The first half is suitable for senior undergraduates, and develops the physical, dynamical and mathematical concepts at the fundamental level. The second half of the book is aimed at more advanced students who are already familiar with the basics. Discussions are supplemented with schematics, weather maps and statistical plots of the atmospheric general circulation. Students often find the connection between theoretical dynamics and atmospheric observation somewhat tenuous, and this book demonstrates a strong connection between the key dynamics and real observations. 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 eBook,  Mak, Mankin, Atmospheric frontal dynamisc. He completed his undergraduate study in engineering physics at the University of Toronto, Canada, followed by graduate study in meteorology at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
They are uniquely important in weather forecasting since man,in meteorological phenomena are closely associated with them. This volume offers the first self-contained and comprehensive coverage of mnakin fronts, providing the reader with an understanding of the multifaceted aspects of both surface and upper-level fronts.

Cambridge University Press Pub date: The methods build from elementary kinematic models which can be understood with undergraduate mathematical methods, to sophisticated analysis of three-dimensional semigeostrophic systems which will interest and challenge graduate students and researchers alike.
Such analyses enable us to systematically and quantitatively delineate the physical nature of different types of fronts in a relatively straightforward manner. Statistical Physics of Particles. Computational Fluid Dynamics for Engineers.
Fundamentals of Engineering Plasticity. Atmospheric fronts are a product of interaction between planetary, synoptic, meso and small scales of motions.
