Atmospheric Circulation Dynamics and Circulation Models - Springer Praxis Books (Hardback)Masaki Satoh (author)
- We can order this
This book describes the methods used to construct general circulation models (GCMs) of the atmosphere, and how such models perform in applications relating to the real climate and environmental systems. Part 1 summarizes the physical processes involved; Part 2 covers atmospheric structures; Part 3 outlines basic steps for constructing GCMs. Includes an appendix with basic data and mathematical formulae to enable readers to construct GCMs for themselves.

From the reviews:
"The book is a compendium on modern dynamics of global circulation, with strong emphasis on the atmospheric branch. ... this book represents a highly valuable account of the role the major physical and mathematical fluid dynamics concepts play in the complex climate system. This is a new, fresh and authentic survey of the atmospheric branch of geophysical fluid dynamics; as such it can be recommended to a wide audience." (M. Hantel, Meteorologische Zeitschrift, Vol. 15 (4), 2006)
