Introduction to atmospheric modelling

By: Steyn, Douw G
Series: AIMS Library of Mathematical SciencesPublisher: Cambridge Cambridge University Press 2015Description: ix, 106 p.ISBN: 9781107499799Subject(s): Atmospheric models | Mathematical models | Atmospheric scienceDDC classification: 551.5011 Summary: Introduction to Atmospheric Modelling explores the power of mathematics to help us understand complex atmospheric phenomena through mathematical modelling. The author has thoughtfully chosen a path into and through the subject that gives the reader a glimpse of the dynamics underlying phenomena ranging from a sea breeze through mid-latitude cyclonic disturbances to Rossby waves, mainly through the lens of scaling analysis. Written for students with backgrounds in mathematics, physics and engineering, this book will be a valuable resource as they begin studying atmospheric science. • Introduces young researchers to the beauty and wonder of atmospheric phenomena • Shows students what can be achieved with mathematical tools • Provides a firm foundation for further study in atmospheric science http://www.cambridge.org/catalogue/catalogue.asp?isbn=9781107499799
