Turning to the second question, that of scientific accuracy, the author is to be commended for the many fine diagrams. With its fusion of the mathematical and descriptive fields of meteorology and its integrated coverage of synoptic and dynamic approaches, Mid-Latitude Weather Systems is an invaluable course text and reference source for students.

Meteorology. Weather is a moving phenomenon. Obtaining useful data about it requires collecting observations taken over wide ranges of territory. Determining what to measure and how to gather the measurements reliably and consistently were major challenges during the infancy of this science—even as researchers began interpreting the data.

Climatology and meteorology have basically been a descriptive science until it became possible to use numerical models, but it is crucial to the success of the strategy that the model must be a good representation of the real climate system of the Earth.
