An Introduction to Three-Dimensional Climate Modeling, Second Edition

Hans von Storch
First Paragraph

The first edition (1986) of An Introduction to Three-Dimensional Climate Modeling was an excellent book. After almost 20 years, however, it has become a bit outdated and has been replaced now by an equally excellent second edition. This book is even more urgently needed than 20 years ago. The science of climate dynamics has changed, and the book provides students and newcomers entering the field from outside with the required background for confronting the contemporary challenges of climate-forecast and climate-change studies.
