May 3, 2012

We’re pleased to report that an important new textbook will soon be added to our lineup: A First Course in Atmospheric Numerical Modeling, by Alex DeCaria and Glenn E. Van Knowe.  Alex DeCaria is a professor in Earth Sciences at Millersville University, and Glenn Van Knowe is an atmospheric modeler at MESO, Inc., in New York.

This book will target advanced undergraduates in atmospheric science and will introduces students to the essentials of finite difference methods, numerical stability, numerical parameterizations, and related topics.

The tentative timetable is for this book to go to press by the end of 2012.  Additional information, including table of contents and how to request an examination copy, will be posted as it becomes available.

Update (July 23, 2013)

The book is now nearly finished and is scheduled for publication in September, 2013.  A detailed description may be found here.
