Most widely held works by Peter Victor Hobbs
Atmospheric science : an introductory survey by John M Wallace ( Book )
31 editions published between 1977 and 2011 in English and held by 1,129 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Wallace and Hobbs' original edition of Atmospheric Science helped define the field nearly 30 years ago, and has served as the cornerstone for most university curriculums. Now students and professionals alike can use this updated classic to understand atmospheric phenomena in the context of the latest discoveries and technologies, and prepare themselves for more advanced study and real-life problem solving. Atmospheric Science, Second Edition, has been completely revamped in terms of content and appearance. It contains new chapters on atmospheric chemistry, the Earth system, climate, and the at
Aerosol--cloud--climate interactions by Peter Hobbs ( )
8 editions published in 1993 in English and Undetermined and held by 977 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Aerosol and clouds play important roles in determining the earth's climate, in ways that we are only beginning to comprehend. In conjunction with molecular scattering from gases, aerosol and clouds determine in part what fraction of solar radiation reaches the earth's surface, and what fraction of the longwave radiation from the earth escapes to space. This book provides an overview of the latest research on atmospheric aerosol and clouds and their effects on global climate. Subjects reviewed include the direct and indirect effects of aerosol on climate, the radiative properties of clouds and their effects on the Earth's radiation balance, the incorporation of cloud effects in numerical weather prediction models, and stratospheric aerosol and clouds
Basic physical chemistry for the atmospheric sciences by Peter Victor Hobbs ( Book )
25 editions published between 1995 and 2000 in English and held by 834 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Basic Physical Chemistry for the Atmospheric Sciences covers the fundamental concepts of chemical equilibria, chemical thermodynamics, chemical kinetics, solution chemistry, acid and base chemistry, oxidation-reduction reactions, and photochemistry. This new edition has been updated and revised from the first edition."--Jacket
Ice physics by Peter Victor Hobbs ( Book )
20 editions published between 1974 and 2010 in English and held by 454 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This monograph provides an account of the physics and chemistry of ice. Informed by research from physicists, chemists and glaciologists, the book places emphasis on the basic physical properties of ice, the modes of nucleation and growth of ice, and the interpretation of these phenomena in terms of molecular structure
Clouds, their formation, optical properties, and effects by Optical Properties, and Effects Symposium on Clouds: Their Formation ( Book )
7 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 351 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Introduction to atmospheric chemistry : a companion text to Basic physical chemistry for the atmospheric sciences by Peter Victor Hobbs ( Book )
17 editions published between 2000 and 2006 in English and held by 346 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Introduction to Atmospheric Chemistry is a review of the fundamentals of atmospheric chemistry. In ten relatively brief chapters, it reviews our basic understanding of the chemistry of the Earth's atmosphere and some outstanding environmental issues, including air pollution, acid rain, the ozone hole, and global change." "The book is designed to be a primary textbook for a first university course (undergraduate or graduate) in atmospheric chemistry and will be adopted in departments of atmospheric science, meteorology, environmental science, geophysics, and chemistry. It is also eminently suitable for self-instruction."--BOOK JACKET
Aerosols and climate by Symposium on aerosols and climate ( Book )

3 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Dynamical and microphysical structures of cyclonic storms in the Pacific Northwest : the CYCLES project ( Book )
1 edition published in 1976 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Airborne measurements and observations in cirrus clouds by Peter Victor Hobbs ( Book )
2 editions published in 1975 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Fourteen case studies of airborne measurements in cirrus clouds are described. For each case information is given on the location of the flight, the synoptic situation (with accompanying satellite IR and visible photographs), the types, sizes and mass concentrations of ice particles in the clouds, and the distribution of the ice mass concentration among particle sizes at different altitudes. From simultaneous measurements of ice mass concentrations and ice particle number concentrations, mean ice particle masses are derived: They range from about 0.3 to 30 micrograms. Low number concentrations of ice particles are generally associated with low ice mass concentrations and high number concentrations with high mass concentrations. The total ice mass concentrations in cirrus clouds generally increase with increasing temperature. Maximum values of the total ice mass concentration did not exceed the atmospheric water vapor content for water saturated conditions (about 0.1 and 1.0 g/cubic meter at -45 and -20C respectively) except when the cirrus originated from cumulonimbus tops
The dynamical and microphysical structure of an occluded front and its modification by orography by Peter Victor Hobbs ( Book )

Radar and airborne studies of rainbands associated with fronts in the Pacific Northwest by William M Davis ( Book )
2 editions published in 1975 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Several case studies of mesoscale rainbands associated with cyclonic storms in the Pacific Northwest are described. In one case study the following bands were identified: A 15 km wide band which preceded the warm front (and traveled faster than it); two warm-sector bands 40 km in width which moved parallel to the cold front; a warm-sector band which extended across the cold front; a narrow, intense band on the cold front (which produced some of the highest precipitation rates); a broad band just behind the cold front; ripple-like bands (possibly associated with roll-clouds) normal to the cold front and superimposed upon the broad band; and, two bands about 350 km behind the cold front. In another case study an occluded frontal system produced a narrow, intense rainband at the front and numerous post-frontal bands, fifteen of which are described in this report. The apparent effects of orography on dissipating a portion of a rainband are described. Also presented are airborne measurements of particle sizes in a 70 km wide rainband associated with an occluded front
