"In the third edition of The Physics of Atmospheres, John Houghton has revised his acclaimed textbook to bring it completely up-to-date. The first two editions received excellent reviews, and the new edition will again prove to be invaluable as a text for students of atmosphere science.". "The Physics of Atmospheres provides a comprehensive and concise description of the physical processes governing the structure and the circulation of the atmosphere. Simple physical models are constructed by applying the principles of classical thermodynamics, radiative transfer and fluid mechanics, together with analytical and numerical techniques. These models are applied to real planetary atmospheres. In this new edition, chapters have been introduced on topics of strong contemporary interest such as chaos and atmospheric predictability and climate and climate change. The chapters on global observation (especially through remote sensing) and numerical modelling have also been substantially extended, and all parts of the book have been updated.". "Like its predecessors, this new edition will be an essential textbook for advanced undergraduate and graduate courses in meteorology, atmospheric physics, remote sensing, climate science, environmental science, and planetary science. Researchers and professionals in atmospheric physics and meteorology will also find it a state-of-the-art review of their subjects."--BOOK JACKET.
