Book description

Based on more than twenty years of research and lecturing, Jordi Vilà-Guerau de Arellano and his team's textbook provides an excellent introduction to the interactions between the atmosphere and the land for advanced undergraduate and graduate students and a reference text for researchers in atmospheric physics and chemistry, hydrology, and plant physiology. The combination of the book, which provides the essential theoretical concepts, and the associated interactive Chemistry Land-surface Atmosphere Soil Slab (CLASS) software, which provides hands-on practical exercises and allows students to design their own numerical experiments, will prove invaluable for learning about many aspects of the soil-vegetation-atmosphere system. This book has a modular and flexible structure, allowing instructors to accommodate it to their own learning-outcome needs.


'While providing an introduction to the atmospheric boundary layer and the interactions and feedbacks within the land-atmosphere system, Dr. Vila-Guerau de Arellano and colleagues have created a valuable teaching and learning tool. The CLASS software guides and inspires active learning, and is straightforward to acquire and use. I recommend this textbook and software for undergraduate and graduate students, and as a reference for researchers in fields ranging from plant physiology to atmospheric science.'

'The book is ideal for undergraduates and graduates majoring in atmospheric science and a perfect text for courses dealing with the physics, chemistry, and ecology of land-atmosphere interactions. The CLASS model and the supplementary videos available from the website … make the book an appealing companion for a short intensive course or a workshop on the topic. … many aspects of the book will be appreciated by meteorologists, hydrologists, ecologists, air pollution and climate scientists involved in courses dealing with the intersection between all these fields.'
