Synoptic and Dynamic Climatology provides the first comprehensive account of the dynamical behaviour and mechanisms of the global climate system and its components, together with a modern survey of synoptic-scale weather systems in the tropics and extratropics, and of the methods and applications of synoptic climate classification. It is unrivalled in the scope and detail of its contents. The work is thoroughly up to date, with extensive bibliographies by chapter. It is illustrated with nearly 300 figures and plates.
*Part 1 provides an introduction to the global climate system and the space-time scales of weather and climate processes, followed by a chapter on climate data and their analysis
*Part 2 describes and explains the characteristics of the general circulation of the global atmosphere and includes the nature and causes of global teleconnection patterns
*Part 3 discusses synoptic weather systems in the extratropics and tropics and satellite-based climatologies of synoptic features. It also describes the applications of synoptic climatology and summarises current climatic research and its directions.

"Barry and Carleton's remarkable work shows just how far the discipline has come in the last couple of centuries, and provides a sound platform from which to speculate about future developments. The authors clearly have the combined experience and "gravitas neccessary to undertake such a task...In summary, this text represents a significant benchmark against which all future publications in sypnotic and dynamic climatology will undoubtedly be measured."
-International Journal of Climatology
..."the book's thorough review of climate dynamics is a major accomplishment and contribution to the literature.There are many things to like about [this book]. It's presentation is clear and straightforward, and it is very well written and organized...an invaluable reference source that will well serve the community...an excellent resource for university graduate education...an excellent introduction to any and all...successfully fills a major void for anyone interested in the many facets of climate dynamics-Jeffrey C. Rogers, Department of Geography, Ohio State University, Columbus, OH."
"The book provides good coverage of satellite-based climatology and its synoptic features. I highly recommend [it] on the basis of its style, accessibility, and well-organized content."
-Optics and Photonics News, November 2002
"This up to date work is an expansive summary of both the dynamic mechanics of the global climate system as well as tropical and extratropical synoptic weather systems."
-Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society
