Publisher:Springer(2006-02-02 | ISBN-10: 0387302549 | PDF | 9.3 Mb | 318 pages
This introductory book on numerical weather prediction focuses on the spectral transform method, which is an important component for global weather forecasts at numerous operational centers. Therefore, it is an indispensable guide to the methods being used by nearly all major weather forecast centers in the United States, England, Japan, India, France, and Australia. The objectives of this book are to provide a systematic and sequential background for students, researchers, and operational weather forecasters in order to develop comprehensive weather forecast models. The chapter exercises allow it to be used as a graduate textbook for courses in meteorology as well.
