Description

Global Physical Climatology is an introductory text devoted to the fundamental physical principles and problems of climate sensitivity and change. Addressing some of the most critical issues in climatology, this text features incisive coverage of topics that are central to understanding orbital parameter theory for past climate changes, and for anthropogenic and natural causes of near-future changes--

Readership

Junior- and senior-level students in departments of atmospheric science or geophysics, in courses in climate physics, physical climatology, or climate dynamics.

Quotes and reviews

"Few textbooks presently give such a comprehensive and clear account of the complexities of the climate system. Throughout, the book is very readable and I recommend it thoroughly."
@source:--Grant Bigg in Weather
"...contains useful information on all aspects of physical climatology from boundary layer processes to global models. It has a good index which allows ready access to specific subjects...will be useful to students wanting more than a descriptive approach to climatology."
