To encourage the reader to follow in detail the mathematical developments, the derivations are complete leaving out only the most elementary steps. While most meteorological textbooks only present equilibrium thermodynamics, this book also introduces the linear theory of nonequilibrium and provides the necessary background for more advanced studies. p. cm Includes bibliographical references and index.

Wilford Zdunkowski received . degrees from the University of Utah and was awarded a P. in meteorology from the University of Munich in 1962. He then returned to the Department of Meteorology at the University of Utah, where he was later made Professor of Meteorology. In 1977, he took up a professorship, at the Universität Mainz, where for twenty years he taught courses related to the topics presented in this book. This book has been written for students of meteorology and of related sciences at the senior and graduate level. The second part, Thermodynamics of the Atmosphere, will appear shortly. To a considerable degree we have based our book on the excellent lecture notes of Professor Karl Hinkelmann on various topics in dynamic meteorology, including Prandtl-layer theory and turbulence.

Wilford Zdunkowski, Andreas Bott. The first part of the book presents the mathematical tools needed for a thorough understanding of the topics covered in the second. These topics include kinematics of the atmosphere; inertial and dynamic stability; turbulent systems; and novel weather prediction methods with potential for extending the forecasting range.

This page intentionally left blank. Dynamics of the atmosphere: a course in theoretical meteorology. Dynamics of the Atmosphere is a textbook with numerous exercises and solutions, written for senior undergraduate and graduate students of meteorology and related sciences. The second part of the book begins with the derivation of the equation describ-ing the atmospheric motion on the rotating earth, followed by several chapters that consider the kinematics of the atmosphere and introduce vorticity and circulation theorems.

While most meteorological textbooks only present equilibrium thermodynamics, this book also introduces the linear theory of non-equilibrium and provides the necessary background for more advanced studies. The authors start by introducing the equations that describe the basic laws of thermodynamics and entropy and go on to discuss the thermodynamics of blackbody radiation, thermodynamic potentials, and the constitutive equations of irreversible fluxes . Answers to all the exercises are given at the end of the book.
