Global Atmospheric Circulations book.

This comprehensive work provides a balanced synthesis of observations and theories on the largest-scale circulations of the atmosphere. It is both an advanced-level text as well as a reference source. The work presents observational information first, then. The work presents observational information first, then theory. Many of the sections, however, are self-contained, and cross-referencing points out connections between the sections. Most derivations are presented in complete detail and descriptions of the northern and southern hemisphere flows are balanced.

Atmospheric circulation is the large-scale movement of air, and together with ocean circulation is the means by which thermal energy is redistributed on the surface of the Earth. The Earth's atmospheric circulation varies from year to year, but the large-scale structure of its circulation remains fairly constant

Global Atmospheric Circulations: Observations and Theory. The possible importance of this mechanism in providing appropriately distributed sources and sinks of relative zonal momentum (and therefore in prescribing the distribution with latitude of the surface zonal winds) is demonstrated with the aid of Widger's observations of the horizontal momentum transfer by eddies during January 1946.

This comprehensive work provides a balanced synthesis of observations and theories on the largest-scale circulations of the atmosphere. It is both an advanced-level text as well as a reference source. The work presents observational information first, then theory. Many of the sections, however, are self-contained, and cross-referencing points out connections between the sections. Most derivations are presented in complete detail and descriptions of the northern and southern hemisphere flows are balanced. The book is intended for students and researchers in atmospheric science. The author has also created a home page on the Internet devoted to the material in the book. It includes a set of errata sheets, a growing group of homework problems, and a place for updates and commentary beyond the material.
