This revised text presents a cogent explanation of the fundamentals of meteorology, and explains storm dynamics for weather-oriented meteorologists. It discusses climate dynamics and the implications posed for global change. The Fourth Edition features a CD-ROM with MATLAB[registered] exercises and updated treatments of several key topics. Much of the material is based on a two-term course for seniors majoring in atmospheric sciences. It provides clear physical explanations of key dynamical principles.It contains a wealth of illustrations to elucidate text and equations, plus end-of-chapter problems. Holton is one of the leading authorities in contemporary meteorology, and well known for his clear writing style. An Instructor's Manual is available to adopters. The features new in this edition include: a CD-ROM with MATLAB[registered] exercises and demonstrations. It provides updated treatments on climate dynamics, tropical meteorology, middle atmosphere dynamics, and numerical prediction.
