Description du produit

Revue de presse

'The first edition is a classic. As a textbook it is unequalled in breadth, depth and lucidity. It is the single volume that I recommend to every one of my students in atmospheric science. The new edition improves over the previous edition, if that is possible at all, in three aspects: beautiful illustrations of global processes … from newly available satellite data, new topics of current interest … and a new chapter on the influence of the ocean on the atmosphere. These changes make the book more useful as a starting point for studying climate change.' Professor Yuk Yung, California Institute of Technology

'… an informative and insightful tour through the contemporary issues in the atmospheric sciences as they relate to climate … a valuable resource for educators and researchers alike, serving both as a textbook for the graduate or advanced undergraduate student with a physics or mathematics background and as an excellent reference and refresher for practitioners … a welcome addition to the field.' Professor Darin W. Toohey, University of Colorado, Boulder

'… an essential reference for researchers and graduate and advanced undergraduate students who wish to have a rigorous source for a wide range of fundamental atmospheric science topics. Atmospheric and climate scientists will find this book to be an essential one for their libraries.' Associate Professor Hampton N. Shirer, Pennsylvania State University

'I recommend [this book] as a foundation for anyone who wants to do research on the important open questions about aerosols, radiation, biogeochemistry, and ocean-atmosphere coupling.' Professor Jim McWilliams, University of California, Los Angeles

Présentation de l'éditeur

Murry Salby's new book provides an integrated treatment of the processes controlling the Earth-atmosphere system, developed from first principles through a balance of theory and applications. This book builds on Salby's previous book, Fundamentals of Atmospheric Physics. The scope has been expanded into climate, with the presentation streamlined for undergraduates in science, mathematics and engineering. Advanced material, suitable for graduate students and as a resource for researchers, has been retained but distinguished from the basic development. The book provides a conceptual yet quantitative understanding of the controlling influences, integrated through theory and major applications. It leads readers through a methodical development of the diverse physical processes that shape weather, global energetics and climate. End-of-chapter problems of varying difficulty develop student knowledge and its quantitative application, supported by answers and detailed solutions online for instructors.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 An invaluable reference 1 octobre 2016
Par J. A May - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I agree with kikeo58's review and will only add a few point's. I like the textbook because it fills in the details needed to understand how the atmosphere (and climate models) work in a very complete and understandable way. I've been a scientist (in another field) for 42 years and I've come to study climate and weather very recently. This is the reference I have needed to understand published articles. It is truly an invaluable and up-to-date reference. While it is true that many of the differential equations are for non-realistic scenarios, he does lay out the limitations in the text. I like this because often these same limited and overly constrained equations are used, but not explained adequately in the journal articles. You can be fooled without a text like this.

Great book, although it is a little difficult for me. It is math/physics-extensive. I recommend it to those who have background with math/physics, including fluid dynamics.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Comprehensive but Hard to Read 4 juillet 2016
Par Scott Brooks - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I find this book kind of a disappointment.

1 the format of the book makes it hard to read. It’s bad enough that it has the classic black on white printing (human eyes would find dark red on a light tan easier to read and less straining) but it’s also in small print. It would have been better to have this book in pdf format. My eyes would continuously water when trying to read it.

2 Salby talks in very scientific terms and uses heavy math throughout the book. It’s good for seasoned scientists but difficult for those who are even experience with the science.

3 Salby uses the classic theory of the greenhouse effect even though he covers it comprehensively, it didn’t answer some of the problems I have run across with the theory.

4 It would be nice if a glossary was included to define some of the scientific terms.

My critique is based on one chapter of the book involving radiative transfer. Overall the book is long and very comprehensive. Scientists would find it enlightening.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent introductory reference 1 juin 2014
Par kikeo58 - Publié sur

I read the variety of reviews before purchasing this book. In the end I chose it because the reviews were mixed. That is representative of the field itself. The book presents a lot of information that is necessary to understand the atmosphere.
Some information is simple and abstract and has poor relevance to the actual atmosphere. And some is very complex which conveys the real nature of the atmosphere. The book progresses from the simple erroneous concepts to the more complex and more accurate concepts. Thus you will find it contradicts itself. Let me emphasize this is the standard pedagogical progression not a criticism of this particular book. You need both (or actually all) to relate to the the spectrum of ideas presented in scientific and public literature. That means you must read through the whole book and not stop in the simplified material.

In particular, it is important to recognize the overly simplified differential equations that are reflected in international standards on the atmosphere. They are the source of irrational misinformation where the defining assumptions are neglected. Not only are they of low accuracy but they lead to incorrect understanding.

One visible area is the global mean temperature which is quoted so often in the hockey stick model of the climate.
This book presents a more in depth presentation of the localized nature of observed global mean temperature. That oxymoron gives caution to the simplified understanding of climate. That in turn is the area of most disagreement in this field
and the source of many negative reviews of this book.

Hopefully, you will realize that this neither confirms or denies climate change. It provides more information to better understand it.
That is a valuable resource for any library.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The bible of atmospheric physics 2 avril 2014
Par Morgan Wright - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
This is the bible for all that is currently known about the atmosphere. The math is a little over my head unless I study it carefully, but the way the information is organized, you can see the author has had a lot of experience in teaching, so reading this book is like taking a course in a classroom. If I want to know something about the atmosphere, this book is my first source, not any of the politically charged blogs on the internet, most of which are government funded propaganda sites like Skeptical Science and Real Climate. If you want to know the actual truth, get a text book. The graphs are brilliant and the color plates should be framed and hung on your wall. Textbooks like this cost a lot more, but you get what you pay for.
