A first course in atmospheric radiation / Grant W. Petty. Madison, Wisconsin : Sundog Publishing, c2006. 458 p.
This textbook is written for meteorology and climatology students who require an introduction to the principles and practical consequences of atmospheric radiation but who do not necessarily intend to become specialists in radiation or remote sensing. Its objective is to foster an understanding of “how radiation works” and to provide a solid conceptual and mathematical foundation for further study.
