Paperback / softback
Cambridge University Press
UK Publication Date

An Introduction to Atmospheric Physics presents a broad coverage of atmospheric physics, including atmospheric thermodynamics, radiative transfer, atmospheric fluid dynamics and elementary atmospheric chemistry. Armed with an understanding of these topics, the interested student will be able to grasp the essential physics behind issues of current concern, such as the enhanced greenhouse effect and associated questions of climate change, and the Antarctic ozone hole and global ozone depletion, as well as more familiar processes such as the formation of raindrops and the development of weather systems. This book is intended as an introductory text for intermediate to advanced undergraduates studying atmospheric physics as part of physics, meteorology or environmental science courses. It will also be useful for graduate students studying atmospheric physics for the first time and for students of applied mathematics, physical chemistry and engineering who have an interest in the atmosphere.

Here's what you say about us...

'This textbook provides a concise, accurate and elegant introduction to scientific study of the Earth's atmosphere.' World Meteorological Organization Bulletin

'… well-written and clearly organized … covers a broad survey of topics.' George J. Hakim, EOS

'David Andrews has crafted a thoughtful introductory text on atmospheric physics that provides a comprehensive and yet easy to understand treatment of the fundamental physics underlying the broad field of atmospheric sciences.' Steven Businger, University of Hawaii

'… an up-to-date overview of the field, should be a strong candidate for undergraduate level classes that introduce the subject of atmospheric physics, and it is a worthy addition for the library of any scientist or engineer interested in the filed of atmospheric sciences.' Steven Businger, Journal of Geodesy

'… covers the three fundamental pillars of atmospheric physics - thermodynamics, radiation and fluid mechanics … the strength of this book is the way it develops the fundamental ideas of atmospheric physics without introducing too much extraneous detail … I expect this book to become a standard text for many atmospheric physics courses in future years.' Geraint Vaughan, Teaching Earth Sciences

'… a good textbook for a thorough introduction to atmospheric physics.' Jrg Matschullat, Environmental Geology
