Climate Mathematics - Theory and Applications 

Climate Mathematics
Theory and Applications

This unique text provides a thorough, yet accessible, grounding in the mathematics, statistics, and programming that students need to master for coursework and research in climate science, meteorology, and oceanography. Assuming only high school mathematics, it presents carefully selected concepts and techniques in linear algebra, statistics, computing, calculus and differential equations within the context of real climate science examples...

Additional online supplements to aid classroom teaching include datasets, images, and animations. Guidance is provided on how the book can support a variety of courses at different levels, making it a highly flexible text for undergraduate and graduate students, as well as researchers and professional climate scientists who need to refresh or modernize their quantitative skills.

  • Tailored specifically to the needs of climate science, combining all the relevant math topics into a single resource
  • Accessible and self-contained, assuming only high school mathematical knowledge Presents each formula alongside relevant climate science examples to demonstrate the physical meaning and context
  • Uses R and Python code to integrate computational techniques with mathematical

    Environmental Sustainability for Engineers and Applied Scientists

    Environmental Sustainability for Engineers and Applied Scientists

    This textbook presents key theoretical approaches to understanding issues of sustainability and environmental management, perfectly bridging the gap between engineering and environmental science...

    Students will learn quantitative methods while also gaining an understanding of qualitative, legal, and ethical aspects of sustainability. Practical applications are included throughout, and there are study questions at the end of each chapter. PowerPoint slides and jpegs of all the figures in the book are provided online. This is the perfect textbook on environmental studies for engineering and applied science students.

    •  Includes both quantitative and qualitative aspects of environmental sustainability that a well-rounded engineering or applied science graduate should know
    • Provides study questions at the end of each chapter to ensure that the reader is learning, which will appeal to both instructors and students
    • Offers a scientific perspective of sustainability by bridging engineering and environmental science
