About this book


Part of the excitement in boundary-layer meteorology is the challenge associated with turbulent flow - one of the unsolved problems in classical physics. The flavor of the challenges and the excitement associated with the study of the atmospheric boundary layer are captured in this textbook.

The work should also be considered as a major reference and as a review of the literature, since it includes tables of parameterizations, procedures, field experiments, useful constants, and graphs of various phenomena under a variety of conditions.

The author envisions, and has catered for, a heterogeneity in the background and experience of his readers. Therefore, the book is useful to beginning graduate students as well as established scientists.

'The book is a welcome addition to the boundary-layer literature, one of the first truly comprehensive texts... ' (Boundary-Layer Meteorology)

'I found, in fact, that within hours of the book's arrival, I had consulted it twice..' (AMS Bulletin, 1989)

'Stull's book is destined to be the overwhelmingly favorite text and general reference in atmospheric turbulence and boundary layer physics during the1990s'. (AMS Bulletin, 1990)

'.. a good introductory textbook which is likely to be well used in the coming years.'  (Quarterly Journal of the Royal Meteorological Society)
