UNIT 2

ATMOSPHERIC PHYSICS

FOREWORD

The science of physics is devoted to finding, defining, and reaching solu-tions to problems. It is the basic science that deals with motion, force, and energy. Physics, therefore, not only breeds curiosity of one’s environment, but it provides a means of acquiring answers to questions that continue to arise. Atmospheric physics is a branch of physical meteorology that deals with a combination of dynamic and thermodynamic processes that account for the existence of numerous atmospheric conditions.

To understand the weather elements and to analyze meteorological situations you must know how to apply the fundamental principles of physics and atmospheric physics. This does not mean that you must be able to under-stand all of the complicated theories of meteorology. It does mean, however, that you should have a fair working knowledge of elementary physics. You should learn how to apply the rules of physics to under-stand the atmosphere. This is necessary to perform your duties as an Aerographer’s Mate in a creditable manner. 

A forecaster’s understanding of mathematics becomes important to an ever-increasing degree. Your progression must include a basic mathematical knowledge of ratio, proportion, interpolation, percentage, and trigonometric functions of a right triangle. As you move further into the field of meteorology, you will find it helpful to increase your mathematical knowledge by referring to the following training manuals: Mathematics, VOL 1, NAVEDTRA 10069-D, Mathematics, Vol. 2, NAVEDTRA 10071-B, or manuals may be obtained from your Educational Service Office (ESO).

Unit 2 covers the following lessons: Lesson 1, Motion; Lesson 2, Matter; Lesson 3, Gas Laws; and Lesson 4, Atmospheric Energy.
