"The Emergence of Numerical Weather Prediction is the best single source available for understanding Richardson's forecast--better even than Richardson's own book.... Lynch's book is more than just a historical case study--he has provided an insider's guide to how weather prediction works.
Brian Hayes, American Scientist
"...Lynch serves as an experienced guide--a trusted leader and companion who possesses the macroscopic view of Richardson's work and adds detail from his pervasive knowledge of the subject. Beyond the knowledge, he has the gift of writing where hard mathematical fact is eloquently mixed with history and that occasional but welcome tincture of humor. ... [this author gives] us the solid theory that is masterfully blended with history. The subjects come to life and inspire us. [This book] has a special place on my bookshelf. It is a treasure, and I will refer to it often." - John M. Lewis, Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society
Lewis Fry Richardson dreamt that scientific weather prediction would become a practical reality. This book, first published in 2006, tells the story of Richardson's trial forecast, and the fulfilment of his dream of practical numerical weather forecasting. It will appeal to everyone in numerical weather forecasting, from researchers and graduate students to professionals.
