Invisible in the Storm: The Role of Mathematics in Understanding Weather

one review (AMS) a second review (EMS),

"Invisible in the Storm" recounts the history, personalities, and ideas behind one of the greatest scientific successes of modern times - the use of mathematics in weather prediction. Although humans have tried to forecast weather for millennia, mathematical principles were used in meteorology only after the turn of the twentieth century. From the first proposal for using mathematics to predict weather, to the supercomputers that now process meteorological information gathered from satellites and weather stations, the authors Ian Roulstone and John Norbury narrate the groundbreaking evolution of modern forecasting.
