Thermal Physics of the Atmosphere, Hardback Book

Thermal Physics of the Atmosphere Hardback

Part of the Advancing Weather and Climate Science series



Thermal Physics of the Atmosphere offers a concise andthorough introduction on how basic thermodynamics naturally leadson to advanced topics in atmospheric physics. The book starts by covering the basics of thermodynamics and itsapplications in atmospheric science. The later chaptersdescribe major applications, specific to more specialized areas ofatmospheric physics, including vertical structure and stability,cloud formation, and radiative processes. The book concludeswith a discussion of non-equilibrium thermodynamics as applied tothe atmosphere.

This book provides a thorough introduction and invaluablegrounding for specialised literature on the subject. * Introduces a wide range of areas associated with atmosphericphysics * Starts from basic level thermal physics * Ideally suited for readers with a general physicsbackground * Self-assessment questions included for each chapter * Supplementary website to accompany the book
