About this Textbook

Part of the excitement in boundary-layer meteorology is the challenge associated with turbulent flow - one of the unsolved problems in classical physics. The flavor of the challenges and the excitement associated with the study of the atmospheric boundary layer are captured in this textbook.

The work should also be considered as a major reference and as a review of the literature, since it includes tables of parameterizations, procedures, field experiments, useful constants, and graphs of various phenomena under a variety of conditions.

The author envisions, and has catered for, a heterogeneity in the background and experience of his readers. Therefore, the book is useful to beginning graduate students as well as established scientists.

'The book is a welcome addition to the boundary-layer literature, one of the first truly comprehensive texts... ' (Boundary-Layer Meteorology)

'I found, in fact, that within hours of the book's arrival, I had consulted it twice..' (AMS Bulletin, 1989)

'Stull's book is destined to be the overwhelmingly favorite text and general reference in atmospheric turbulence and boundary layer physics during the1990s'. (AMS Bulletin, 1990)

'.. a good introductory textbook which is likely to be well used in the coming years.'  (Quarterly Journal of the Royal Meteorological Society)

Reviews

`The book is an impressive work and will be of value to many students, researchers and operational meteorologists,'
Journal of Fluid Mechanics, 224, 1991
`... the detailed excellent treatment of the broad field of boundary layer meteorology makes the book most valuable, not only to students, but to anyone interested in turbulence in the boundary layer.'
J. Borkowski, Pageoph, 133:1, 1990
'In summary the book is highly recommended for graduate students of meteorology as well as air chemists and aerosol physicists wanting to interpret their measured data in terms of boundary layer phenomena.'
Atmospheric Research 26, 1991
`Das Buch is allemal eine Investition wert und wird für viele Jahre ein Standardwerk über Grenzschichtmeteorologie bleiben. Einen 'Stull' sollte jeder (Grenzschicht-)Meteorologe besitzen.'
Meteorologische Rundschau, 41:6
`Das Buch ist es wert, einem großen Leserkreis zugänglich gemacht zu werden.Es spricht nicht nur den Studenten an, sondern jeden Meteorologen bis hin zum Experten aus ausgewählten Gebieten der atmosphärischen Grenzschicht. Der anschauliche and leichte Zugang zur Thematik ermöglicht aber auch vielen Wissenschaftlern benachbarten Disziplinen, die sich in ihrer Tätigkeit mit meteorologischen Prozessen der atmosphärischen Grenzschicht auseindersetzen müssen, eine rasche und einfache Einarbeitung.'
Zeitschrift für Meterologie, 40, 1990
