Table of contents
Bulletin of the AMS 'The material is topical but, despite its importance, few books cover the same area ... The author is an expert in the field fo cloud-radiation interaction. His book presents basic material in a clear and interesting manner ... the book is destined to become a classic reference in the subject.'
Peter Jonas, Times Higher Educ Supplement, 16 April 1993 d 'This volume of substance is clearly written and would be useful for postgraduate courses.'
M.J. Rycroft, Cranfield Institute of Technology, Journal of Atmospheric and Terrestrial Physics 'The author is an expert in the field of cloud-radiation interaction. His book presents basic material in a clear and interesting manner, mentioning very recent publications - essential in such a rapidly developing field. The author has also not been afraid to note areas where understanding is incomplete ... and the book is destined to become a classic reference in the subject.'
