Hardcover Verified Purchase. I'm a retired chemist and I found this a very good book for someone like me who hasn't studied Atmospheric Science. I believe it is very faithful to the current understanding and method of studying Atmospheric Science. However the Climate Science, especially the Mathematical Treatment of Climate Sensitivity was not explained very well.
And in fact the math doesn't really work if you examine the equations closely. I'm confident this is how they teach it, but if you plug in other values for feedback factors the answers blow up and make no sense. One person found this helpful. Verified Purchase.
This book gave me nightmares in college. Few weeks ago, I pulled it out to browse through my misery and left it on the floor by the bed and when I got home my dog decided he wanted to read a few pages - I still love my dog.
But I wasn't too pleased so I ordered a new one and it was just like the original I used in school. Actually they'll probably still be using this book in colleges for the next yrs. I am a retired scientist who never studied meteorology until now. This book is absolutely perfect for readers who prefer to see the equations and have at least some background in the physical sciences. Perfect book for my daughter getting her masters in Meteorology.
She said it is the book most referenced throughout her studies. She said it will remain part of her reference library throughout her career. This book is a very comprehensive book that introduces a student to all basic concepts in Atmospheric Sciences. Very well written and excellent for self study! With colorful figures and applied theory in examples, readers can be easily familiar with the content of the book.
This book is extremely useful for both undergraduate and graduate majoring in Atmospehric Sciences. Book is in total good shape, delivery is also fast.
Price is really low. Very satisfying. Great book. See all 33 reviews.
