"This well-received and comprehensive textbook on atmospheric processes and numerical methods has been thoroughly revised and updated. The new edition includes a wide range of new numerical techniques for solving problems in areas such as cloud microphysics, ocean-atmosphere exchange processes, and atmospheric radiative properties. It also contains improved descriptions of atmospheric physics, dynamics, radiation,  Read more...
