Informationen zum Autor

C. David Whiteman is a Staff Scientist at the United States Department of Energy's Pacific Northwest National Laboratory in Richland, Washington, where he does research in mountain meteorology, boundary layer meteorology, and air pollution meteorology. He also teaches meteorology at Washington State University, is a Certified Consulting Meteorologist, and serves as an editor of the Journal of Applied Meteorology.





"The book has very pleasant format, the text is nicely laid out, and the fiqures are, on the whole, superb, making use of excellent, didactic graphics and sketches ... represents a most useful contribution to our understanding of weather and climate processes in complex terrain. It is indeed are to encounter such a wealth of diffrent topic, particularly those that are dealt with in the final section"

Klappentext

Mountain Meteorology: Fundamentals and Applications offers first an introduction to the basic principles and concepts of mountain meteorology, then goes on to discuss their application in natural resources management. It includes over two hundred beautiful, full-color photographs, figures, and diagrams, as well as observable indicators of atmospheric processes--such as winds, temperature, and clouds--to facilitate the recognition of weather systems and events for a variety of readers. It is ideal for those who spend time in or near mountains and whose daily activities are affected by weather. As a comprehensive work filled with diverse examples and colorful illustrations, it is essential for professionals, scholars, and students of meteorology.
