By Carmen J. Nappo

Gravity waves exist in every kind of geophysical fluids, corresponding to lakes, oceans, and atmospheres. They play a major position in redistributing strength at disturbances, comparable to mountains or seamounts and they're mostly studied in meteorology and oceanography, quite simulation versions, atmospheric climate versions, turbulence, pollution, and weather research.

An advent to Atmospheric Gravity Waves presents readers with a operating heritage of the basic physics and arithmetic of gravity waves, and introduces a wide selection of purposes and various fresh advances. Nappo presents a concise quantity on gravity waves with a lucid dialogue of present observational ideas and instrumentation.

Foreword is written by means of Prof. George Chimonas, a well known professional at the interactions of gravity waves with turbulence.
