'… the culmination of the authors' teaching efforts over many years … for advanced undergraduate and graduate students in atmospheric and oceanic sciences, but it is also provides a useful reference for the practitioner … a valuable resource for those interested in terrestrial radiative transfer. It contains good discussions and physical explanations within the main text, useful summaries, notes, comments, and up-to-date references.' Lazaros Oreopoulos and Steven Platnick, Physics Today
' … I would rate the book strongly … it combines mathematical rigour with a strongly supportive text that gives good insight into the physical processes.' International Journal of Climatology
'… this book fills a gap between descriptive texts covering the physical processes and the practical numerical approaches needed in research. Designed to convey insight into the transfer process, it can also be used as a self-contained manual for practitioners who require accurate modeling of the effects of solar and infrared radiation of natural systems.' Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society
'This book should not be missing on (sic) the desk of any person seriously interested in radiative transfer … I am sure that both instructor and student can profit a great deal from studying this excellent work.' Wilford Zdunkowski, Meteorology and Atmospheric Physics
Radiative transfer is important to a range of disciplines from the study of the greenhouse warming, to stellar atmospheres, and ocean optics. This text will provide a foundation of the theoretical and practical aspects of radiative transfer, for advanced students of atmospheric, oceanic and environmental sciences.
