The Second Edition of Roland Stull's METEOROLOGY FOR SCIENTISTS AND ENGINEERS lets professors quantify the concepts in Ahren's METEOROLOGY TODAY, SEVENTH EDITION like never before. This book can serve as a technical companion to Ahren's text or as a stand-alone text. It provides the mathematical equations needed for a higher level of understanding of meteorology. The organization is mapped directly to the Ahrens book, making Stull's text a perfect companion. More than a lab manual or workbook, this text contains detailed math and physics that expand upon concepts presented in Ahrens' text, as well as numerous solved problems. This text demonstrates how to use mathematical equations (algebra, geometry, trigonometry, and finite differential equations) to explain the dominant characteristics of certain atmospheric phenomena and processes.

The essential guide to the history, current trends, and the future of meteorology This comprehensive review explores the evolution of the field of meteorology, from its infancy in 3000 bc, through the birth of fresh ideas and the naming of the field as a science, to the technology boom, to today. The Evolution of Meteorology reveals the full story of where meteorology was then to where it is now, where the field is heading, and what needs to be done to get the field to levels never before imagined. Authored by experts of the topic, this book includes information on forecasting technologies, organizations, governmental agencies, and world cooperative projects. The authors explore the ancient history of the first attempts to understand and predict weather and examine the influence of the very early birth of television, computers, and technologies that are useful to meteorology. This modern-day examination of meteorology is filled with compelling research, statistics, future paths, ideas, and suggestions. This vital resource: Examines current information on climate change and recent extreme weather events Starts with the Ancient Babylonians and ends with the largest global agreement of any kind with the Paris Agreement Includes current information on the most authoritative research in the field of meteorology Contains data on climate change theories and understanding, as well as extreme weather statistics and histories This enlightening text explores in full the history of the study of meteorology in order to bring awareness to the overall path and future prospects of meteorology.

Third Edition, by Lee M. Grenci and Jon M. Nese is not a typical meteorology text. This book not only teaches your students the basic concepts of meteorology, but also applies these concepts to hands-on laboratory exercises, thus promoting a deeper understanding of how the atmosphere works. Nearly 75% of this third edition of A World of Weather is new. The accessibility of forecasting tools on the Internet and the goal of life-long learning can be unified to give your students the opportunity to develop their skills in basic weather forecasting. A World of Weather contains two new chapters on weather forecasting and numerical weather prediction that will allow your students to assume the role of apprentice forecaster. These chapters are unique and revolutionary in the arena of general education in meteorology. Moreover, they are congruent with the authors resolute philosophy that students should be challenged while learning science. Also new to this edition is a revolutionary treatment of the cyclone model. For the first time in a basic text on meteorology, the authors present an understandable and coherent treatment of the cyclone model based on the Horatio Alger-like concept of self development, a positive feedback between cold advection, the strength of the 500 mb trough and the deepening surface flow. The new edition of A World of Weather more completely helps students to become critical weather consumers while setting the stage for life-long learning. The new edition of A World of Weather includes: * Laboratory exercises in each chapter that use real data so students can relate principles they learn to what happens in the atmosphere * Case studies of news-making weather events such as the Great Flood of 1993, Hurricane Andrew, and the Blizzard of 1993 * Revolutionary treatment of the cyclone model * New and complementary material on isoplething weather data * Full color illustrations providing enhanced visuals of subject m

The first book of its kind in English, Ancient Meteorology discusses Greek and Roman approaches and attitudes to this broad discipline, which in classical antiquity included not only 'weather', but occurrences such as earthquakes and comets that today would be regarded as geological, astronomical or seismological. The range and diversity of this literature highlights the question of scholarly authority in antiquity and illustrates how writers responded to the meteorological information presented by their literary predecessors. Ancient Meteorology will be a valuable reference tool for classicists and those with an interest in the history of science.

The Weather Experiment

The Pioneers Who Sought to See the Future
Author: Peter Moore
Publisher: Farrar, Straus and Giroux
ISBN: 0374711275
Category: Science
Page: 416
View: 3089
A history of weather forecasting, and an animated portrait of the nineteenth-century pioneers who made it possible By the 1800s, a century of feverish discovery had launched the major branches of science. Physics, chemistry, biology, geology, and astronomy made the natural world explicable through experiment, observation, and categorization. And yet one scientific field remained in its infancy. Despite millennia of observation, mankind still had no understanding of the forces behind the weather. A century after the death of Newton, the laws that governed the heavens were entirely unknown, and weather forecasting was the stuff of folklore and superstition. Peter Moore's The Weather Experiment is the account of a group of naturalists, engineers, and artists who conquered the elements. It describes their travels and experiments, their breakthroughs and bankruptcies, with picaresque vigor. It takes readers from Irish bogs to a thunderstorm in Guanabara Bay to the basket of a hydrogen balloon 8,500 feet over Paris. And it captures the particular bent of mind—combining the Romantic love of Nature and the Enlightenment love of Reason—that allowed humanity to finally decipher the skies.
