Title: Mountain Meteorology: Fundamentals and Applications

Abstract

Published by Oxford University Press. Mountain Meteorology: Fundamentals and Applications aims to heighten awareness and appreciation of the weather in mountainous areas by introducing the reader to the basic principles and concepts of mountain meteorology and by discussing applications of these principles and concepts in natural resource management. The reader will learn to recognize characteristic mountain weather patterns and events, to anticipate their evolution and to evaluate their impact on planned activities. More than 180 figures, diagrams and photographs, most in full color, support the text and promote a conceptual understanding of mountain meteorology. In the figures and in the text, observable indicators (winds, temperature, clouds) of atmospheric processes are emphasized to facilitate the recognition of weather systems and events.
