Atmospheric Thermodynamics

Craig F. Bohren and Bruce A. Albrecht

This timely and thorough text is based on the authors' course notes, refined over 15 years of teaching. It contains over 200 exercises that cover everything from automobiles and airplanes to baseball, wind turbines, and ground hogs, and the authors weave history and molecular interpretations into the text wherever possible. No previous knowledge of thermodynamics or kinetic theory is assumed, but students are expected to be well-grounded in calculus, differential equations, vector analysis, and classical mechanics.
