Categories:
  • Science and Technology / Geoscience / Atmospheric Science
This course begins with a study of the role of dynamics in the general physics of the atmosphere, the consideration of the differences between modeling and approximation, and the observed large-scale phenomenology of the atmosphere. Only then are the basic equations derived in rigorous manner. The .. show the rest of description.
