate variability and predicting change, the design and analysis of AGCM experiments, the components of an AGCM (especially numerical techniques, representation of physical and chemical processes), and a selection of additional applications of AGCMs, including regional modelling, data assimilation and palaeoclimate modelling. All authors are leading experts in their areas, ensuring that the text is both authoritative and unique. It is suitable for advanced undergraduate and graduate students of atmospheric science and researchers in climate prediction and related fields.
