Physics of the Atmosphere

Atmospheric Boundary Layers: Nature, Theory and Applications to Environmental Modelling and Security (1st Edition.)

This collection of peer reviewed papers represents a concise, up-to-date summary of our current knowledge of planetary boundary layer (PBL) physics and parameterization. As such, it makes a major contribution to the interchange of knowledge and ideas between physicists, meteorologists and environmental modellers and sets out the...

Atmospheric aerosol properties (1st Edition.)

This book provides the first comprehensive analysis of how aerosols form in the atmosphere through in situ processes as well as via transport from the surface (dust storms, seas spray, biogenic emissions, forest fires etc.). Such an analysis has been followed by the consideration of both observation data (various field observati...

Vortex Dynamics, Statistical Mechanics, and Planetary Atmospheres

Vortex Dynamics, Statistical Mechanics, and Planetary Atmospheres introduces the reader with a background in either fluid mechanics or statistical mechanics to the modeling of planetary atmospheres by barotropic and shallow-water models. These potent models are introduced in both analytical and numerical treatments highlighting ...

Data Assimilation for Atmospheric, Oceanic and Hydrologic Applications (1st Edition)

This book presents the most recent achievements in data assimilation in Geosciences, especially in regards to meteorology, oceanography and hydrology. It spans both theoretical and applied aspects with various methodologies including variational, Kalman filter, maximum likelihood ensemble filter and other ensemble methods. Besid...

Infrasound Monitoring for Atmospheric Studies (1st Edition)

The infrasound field, the science of low-frequency acoustic waves, has developed into a broad interdisciplinary field encompassing academic disciplines of physics and recent technical and scientific developments.The infrasound network of the International Monitoring Network (IMS) of the CTBT-Organization has demonstrated its cap...

Controlled Atmosphere Storage of Fruits and Vegetables (Second)

The transportation and storage of fresh fruits and vegetables is an international operation where technology must be used to ensure that produce reaches the consumer in the best possible condition. The use of controlled atmosphere storage has great potential to reduce the postharvest use of chemicals, maintain nutritional qualit...

Interaction of Polymers with Polluted Atmospheres

Nitrogen oxides are common by-products of fossil fuel combustion and are one of the most significant types of air pollution. The nitric oxides react with UV radiation to form oxides of nitrogen, ozone and acids. The nitrogen oxides can have considerable impact of the life of polymers in the environment and can be responsible f...

Турбулентность и самоорганизация. Проблемы моделирования космических и природных сред

Монография посвящена разработке континуальных моделей турбулизованных природных сред – моделей, лежащих в основе постановок и численных расчетов задач, связанных с образованием, структурой и эволюцией различных астро- и геофизических объектов. Стохастические модельные подходы к соответствующим задачам рассмотрены как отражение п...

Air and Water: Trade Winds, Hurricanes, Gulf Stream, Tsunamis and Other Striking Phenomena

Air and water are so familiar that we all think we know them. Yet how difficult it remains to predict their behavior, with so many questions butting against the limits of our knowledge. How are cyclones, tornadoes, thunderstorms, tsunamis or floods generated — sometimes causing devastation and death? What will the weather be tom...
