Atmospheric Thermodynamics: Elementary Physics and Chemistry by Gerald R. North,Tatiana L. Erukhimova

By Gerald R. North,Tatiana L. Erukhimova

This textbook offers a uniquely built-in technique in linking either physics and chemistry to the research of atmospheric thermodynamics. The e-book explains the classical legislation of thermodynamics, makes a speciality of numerous fluid structures, and, recognising the expanding significance of chemistry within the meteorological and weather sciences, devotes a bankruptcy to chemical thermodynamics consisting of an summary of photochemistry. even though scholars are anticipated to have a few history wisdom of calculus, common chemistry and classical physics, the publication offers set-aside refresher containers as worthy reminders. It includes over a hundred diagrams and graphs to complement the discussions, and the same variety of labored examples and routines, with recommendations incorporated on the finish of the booklet. it truly is excellent for a single-semester complicated direction on atmospheric thermodynamics, and may arrange scholars for higher-level synoptic and dynamics courses.
