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 new edition features a companion website 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. Key features: lead author Gregory J. Hakim, a major contributor to the 4th Edition, succeeds James Holton (deceased) on this 5th Edition; provides clear physical explanations of key dynamical principles; contains a wealth of illustrations to elucidate text and equations, plus end-of-chapter problems; and "Instructor's Manual" available to adopters.
