"...this book is an excellent reference for statisticians interested in dynamical systems and/or spatiotemporal processes in the environment." TECHNOMETRICS, Christopher K. Wikle
This comprehensive text and reference work on numerical weather prediction covers for the first time, not only methods for numerical modeling, but also the important related areas of data assimilation and predictability. It incorporates all aspects of environmental computer modeling and provides a clear discussion of the problems of predictability and chaos in dynamical systems and how they can be applied to atmospheric and oceanic systems. Professors and students of meteorology, atmospheric science, oceanography, hydrology and environmental science will find much to interest them in this book.
