Description: During the past decade, the science of dynamic meteorology has continued its rapid advance. The scope of dynamic meteorology has broadened considerably. Much of the material is based on a two-term course for seniors majoring in atmospheric sciences.This book 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 has added a companion website with MATLAB exercises and updated treatments of several key topics.Provides clear physical explanations of key dynamical principlesContains a wealth of illustrations to elucidate text and equations, plus end-of-chapter problemsHolton is one of the leading authorities in contemporary meteorology, and well known for his clear writing styleInstructor's Manual available to adopters NEW IN THIS EDITION A companion website with MATLAB® exercises and demonstrationsUpdated treatments on climate dynamics, tropical meteorology, middle atmosphere dynamics, and numerical prediction
