Additional Resources Table of Contents and PrefaceIndex

The past decade has been characterized by remarkable advances in meteorological observation, computing techniques, and data-visualization technology. Midlatitude Synoptic Meteorology links theoretical concepts to modern technology and facilitates the meaningful application of concepts, theories, and techniques using real data. As such, it both serves those planning careers in meteorological research and weather prediction and provides a template for the application of modern technology in the classroom. Topics covered in depth include extratropical cyclones and fronts, topographically trapped flows, weather forecasting, and numerical weather prediction.
