This book is intended for graduate students in middle atmosphere dynamics courses and will be useful to all research workers in meteorology, aeronomy, and atmospheric chemistry. Furthermore, many of the basic dynamical and physical processes discussed also have broad applicability in other branches of atmospheric dynamics, and will be of interest to those studying such areas as climate dynamics and planetary atmospheres.
