Physical Foundations of Continuum Mechanics. Mathematical Modeling of Earth’s Dynamical Systems. This textbook is an invaluable asset for courses in atmospheric dynamics for advanced students and researchers in atmospheric science, ocean science, weather forecasting, environmental science, and applied mathematics. Atmospheric Frontal Dynamics is the first book to present a self-contained and comprehensive coverage of the ubiquitous synamics and ma fronts, which are boundaries separating two air masses of different densities.

Overall rating No ratings yet 0. Principles of Continuum Mechanics.

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 to geostrophic, coordinates. Mankin Mak is Manmin Emeritus in the Department of Atmospheric Sciences at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, where he has taught and researched on atmospheric dynamics for many years.

Publisher Synopsis ‘The fluid dynamical theory of fronts is one of the most elegant mathematical models in atmospheric science. Such atmospherkc enable us to systematically and quantitatively delineate the physical nature of different types of fronts in a relatively straightforward manner. Wave Interactions As a Seismo-acoustic Source. Introduction to Geophysical Fluid Dynamics.

With its elegant mathematics and application to real world weather systems, the material will be a fine intellectual stimulus for students [studying mathematics, fluid dynamics or meteorology]. You submitted the following rating and review. Search WorldCat Find items in libraries near you.
