This exciting text provides a mathematically rigorous yet accessible textbook that is primarily aimed at atmospheric science majors.

Its accessibility is due to the texts emphasis on conceptual understanding.

The first five chapters constitute a companion text to introductory courses covering the dynamics of the mid-latitude atmosphere.

The final four chapters constitute a more advanced course, and provide insights into the diagnostic power of the quasi-geostrophic approximation of the equations outlined in the previous chapters, the meso-scale dynamics of thefrontal zone, the alternative PV perspective for cyclone interpretation, and the dynamics of the life-cycle of mid-latitude cyclones.

This book is written in a clear and accessible style.

It features real weather examples and global case studies.

Each chapter sets out clear learning objectives and tests students' knowledge with concluding questions and answers.
