Middle atmosphere dynamics by David G Andrews( Book )

13 editions published between 1987 and 1999 in English and Undetermined and held by 338 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate students in atmospheric, oceanic, and climate science, Atmosphere, Ocean and Climate Dynamics is an introductory textbook on the circulations of the atmosphere and ocean and their interaction, with an emphasis on global scales. It will give students a good grasp of what the atmosphere and oceans look like on the large-scale and why they look that way. The role of the oceans in climate and paleoclimate is also discussed. The combination of observations, theory and accompanying illustrative laboratory experiments sets this text apart by making i
Analysis of the Viking Lander 1 surface wind vector for sols 45 to 376 final technical report by Conway B Leovy( Book )

3 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 76 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Thermal convection in the atmospheric boundary layer by Conway B Leovy( Book )

4 editions published between 1965 and 1968 in English and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lag correlations between Arctic atmospheric heat loss and Northern Hemisphere circulation indices by R. E Huschke( Book )

4 editions published in 1968 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A time series of 'atmospheric heat loss' parameters for the Arctic is calculated using 5 years of radiosonde and cloud data. Thirty-day deviations from the mean annual cycle of atmospheric heat loss are lag-correlated with corresponding anomalies of several indices of northern hemisphere circulation. Resulting correlation coefficients are small but statistically significant, interesting, and as yet, unexplained. (Author)
Atmospheric ozone : an analytic model for photochemistry in the presence of water vapor by Conway B Leovy( Book )

3 editions published between 1966 and 1968 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A numerical general circulation experiment for the atmosphere of Mars by Conway B Leovy( Book )

1 edition published in 1966 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Energetics of the middle atmosphere by Conway B Leovy( Book )

2 editions published in 1967 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The middle atmosphere is considered to be the region from 25 to 105 km including the middle and upper stratosphere, mesosphere, and mesosphere-thermosphere transition region up to the turbopause. In the lower portion, up to 80 km, energy inputs and losses are predominantly due to absorption and emission of radiation by ozone, carbon dioxide, and water vapor, with solar absorption by ozone and emission by carbon dioxide playing the major role. Recent computations of heating and cooling rates due to these gases have not led to essential changes, but uncertainties remain. The principle ones are due to uncertainty in the concentrations of water vapor and ozone
Note on thermal properties of Mars by Conway B Leovy( Book )

1 edition published in 1965 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Photochemical destabilization of gravity waves near the mesopause by Conway B Leovy( Book )

2 editions published in 1965 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A number of possible interaction mechanisms between internal gravity waves and radiative and photochemical processes at altitudes from 80 to 120 km are considered. The heat of recombination of atomic oxygen and absorption of solar radiation by ozone are both found to contribute to wave amplification. Growth rates are slow under normal conditions but can become significant if the atomic oxygen concentration below 100 km is increased above its normal values. This could be brought about by large-scale descending motion or by increased mixing near the mesopause. (Author)
Radiative-convective equilibrium calculations for a two-layer Mars atmosphere by Conway B Leovy( Book )

1 edition published in 1966 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Some aspects of the circulation of Mars by Conway B Leovy( Book )

1 edition published in 1965 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The effect of surface temperature variations on the polar night jet by Conway B Leovy( Book )

2 editions published in 1961 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The possibility of differential heating in the ozone layer due to differences in ground and lower troposphere temperatures as a mechanism for producing the observed stationary perturbations of the polar night jet was examined. It is found that this mechanism is not likely to be the cause of the disturbances. (Author)
