The text unifies four major subject areas: These fundamental areas serve as cornerstones of modern atmospheric research on environmental issues like global change and ozone depletion.
Physical concepts underlying these subject areas are developed from first principles, providing a self-contained text for students and scholars from diverse backgrounds. The presentation is Lagrangian single-body problems in perspective, with a balance of theory and application. Each chapter includes detailed and extensive problems; selected answers are provided, as are appendices of various constants.
The text requires a thorough foundation in calculus.

Review quote “[In the opinion of the reviewer] the book is an example of a very well conceived and written textbook General layout of the material is clear, illustrations are well selected and from a didactic point of view the aim of unification of traditional physical and dynamical meteorology has been successfully achieved. It can be recommended as a basic or supporting lecture both for students as well as professionals who would like to examine their field from a slightly different point of view.

Salby is a climate scientist and former chair of climate at Macquarie University, where he worked from to He has written two textbooks, Fundamentals of Atmospheric Physicsand Physics of the Atmosphere and Climatethe latter building on his first book, offers an overview of the processes controlling the atmosphere of Earth, weather, energetics, and climate physics. He phyaics also authored over a hundred referenced articles in atmodpheric journals. Salby got his Bachelors in aerospace engineering inand his PhD in atmospherid dynamics from Georgia Tech inincluding a Sigma Xi: The Scientific Research Society doctoral research award.
He began as an assistant professor at University of Colorado Boulder’s Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences inbecame an associate professor inand professor ingaining tenure inbefore resigning in He has also held positions as a visiting professor and scientist at institutions in the U.
