Meteorology: For Scientists and Engineers
The Second Edition of Roland Stull's METEOROLOGY FOR SCIENTISTS AND ENGINEERS lets professors quantify the concepts in Ahren's METEOROLOGY TODAY, SEVENTH EDITION like never before. This book can serve as a technical companion to Ahren's text or as a stand-alone text. It provides the mathematical equations needed for a higher level of understanding of meteorology. The organization is mapped directly to the Ahrens book, making Stull's text a perfect companion. More than a lab manual or workbook, this text contains detailed math and physics that expand upon concepts presented in Ahrens' text, as well as numerous solved problems. This text demonstrates how to use mathematical equations (algebra, geometry, trigonometry, and finite differential equations) to explain the dominant characteristics of certain atmospheric phenomena and processes. Benefits: * NEW! Extensively updated and revised throughout, it now contains more problems and a more accessible writing style. * NEW! End-of-chapter material now includes numerical problems, Understanding and Critical Evaluation, Web-enhanced Questions, and Synthesis Questions. * NEW! The range of problem levels is increased, from easier to more difficult. * NEW! Beyond Algebra boxes provide students with experience in calculus further study. * NEW! A new Final Threads section ties the material in a new chapter to other lessons within the book. * More than a problems book, the extensive narrative provides students with understanding of the math and detail (graphs, diagrams, maps and boxes) that explain important weather events. * Focus Boxes feature important historical developments in meteorology to demonstrate the process of science. * Solved Example boxes provide students with worked out problems to show students a good example of the problem solving process.
