Editorial Reviews


Barry and Carleton's remarkable work shows just how far the discipline has come in the last couple of centuries, and provides a sound platform from which to speculate about future developments. The authors clearly have the combined experience and gravitas neccessary to undertake such a task...In summary, this text represents a significant benchmark against which all future publications in sypnotic and dynamic climatology will undoubtedly be measured.
–International Journal of Climatology

...the book's thorough review of climate dynamics is a major accomplishment and contribution to the literature.There are many things to like about [this book]. It's presentation is clear and straightforward, and it is very well written and organized...an invaluable reference source that will well serve the community...an excellent resource for university graduate education...an excellent introduction to any and all...successfully fills a major void for anyone interested in the many facets of climate dynamics-Jeffrey C. Rogers, Department of Geography, Ohio State University, Columbus, OH.
The book provides good coverage of satellite-based climatology and its synoptic features. I highly recommend [it] on the basis of its style, accessibility, and well-organized content.
–Optics and Photonics News, November 2002

This up to date work is an expansive summary of both the dynamic mechanics of the global climate system as well as tropical and extratropical synoptic weather systems.
–Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society

My advisor proscribed this book to me for a self study. I'm going to go ahead and say that the book itself is pretty awesome for all intents and purposes. However, reading this thing is one of the biggest chores of my life - and this is coming from someone so fascinated by meteorology and climatology they have super cell wallpapers and minute by minute updates of ENSO on their computer. I would highly advise others to use this book as a reference rather than reading it page for page (even better if you use it as a reference because each chapter ends with about 5 or 6 pages of the citations used to support the statements made within the various chapters. In essence this should make research easier for you if you need a quick database of sources to cross reference info or citing).

All in all, this is a great book, it's just a shame that it's so boring to read through.
