When I heard about the subject of Meteorology in 1989 , I searched a lot for scientific explanations
with mathematical , physical and statistical laws and rules. This is a wonderful book from
wonderful authors with great scientific temper to explain the weather in a global general circulation way.
Since weather is not obey the geographical or political boundaries.
This book explains the climate more mathematics and physics way not in statistical way
