Any recommended meterology books?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

 

Please forgive me if this has been posted into the wrong area of the forum!

 

Over the last few years I have been looking at the models (GFS, UKMO, ECMWF) fairly frequently and have been able to gather a basic understanding of what each chart is displaying. I really want to develop my knowledge and my understanding of each specific chart so I can form a more detailed evaluation of what the weather has in hold for us.

 

I was wondering if anyone on here has any recommendations of any books or websites that may help me with this? The information I need may even be on here and I am just rubbish at finding it! 

As I said, I only have a basic understanding of charts at the moment so I am not looking for anything to advanced. 

 

I have recently joined the Royal Navy and am looking at a career as a meteorologist specialist so any help would be very much appreciated!

 

Kind regards,

 

Joe

Fantastic. Thank you very much Polar Maritime.

 

If anyone has any book recommendations as well that would be very much appreciated as well.

Essentials of Meteorology by DH McIntosh and AS Thom is well worth trying, a mix of very basic and rather more detailed.

 

this link may help with some of the basic and more technical terms, originated by ex senior Met O forecaster

I am sure other posters will drop more ideas in here.

good luck if you do decide to do meteorology. No idea what the RN expect in terms of qualifications. But you need Maths and Physics at what was called A level decades ago in my time!
