You can remove the unavailable item s now or we’ll automatically remove it at Checkout. Some background in mathematics, physics and basic atmospheric science is assumed. The discussions of the multifaceted aspects of basic frontal dynamics are based on illustrative analyses of a hierarchy of semi-geostrophic frontal models performed in physical, as opposed dynamicw geostrophic, coordinates.

This volume offers the first self-contained and comprehensive coverage of atmospheric fronts, providing the reader with an mankij of the multifaceted aspects of both surface and upper-level fronts.
