      Meteorology Book - Chapter 4. STUDY. PLAY. Humidity. The amount of water vapor in the air. The polar air has a higher relative humidity than desert air, yet what does the desert air contain more of? Water. When the air is said to be dry what is the relative humidity? Quite high. Ever a fan of arctic and polar exploration, the first chapters of this book, while captivating, had me wondering when we’d get to the “good stuff”. Of course, the descriptions of Wilkins’ work as a war photographer were harrowing stories of the unique ability the man in /5.

      It is also recommended that students have a minimum basic knowledge of meteorology equivalent to “Essentials of Meteorology, An Invitation to the Atmosphere” by C. Donald Ahrens (). The course should be combined with AGF Polar Ocean Climate (15 ECTS) and the courses are designed to complement each other. Pollution, Meteorology of the Upper Atmosphere, Dynamic Meteorology, Polar Meteorology, and Physical Oceanography, and the IAMAP/IAPSO Joint Committee on Air-Sea Inter-action.

Tarbuck, et al. | out of 5 stars "Polar Lows: Mesoscale Weather Systems in the Polar Regions was a pleasure to read for the wealth of knowlege it contains on the important bipolar topic of osberving, understanding, and forecasting mesoscale cyclones. The manuscript is well produced with nice figues and little in the way of editorial by: Books and scientific reports available on the wildlife, geology, geography, meteorology, penguins, seals, walrus, whaling, polar bear and other fauna and flora.

The books have been collected by us over the years and whilst we have enjoyed collecting and reading them it has come time to see them go to new homes 🙂.

Meteorology is a branch of the atmospheric sciences which includes atmospheric chemistry and atmospheric physics, with a major focus on weather study of meteorology dates back millennia, though significant progress in meteorology did not occur until the 18th 19th century saw modest progress in the field after weather observation networks were formed.

[American Meteorological Society.;]. The polar regions present several unique challenges to meteorology, including remoteness and a harsh environment. We summarize the evolution of polar meteorology in both hemispheres, beginning with measurements made during early expeditions and concluding with the recent decades in which polar meteorology has been central to global challenges such as the ozone Author: John E.

Polar meteorology investigates phenomena such as polar cyclones, katabatic (downslope) winds, and sea ice/ocean–atmosphere interactions. Mountain meteorology studies the causes of clouds, precipitation, and wind patterns in mountainous and high-terrain regions as well as the microclimates created by the rapid elevation changes.

Understanding meteorology requires understanding the atmosphere, some physics, and a lot of charts. Although this book may attempt to explain some mathematical concepts, many chapters simply require a preexisting considerable understanding of differential and integral calculus.

Polar Oceanography is an integrated synthesis of the biological, physical, geological, and chemical processes that occur in the polar oceans.

The resulting publications established him as one of the world's leading experts on polar meteorology and glaciology. According to fellow meteorologist and Greenland explorer Dr. Johannes Georgi, Wegener was the first to trace storm tracks over the ice : Patrick Hughes. This book showcases Earth’s diverse climates and will help children compare and contrast polar and boreal climates with those in tropical, subtropical, temperate, mountain and desert climates.

Use this book with the Comparing/Contrasting Weather and Climate lessons in the Science and Literacy Lessons and Activities article. This book is strongly recommended for the polar scientist who wants to gain an appreciation of modern Antarctic atmospheric investigations, as much of the material does not require an in-depth knowledge of meteorology to be by:.
