Applied Atmospheric Dynamics by Amanda H. Lynch

Book Description

The weather can be a cause of disruption, despair and even danger everywhere around the world at one time or another. Even when benign it is a source of constant fascination. Applied Atmospheric Dynamics connects this interest with the theoretical underpinnings of fluid dynamics; linking real physical events as diverse as Hurricane Katrina and the strong katabatic winds of Antarctica, with quantitative conceptual models of atmospheric behaviour. Assuming only basic calculus the book provides a physical basis for understanding atmospheric motions around the globe as well as detailing the advances that have led to a greater understanding of weather and climate. The accompanying supplementary CD-ROM features colour graphics, maps, databases, animations, project materials, as well as weather data tips.* Covers the standard theoretical principles of atmospheric dynamics and applies the theory to global real world examples* Assumes only non-vector based calculus* Features supplementary CD-ROM with electronic versions of all figures, case study data and possible term projects* An invaluable text for students of Meteorology, Atmospheric Science, Geography and Environmental Science A Solutions Manual is also available for this textbook on the Instructor Companion Site www.wileyeurope.com/college/lynch

Adaptive Governance and Climate Change by Amanda H. Lynch Adaptive Governance and Climate Change, Hardback (March 2010)

While there is undeniable progress in the acknowledgment of both the dangers of climate change and the importance of working to mitigate it, little has actually been done. This title argue that we need to take a different tack, moving away from reliance on centralized, top-down approaches and towards a flexible, multi-level approach.

Applied Atmospheric Dynamics by Amanda H. Lynch Applied Atmospheric Dynamics, Paperback (July 2006)

Applied Atmospheric Dynamics is strongly driven by descriptions of real world phenomena and ways in which these can be simplified. Part 1, Anatomy of a Cyclone, consists of 9 chapters that cover the fundamental theory of atmospheric dynamics, and comprise the bulk of any single semester course.
