Doppler Radar & Weather Observations by Richard J. Doviak,Dusan S. Zrnic

By Richard J. Doviak,Dusan S. Zrnic

This publication experiences the foundations of Doppler radar and emphasizes the quantitative size of meteorological parameters. It illustrates the relation of Doppler radar facts and pictures to atmospherix phenomena resembling tornados, microbursts, waves, turbulence, density currents, hurricanes, and lightning. Radar photos and images of those climate phenomena are included.

  • Polarimetric measurements and knowledge processing
  • An up-to-date part on RASS
  • Wind profilers
  • Observations with the WSR-88D
  • An up to date remedy of lightning
  • Turbulence within the planetary boundary layer
  • A brief heritage of radar
  • Chapter challenge sets

Fields, Networks, Computational Methods, and Systems in Modern Electrodynamics: A Tribute to Leopold B. Felsen (Springer Proceedings in Physics)

On June 1St 2004 the school of electric Engineering and data expertise of the Technische Universitat Miinchen bestowed the measure of the healthcare professional honoris causa to Leopold B. Felsen, for impressive achievements within the idea of electromag­ netic fields. in this get together on June 1St and 2d 2004 on the Technische Universitat Miinchen a symposium on "Fields, Networks, Computational equipment, and platforms: a contemporary View of Engineering Electrodynamics" in honor of Leopold B.

Geoid Determination: Theory and Methods (Lecture Notes in Earth System Sciences)

This ebook could be in line with the fabric of the lecture noties in numerous overseas colleges for the selection and Use of the Geoid, geared up by way of the overseas Geoid Serivice of the overseas organization of Geodesy. It consolidates, unifies, and streamlines this fabric in a distinct means now not covereed through the few different books that exist in this subjext.


Superconductivity covers the character of the phenomenon of superconductivity. The publication discusses the basic rules of superconductivity; the basic good points of the superconducting state-the phenomena of 0 resistance and ideal diamagnetism; and the homes of a number of the sessions of superconductors, together with the organics, the buckministerfullerenes, and the precursors to the cuprates.

Classical Electrodynamics: From Image Charges to the Photon Mass and Magnetic Monopoles (Undergraduate Lecture Notes in Physics)

This booklet proposes intriguing arguments that might permit scholars to accomplish a deeper figuring out of electromagnetism, while additionally proposing a few classical methods for solving difficult problems. Two chapters are dedicated to relativistic electrodynamics, masking all aspects needed for a complete comprehension of the character of electrical and magnetic fields and, to that end, electrodynamics.
