Increases in computer power and technology have rapidly advanced the applications of numerical modelling in environmental and earth sciences. The progress of numerical modelling in atmospheric, oceanic and geophysical sciences was the topic of an international conference held by the National Autonomous University of Mexico. The review articles and research papers in this volume constitute a wide-ranging account of modelling environmental and earth processes through a variety of numerical simulations. Sections are devoted to such topics as general circulation models and global change, methods of geophysical data assimilation, and mathematical and computational methods with geophysical applications. This book forms an excellent introduction and overview for graduate students as well as a critical update for researchers.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'... there are numerous excellent articles and the book gives a reasonable introduction to those researchers and graduate students who have some knowledge to the topic.' D. B. Ingham, Contemporary Physics
"A broad range of topics are discussed and, as stated above, the clarity of presentations is excellent due to the quality of the authors and, most probably to considerable efforts by the editors." Carl W. Kreitzberg, Bulletin of American Meteorological Society
"The main advantage of this book is that the qualtiy and brevity of the articles provide the reader with an up-to-date overview of many aspects of computational atmospheric and oceanic problems...I recommend this book to expand the perspective of graduate students and modelers who need a break from intense concentration on details of their own problem." Carl W. Kreitzberg, Bulletin of American Meteorological Society
