Meteorology used to be first thought of in Landolt-Börnstein in quantity III (published 1952) of the sixth variation. at the moment, 9 contributions with 153 pages appeared sufficient. meanwhile, meteorology has skilled a world growth as a result of the starting to be curiosity in environmental difficulties. New remark and assessment equipment including excessive functionality pcs have produced an ever expanding quantity of knowledge at the surroundings, that are being exploited for climate and weather difficulties in a variety of methods. as well as the enhanced wisdom received without delay by means of those observations they're necessary within the verification of the clinically determined and anticipated atmospheric states got via mathematically established climate forecasting and weather types. quantity V/4 of the hot sequence covers the sector of meteorology because the physics of the ambience in numerous subvolumes. the 1st, V/4 a "Thermodynamical and dynamical buildings of the worldwide atmosphere", seemed in 1986. It was once through subvolume V/4 b facing the actual and chemical facts of the ambience. Subvolume V/4 c is worried with the actual and meteorological features of weather. the 1st half, V/4 c 1, provided the following, comprises contributions on weather definition, particular surfaces climates, weather diversifications, and the planetary boundary layer. the second one half, V/4 c 2, will deal with the current international floor weather and the mathematical and actual suggestions of weather modelling.
