Product Description

Review

"Undoubtedly destined to become a classic. The treatment is sensitively pitched at a level for the non-meteorological specialist in a variety of disciplines in geography, agriculture, forestry, ecology, engineering and planning."
-"World Meteorological Organization Bulletin
"This well established climatology text explains the climates formed near the ground in terms of the cycling of energy and mass through systems . . . In this second edition, Professor Oke provides a fuller description of the atmospheric layers and gives more emphasis to the whole planetary boundary layer. There are nearly 50 new figures and new material on radiation geometry, the nature of thermals and convective cloud, leaf-air exchange, evapotranspiration from crops and forests, effects of topography on air flow, and the energy balance of cities."
-"Aquatic Sciences and Fisheries Abstracts
--This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Format: Paperback
Boundary layer climates will be most usful to students studying the atmosphere in the context of atmospheric stability, flux, tranport and air pollution. It is particularly good at explaining the maths and physics of the processes in an easy to understand manner, with excellent use of diagrams. For students who find the maths and physics equations difficult to get their head around, I think this book will be very useful,it also helps to get an idea of the concepts behind the equations.

Great book, bought this for a third year university micrometeorology module and it did the trick! The reason I passed the module! It's not the easiest to understand but read things once or twice (and google a few words you don't understand) and you'll get there.

HASH(0x8f104b70) out of 5 stars Met ref...... 25 July 2001
By J Zachariassen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I have found this book to be an extremely good reference over the years for a non-meteorologist; this coming from a biogeochemist - I have used it for years and am now buying it. Another very good reference is Stahl (of course)

HASH(0x8f104bc4) out of 5 stars Oke is the man 3 April 2000

HASH(0x92b89018) out of 5 stars VERY VERY PISSED OFF BRUIN 23 Jan. 2016
By Viviana - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
FOR MY COLLEGE COURSE THE PROFESSOR REQUIRED THE 2ND EDITION OF THIS BOOK. I ORDERED IT BECAUSE THE DESCRIPTION DETAILED IT WAS THE 2ND EDITION.
WHAT DID I GET IN THE MAIL ? THE FIRST EDITION . WTH. THIS IS VERY INSENSITIVE AND SIMPLY NOT A NICE THING TO DO. FALSE ADVERTISEMENT . IT IS A VERY GOOD BOOK, INDEED, BUT IT IS THE FIRST EDITION THAT YOU WILL RECEIVE. IF THIS DOES NOT INCONVENIENCE YOU AS IT DID ME (with the syllabus and class schedule basing everything on the SECOND edition ) THEN BY ALL MEANS, ORDER FROM THIS DECEIVING AND INCONSIDERATE MERCHANT.

HASH(0x8f104fe4) out of 5 stars Something wrong! 1 April 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Why don't we make this good book even better? I happened to notice that the 2nd equation of A1.2 on page 339 was wrong. Cosine value should always be between -1 and +1. In table A3.1 on page 393, SI unit for the last three columns is also problematic. I think it should be sqaure meter per second multiplied by 10 to -6. Check those out.
