Atmosphere and Environment of a Desert Planet

Peter L. Read and Stephen R. Lewis

The Martian Climate RevisitedDrawing together the results of recent spacecraft studies and the very latest techniques of atmospheric modelling, The Martian Climate Revisited provides a comprehensive summary of our knowledge and current understanding of the meteorology and climate of Mars from the viewpoint of atmospheric scientists. Such knowledge is based not only upon direct observations of the structure of the atmosphere and the daily and seasonal evolution of the Martian weather systems and atmospheric circulation, but also on techniques such as numerical simulation and meteorological data assimilation, a topic in which the authors are currently pioneers in its application to Mars. The Martian Climate Revisited contains:

With its extensive section of colour plates and a comprehensive list of bibliographic material, The Martian Climate revisited is an invaluable source of reference.
