Midlatitude Synoptic Meteorology - Dynamics, Analysis and Forecasting

by Gary Lackmann

Midlatitude Synoptic Meteorology - Dynamics, Analysis and Forecasting Synopsis

The past decade has been characterized by remarkable advances in meteorological observation, computing techniques, and data-visualization technology. However, the benefit of these advances can only be fully realized with the introduction of a systematic, applied approach to meteorological education that allows well-established theoretical concepts to be applied to modernized observational and numerical datasets. This textbook, which covers synoptic-dynamic meteorology, synoptically driven mesoscale phenomena, weather forecasting, and numerical weather prediction, links theoretical concepts to modern technology and facilitates the meaningful application of concepts, theories, and techniques using real data. As such, it will both serve those planning careers in meteorological research and weather prediction and provide a template for the application of modern technology in a classroom and laboratory setting.

Midlatitude Synoptic Meteorology - Dynamics, Analysis and Forecasting Press Reviews

An excellent synthesis of modern midlatitude synoptic-dynamic meteorology that will serve advanced undergraduate and graduate atmospheric science students as well as working scientists and forecasters very well. --Lance Bosart, University at Albany, State University of New York Lackmann has given students of meteorology the gift of an outstanding, up-to-date textbook on weather analysis and forecasting. He combines the building blocks of theory with modern observations and modeling to provide an exceptionally clear understanding of the workings of our atmosphere. --Steven Businger, University of Hawaii An excellent synthesis of modern midlatitude synoptic-dynamic meteorology that will serve advanced undergraduate and graduate atmospheric science students as well as working scientists and forecasters very well. --Lance Bosart, University at Albany, State University of New York Lackmann has given students of meteorology the gift of an outstanding, up-to-date textbook on weather analysis and forecasting.
