Polar Lows

Mesoscale Weather Systems in the Polar Regions

Polar Lows

Providing a comprehensive review of our understanding of the small, high latitude weather systems known as polar lows, Erik Rasmussen and John Turner describe the climatological distribution of these depressions. They cover observational investigations into their structure, the operational forecasting of polar lows and the theoretical research into why they develop. They also discuss the experiments that reveal that some polar lows can be predicted. This book is of value to researchers and professional weather forecasters concerned with polar regions.


 Reviews:

"Polar Lows: Mesoscale Weather Systems in the Polar Regions was a pleasure to read for the wealth of knowlege it contains on the important bipolar topic of osberving, understanding, and forecasting mesoscale cyclones. The manuscript is well produced with nice figues and little in the way of editorial oversights. Although the $120 cost is not cheap, it is a relative bargain considering the comprehensive synthesis of "polar low" knowledge it provides and the many communities is serves. The text is strong on both theoretical and practical aspects, and therefore has unusually wide appeal. ...I stongly recommend this important contribution..." David H. Bromwich, Byrd Polar Research Center, The Ohio State University

Review of the hardback: 'This book is significant because it helps us to advance towards complete theoretical understanding of why polar lows develop … The book is of practical importance … Polar Lows: Mesoscale Weather Systems in the Polar Regions is a quality publication providing high-resolution satellite images, diagrams, graphs, weather charts … The book has been assembled with great care and considerable editorial skills, maintaining continuity throughout the text. Logical layout and good writing skills make the flow of knowledge smooth and understandable … thorough, up-to-date, and thought-provoking … highly recommended for purchase by institutional and university libraries. I do not hesitate to recommend this book …' Antarctic Science

Review of the hardback: '… seems destined to become the standard work on the subject, it must be hoped that all research and university libraries will ensure that they acquire a copy.' The Journal of Meteorology
