4. “North Sea Climate: Based on observations from ships and lightvessels” by C G Korevaar

“North Sea Climate: Based on observations from ships and lightvessels” Book Review: This volume focuses on wind and wave data. It includes various feature data on air and sea temperature, cloud cover, visibility and sea level pressure. It decides the era of examinations made by crew on board light vessels. The book contains the examinations on fixed platforms which are now substituting the examinations of the light vessels which are of a quite deviating character. It contains information based on examinations made on board light vessels between 1949 and 1980 and voluntary observing ships in the area between 51 ON and 60 N between 1961 and 1980.

5. “The investigation of atmospheric pollution: a report on observations” by Great Britain Dept of Scientific and Industrial Research
6. “Radar for Meteorological and Atmospheric Observations” by Shoichiro Fukao and Kyosuke Hamazu

advertisement
“Radar for Meteorological and Atmospheric Observations” Book Review: This volume presents an exhaustive science and technology of radars for meteorological and atmospheric observations. The text encopasses the interrelatedness and multidisciplinary character of the research fields on which meteorological radar technology and atmospheric radar technology are based. The book consists of basic theories, observational techniques and results.

7. “Scientific Application of Baseline Observations of Atmospheric Composition (SABOAC)” by Dieter H Ehhalt and Graeme Pearman

“Scientific Application of Baseline Observations of Atmospheric Composition (SABOAC)” Book Review: The concepts encompassed in this work includes Non Reactive Gases and Reactive Gases. It covers topics like Transport,and Carbon Dioxide. Furthermore it also covers topics of Particulates, Precipitation Chemistry and Radiation. It provides in a systematic manner the papers presented during the Conference on the Scientific Application of Baseline Observations of Atmospheric Composition (SABOAC). The book comprises almost 40 such papers.

8. “Observation of Atmospheric Carbon Monoxide” by Gezahegn Daba and Gizaw Tsidu

advertisement
“Observation of Atmospheric Carbon Monoxide” Book Review: This volume presents an explanation on the source and sink of atmospheric CO for each atmospheric layer particularly the upper troposphere and lower troposphere. It further includes in-depth working principle of FTIR spectrometer. The data received from the spectrometer are rectified using software based on the equation derived in the “Retrieval Theory” section. The book is appropriate for people working on atmospheric research particularly those using ground-based instruments for data collection on atmospheric gases. It is also handy for people using spectroscopic measurements to see how the data is examined. People operating on space borne atmospheric research can also refer to it.

9. “Observation of the Atmospheric Boundary Layer in the Western and Central Gulf of Mexico Final Performance Report” by U S Department of the Interior Minerals Management Service

“Observation of the Atmospheric Boundary Layer in the Western and Central Gulf of Mexico Final Performance Report” Book Review: The book provides current data sets on how temperature,winds and mixing height differ vertically over the atmospheric boundary layer and free troposphere. It contains data from sources of automated weather stations determining meteorological variables in the surface layer and observational satellites partaking the boundary layer and free troposphere at a few select altitudes. It contains direct observations which more accurately explains vertical variations than the estimates which includes numerous assumptions and simplifications.

10. “Global Atmospheric Circulations: Observations and Theories” by Richard Grotjahn

advertisement
“Global Atmospheric Circulations: Observations and Theories” Book Review: This volume presents a well-balanced combination of examinations and theories on the largest-scale circulations of the atmosphere. The book is appropriate for an advanced-level and as a reference source. It provides observational knowledge along with theory. The book encompasses numerous derivations thoroughly and explanations of the northern and southern hemisphere flows. The volume is designed for students and researchers in atmospheric science.
