Yvette Richardson - Professor of Meteorology, Associate Dean for Undergraduate Education, College of Earth and Mineral Sciences, Penn State University Park

Book Title: The Ceaseless Wind: An Introduction to the Theory of Atmospheric Motion

Author: John A. Dutton

Book Description:

I went through the derivations in this book in detail as part of an independent study course in graduate school. It contains the best treatment of vorticity (i.e., rotation of the air) that I have ever found in a textbook, and the understanding gained from this book has contributed significantly to my professional career studying tornadoes. The author also happened to be the Dean of the College of Earth and Mineral Sciences when I interviewed for my position at Penn State!
