'This textbook provides a concise, accurate and elegant introduction to scientific study of the Earth's atmosphere.' World Meteorological Organization Bulletin
'… well-written and clearly organized … covers a broad survey of topics.' George J. Hakim, EOS
'David Andrews has crafted a thoughtful introductory text on atmospheric physics that provides a comprehensive and yet easy to understand treatment of the fundamental physics underlying the broad field of atmospheric sciences.' Steven Businger, University of Hawaii
'… an up-to-date overview of the field, should be a strong candidate for undergraduate level classes that introduce the subject of atmospheric physics, and it is a worthy addition for the library of any scientist or engineer interested in the filed of atmospheric sciences.' Steven Businger, Journal of Geodesy
'… covers the three fundamental pillars of atmospheric physics - thermodynamics, radiation and fluid mechanics … the strength of this book is the way it develops the fundamental ideas of atmospheric physics without introducing too much extraneous detail … I expect this book to become a standard text for many atmospheric physics courses in future years.' Geraint Vaughan, Teaching Earth Sciences
'… a good textbook for a thorough introduction to atmospheric physics.' Jörg Matschullat, Environmental Geology
This textbook presents a broad coverage of atmospheric physics. It is an introductory text for intermediate to advanced undergraduates on physics, meteorology or environmental science courses, but will also be useful for students of applied mathematics, physical chemistry and engineering who have an interest in the atmosphere.
