About the Authors
  • Providing a comprehensive review of our understanding of the small, high latitude weather systems known as polar lows, Erik Rasmussen and John Turner describe the climatological distribution of these depressions. They cover observational investigations into their structure, the operational forecasting of polar lows and the theoretical research into why they develop. They also discuss the experiments that reveal that some polar lows can be predicted. This book is of value to researchers and professional weather forecasters concerned with polar regions.

    • The book deals in an integrated way with both research into polar lows and their prediction
    • It is written by an international group of experts on polar weather systems

    Reviews & endorsements

    "Polar Lows: Mesoscale Weather Systems in the Polar Regions was a pleasure to read for the wealth of knowlege it contains on the important bipolar topic of osberving, understanding, and forecasting mesoscale cyclones. The manuscript is well produced with nice figues and little in the way of editorial oversights. Although the $120 cost is not cheap, it is a relative bargain considering the comprehensive synthesis of "polar low" knowledge it provides and the many communities is serves. The text is strong on both theoretical and practical aspects, and therefore has unusually wide appeal. ...I stongly recommend this important contribution..." David H. Bromwich, Byrd Polar Research Center, The Ohio State University
