Gravity waves exist in all kinds of geophysical fluids, resembling lakes, oceans, and atmospheres. They play an incredible function in redistributing power at disturbances, comparable to mountains or seamounts and they're commonly studied in meteorology and oceanography, rather simulation types, atmospheric climate types, turbulence, pollution, and weather research.

An advent to Atmospheric Gravity Waves presents readers with a operating heritage of the elemental physics and arithmetic of gravity waves, and introduces a wide selection of functions and diverse contemporary advances. Nappo offers a concise quantity on gravity waves with a lucid dialogue of present observational concepts and instrumentation.

Foreword is written via Prof. George Chimonas, a well known professional at the interactions of gravity waves with turbulence.
