This new and completely updated edition offers valuable, practical approaches to radiative transfer for students and researchers. It provides a basic understanding of the role of radiation in climate and climate change and teaches how to use radiative transfer tools to analyze data from ground-based, airborne and satellite sensors.
Focusing on both theory and practice, this comprehensive account of the modeling methods used in atmospheric chemistry research will be of interest to graduate students and professionals in atmospheric sciences and engineering. Introductory chapters and reviews of the relevant mathematics make this a one-stop resource accessible to a broad readership.
This book provides a unified and comprehensive treatment of the atmosphere and ocean that blends classical results with modern interpretations. As well as updating existing chapters, this full-color second edition includes new chapters on tropical dynamics, El Nino, the stratosphere and gravity waves, for advanced students and researchers.
Understanding the composition and chemistry of the Earth's atmosphere is essential to global ecological and environmental policy making and research.
A large part of the world s coastlines consists of sandy beaches and dunes that may undergo dramatic changes during storms. Extreme storm events in some cases dominate the erosion history of the coastline and may have dramatic impacts on densely populated coastal areas.

How do meteorologists design forecasts for the next day's, the next week's, or the next month's weather? Are some forecasts more likely to be accurate than others, and why? Making Sense of Weather and Climate takes readers through key topics in atmospheric physics and presents a cogent view of how...
This monograph is the outcome of an American Geophysical Union Chapman Conference on longitude and hemispheric dependence of ionospheric space weather, including the impact of waves propagating from the lower atmosphere.
"As the nations economic activities, security concerns, and stewardship of natural resources become increasingly complex and globally interrelated, they become ever more sensitive to adverse impacts from weather, climate, and other natural phenomena. For several decades, forecasts with lead times of a few days for weather and other environmental phenomena...
