1-0 out of 5 stars Meteorology Today
I am so unsatisfied with my purchase. I paid 100$ for a used book, when I recieved it I noticed it's an International Student Edition, the one that you can't sale back in the United States. It doesn't tell you on the item description when you want to purchase it,so I didn't konw that's what I'm buying, whereas I know the price for used International Edition of Meteorology Today is around 10$ everywhere. This is not right and I should have not pay that much money for an International Edition version.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good Introductory Text
This is a nice introduction to meteorology.I got this book as a way to learn about the subject without taking a class.Too often, textbooks are overly lofty and formal in their treatment of subjects, but this isn't the case with this book.The language is understandable and the descriptions are clear, but it still offers enough detail to be suitable for an introductory class on the subject.

5-0 out of 5 stars Good refrence and information resource
I bought this book to help with my home hobby tracking the weather. Every thing has been nothing but helpfull. I love the photos and info on historical events even information on almanic data. Great for anyone intrested in taking up meterology. I love to read it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Intro text book
One of the best introduction to metrology I have read.Great for any anyone that is interested in the weather.Gives more information then average books that are found at local book stores.Also the on line tests help you know what you have learned.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Book
This is a great book. It was expensive (aren't all college textbooks?), but worth it.

As a beginning weather hobbyist with a new weather station, I have been looking at many weather books over the past couple months. I have been disappointed. Most seem geared to elementary school levels. A couple handfuls are for the general population, a few intermediate, and a couple handfuls are for more advanced hobbyists or professionals.

This book was one of the very few that I would strongly recommend. The information is great and presented very well. It is colorful and slick (yes, substance is more important than slickness, but this book has both).

I found the CD less than useful, so I tried it and removed it. You won't be missing anything, really. The book has it all. Just a great book. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars predictor for one's success in atmospheric sciences
I was trained in a classical program in atmospheric sciences in the sense that the atmosphere is a fluid hence the field being a sub-discipline of fluid mechanics is much emphasized. Holton's book is The Undergraduate Textbook for programs rooted in this understanding, in the US or internationally.
As an undergrad I was told that whether or not I was meant to stay in this field could be predicted by how well I performed in the class teaching Holton.
Now one of my duties is to teach dynamics to undergraduates in atmospheric sciences at a US land-grant university. I am however disappointed to find
out that most students coming to the dynamics class do not have such understanding. There is a tendency for students to forsake the hard-core
atmospheric sciences in favor of the marginal science in broadcasting meteorology. Holton's book is often not tolerated and considered too
'mathematical' (this happens to be the most common excuse students without any originality would use). I really would like to challenge
the students who have shunned (or plan to shun) Holton's book to think twice about how serious they are in pursuing a career in atmospheric
sciences before they make fair judgments about the value this book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Extraordinarily good text
I have to say I'm not sure if texts on atmospheric dynamics get better than this.Physics books in general, in fact, rarely provide an understanding of phenomena that is so concise, intuitive, and yet mathematically robust.I highly recommend it for children, as a gift, and for pleasure reading.

I also very seriously recommend it as a graduate textbook.Five stars all the way.

4-0 out of 5 stars feedback from rmd
it's a very analytic book; it's strongly related to anaysis. all the models are very well explaned; perhaps there is not a good relationship between models and pratical meteorology. phenomena are quite 'hidden' by equations, and only a good experienced physicist has the tools to extract the pratical approach deriving from model behaviours.
however it remains a 'must' for meteorologists.

Renato Medini

5-0 out of 5 stars The most exellent textbook in dynamics of the atmopshere
This book, in my opinion, is the most valuable book on dynamical aspects of the atmosphere insofar, especially from pedagogical point of views. As a foreign student, I understand well Holton's writings. Simple but very concise sentences, no wordy explanations. The first 3 chapters provide you the basic equations used inmeteorology and their common approximations. The next 5 chapters, to me, are the most interesting chapters. They give you wide range of knowledge from boundary layer, synoptic scale phenomena, to instabilities. Equations are of great usefulness because THEY bring into the light physical contents of the dynamics of the atmosphere. To me, any analytical equation and its explicit solution provide us a more complete understanding than numerical models do (because you never know some unpredictable behaviour of numerical solutions). So, try to understand carefully the simplest cases that Holton selected. This gives you a lot of deeper understandings. Chapters 9 to 11 provide the dynamics of meso- to large-scale circulations. You will see why the Hadley circulation descends around 35N in very clear way. However, simple Poisson eqn with the argument of "positive forcing, negative solution" that is applied throughout the text should be paid especial attention because this conclusion is not always true. As a whole, the contents, explanations and derivations will be very well constructed if you see the main point of each section.
To get to the heart of this book, read and derive all the skips in Holton's derivations. The gaps are not too hard to fill out in math but require some thinking. DO ALL OF THE EXERCISES at the end by yourself and you will double your knowledge. For any math-related physical book, transparent derivations are the first thing you should figure out, physical explanations will follow subsequently. From my experience, people tend to skip any chapter what they thought they knew it already. If you apply this method here, you may be in trouble. Read carefully the first 5 chapters, understand approximations used in the each situation. Simply apply equations without judgments of their assumptions will take you into the nightmare.

I give this book 5 stars +. It is really classic....

4-0 out of 5 stars you can't find an alternative.
when i was a student, i used to think, like many other reviewers, that the book is extremely dry. but now as a researcher in atmospheric-oceanic dynamics, i realise that the book is useful in explaining the most essential and elementary theories behind the dynamics one can encounter in meteorology or climate dynamics.

use the book as a reference and revision of elementary concepts. if you encounter a process you need to understand in your research, this is the book which will tell you the basics. then you go on and learn more from journal articles and your own research.

this new edition of the book, especially with the matlab models, makes studying with it more fun because you can visualise the dynamics and play with the m-files yourself. ... Read more

Editorial Review

Product Description
Ancient Meteorology discusses Greek and Roman approaches and attitudes to this broad discipline, which in classical antiquity included not only "weather", but occurrences such as earthquakes and comets that today would be regarded as geological, astronomical or seismological.
Given the predominance of farming in ancient society, it is not surprising that so much was written about the prediction and explanation of weather and how to respond to its cruelties and kindnesses. But the study of ancient meteorology was not only a practical matter. Poets, philosophers and physicians were also concerned with meteorology, posing important questions about the nature of the world and how we understand it, about the unity and character of the cosmos, and about the relationship between meteorology and the divine.
The author discusses the variety of ancient texts which communicate meteorological and scientific ideas, from Homeric epic and the didactic poetry of Hesiod, Aratus and Lucretius, to works such as Aristotle's Meteorology, the Hippocratic medical treatise on Airs, Waters, Places and Seneca's Natural Questions. The range and diversity of this literature highlights the question of scholarly authority in antiquity and illustrates how writers responded to the meteorological information presented by their literary predecessors.
The first book of its kind in English, Ancient Meteorology will be a valuable reference tool for classicists and those with an interest in the history of science. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars The best hazardous weather textbook available (Spring 2008).
As an earth and atmospheric science professor who specializes in natural hazards, I've seen probably every text available on this subject.For atmospheric hazards in particular, this is the best textbook I've used.It is easily accessible to second year meteorology undergraduates, and could even be somewhat useful in a graduate course.Although the text emphasizes the meteorological science of atmospheric hazards more than the societal impacts, I've found it to be a good balance for a hazardous weather course.This is a substantial textbook with information on nearly all atmospheric hazards, and it is accompanied by a well-produced CD-ROM (and website), which contain a lot of supplemental material and work very well in the classroom.The print size is large and there are many supporting diagrams that are easy to read.My only complaint is the complete lack of discussion of fog, which is a significant natural hazard.Otherwise, this is a superb textbook. ...

Product Description
General Circulation Models (GCMs) are rapidly assuming widespread use as powerful tools for predicting global events on time scales of months to decades, such as the onset of EL Nino, monsoons, soil moisture saturation indices, global warming estimates, and even snowfall predictions. While GCMs have been praised for helping to foretell the current El Nino and its impact on droughts in Indonesia, its full power is only now being recognized by international scientists and governments who seek to link GCMs to help them estimate fish harvests, risk of floods, landslides, and even forest fires.
Scientists in oceanography, hydrology, meteorology, and climatology and civil, ocean, and geological engineers perceive a need for a reference on GCM design. In this compilation of information by an internationally recognized group of experts, Professor Randall brings together the knowledge base of the forerunners in theoretical and applied frontiers of GCM development. General Circulation Model Development focuses on the past, present, and future design of numerical methods for general circulation modeling, as well as the physical parameterizations required for their proper implementation. Additional chapters on climate simulation and other applications provide illustrative examples of state-of-the-art GCM design.

Key Features
*Foreword by Norman Phillips
*Authoritative overviews of current issues and ideas on global circulation modeling by leading experts
*Retrospective and forward-looking chapters by Akio Arakawa of UCLA
*Historical perspectives on the early years of general circulation modeling

Product Description
This volume is a collection of selected papers of the Fourth Conference on East Asian and Western Pacific meteorology and climate. It covers remote sensing, atmospheric physics and chemistry, and the impact of aircraft emissions on atmospheric composition, as well as traditional topics like typhoons, rainstorms, monsoons and climate.

In July 1989 the first conference in this series took place in Hong Kong. It was run with the innovative bilingual approach, which allowed both Chinese- and English-speaking scientists from various regious of East Asia and across the Pacific to come together, and share and discuss their research. It also proved to be an invaluable networking opportunity leading to a rapid growth of interaction and cooperation among a diverse group of scientists in the decade that followed. The breadth and depth of the presentations at the Fourth Conference was a testimony to the coming of age of this series of conferences, marking the tenth anniversary of an endeavor that had a modest beginning.

Contents: Monsoon Observations: The Global Monsoon Systems (Q-C Zeng); The SCSMEX/GAME Sounding Networks and the Onset of the 1998 Asian Summer Monsoon (R H Johnson & P E Ciesielski); Relationship between the Planetary-scale Circulation over East Asia and the Intensity of the South Asian Summer Monsoon (J-J Xu & J C L Chan); Wind Changes over the Western Pacific (W T Liu et al.); Climate: Mechanism of ENSO-Monsoon Interaction During Mature-Decay Phases of ENSO Cycle (B Wang et al.); Impact of Land Surface Processes on Summer Climate (G-X Wu et al.); Impact of ENSO on the Variability of the Asian-Australian Monsoons (N-C Lau); Summary of COSMIC and Applications to Meteorology and Climate (R A Anthes & Y-H Kuo); Theoretical Studies: Tropical Tropospheric Biennial Oscillation and ENSO (C-P Chang & T Li); Typhoon: On the Formation of the Hurricane Eye (D-L Zhang et al.); Systematic Approach for Tropical Cyclone Track Forecasting with Dynamical Model Selective Consensus (R L Elsberry & L E Carr, III); Mesoscale Meteorology: Convection and Local Circulation under the Influence of Meiyu Front over Northern Taiwan (G T-J Chen); Air Pollution: Emission Inventory of Civil Aircrafts over Taiwan (P-S Lin et al.); and other papers. ...

This book is so cool.Things that I always wanted to know and not take a specific class for Meteorology.

1-0 out of 5 stars A Washout
The purpose of this book is to demystify weather.But while the book begins with a promising use of physical equations, these serve only to pad the book with test questions that are not further applied in the text to demystify (i.e., explain in causal terms) why things happen in the atmosphere.For example, there is no explanation of the Coriolis effect, and thus the wind patterns presented early on make no sense at all.There is a great deal of talk about what to do in the event of a thunderstorm, a hurricane, a tornado, and so on, but this information is readily available from any disaster center and elsewhere on the web.I came away from this book more mystified than when I opened it.A tempestuous disappointment. ...
