Editorial Reviews

Review

'I highly recommend the Jacobson book for graduate students and professionals engaged in atmospheric modeling. They will find themselves frequently reaching for it as a reference. I certainly do.' Daniel J. Jacob, Atmospheric Environment

'It can be thoroughly recommended for those seeking a detailed treatise on the methodology of numerical modelling of atmospheric physical and chemical processes.' Roy Harrison, University of Birmingham

'... thoroughly recommended for those seeking a detailed treatise on the methodology of numerical modelling of atmospheric physical and chemical processes.' Roy Harrison, The Times Higher Education Supplement

'Overall this is a much needed text.' Contemporary Physics

' ... a good, up-to-date overview of the subject. It is a valuable textbook for graduate and upper-level undergraduate courses in atmospheric sciences and meteorology and will also be useful for courses in Earth and environmental sciences.' World Meteorological Organization

Book Description

This comprehensive text describes the atmospheric processes, numerical methods, and computational techniques required for a scientist to study successfully air pollution and meteorology. Computer modeling has become a powerful tool in modern atmospheric sciences, combining the disciplines of meteorology, physics, mathematics, chemistry, computer sciences, and, to a lesser extent, geology, biology, microbiology, and oceanographic sciences.

Format: Hardcover
This is Mr. Jacobson's latest update to his unique text on the mathematical modeling of the atmosphere. I think it would be impossible to fully utilize this book if you have not already mastered college level physics, organic chemistry, calculus, both ordinary and partial differential equations, and numerical analysis and have some knowledge of atmospheric science. There are plenty of computer projects spread throughout this book too, so I guess a further requirement would be familiarity with a programming language, preferably MATLAB. This book basically merges all of these fields together in order to develop numerical models of atmospheric behavior. In fact, it looks like it would be a tough read for anyone who is not a graduate student of both atmospheric science and mathematics. By cross-referencing this book's material with old textbooks I was able to get through chapter 5 OK, but I hit a wall when I got to the material on numerical solutions to partial differential equations in chapter six. My advice for scientists and engineers that need to know more about the atmosphere, meteorology, and the accompanying mathematics so that they can do some modeling but don't have the Ph.D. pedigree necessary to get the most out of this book might want to invest in two other particular volumes:
1. "Meteorology Today : An Introduction to Weather, Climate, and the Environment" by Ahrens. It is well-written and easy to read. Plus, it splits the difference between science-fair style books written for high schoolers and terse texts that read like a Ph.D. thesis. Buy it used without the CD or Infotrak and save yourself some money though!
2. "Meteorology for Scientists and Engineers : A Technical Companion Book to C. Donald Ahrens' Meteorology Today" by Stull.
