Reviews - What do customers think about Evaporation into the Atmosphere: Theory, History and Applications (Environmental Fluid Mechanics)?

The authority  Jan 21, 2005
A disclaimer: this book was written by my major professor, so I may be a little bias.

This text is the foremost authority on evaporation and boundary layer meteorology. One thing that I enjoy about Professor Brutsaert's style is the historical context in which many lectures are delivered. In fact, the second chapter of this book is about the history of evaporation science. It continues to cover topics such as atmospheric stability, bulk transfer, Monin-Obukov, as well as the references and in-depth explanation. Then there is a great deal of text (as it should) spent on energy fluxes and measurement.

In case you still think that this is bias, every grad student office (studying the ABL) that I have visited as a graduate student, here at Cornell, and at other institutions, has had a copy of this book.
The ultimate starting point for learning evaporation physics  Feb 7, 1999
Wilfried Brutsaert has the very impressive ability and understanding to visualize the complexities and physics of the evaporation processes and to describe them quantitatively. The book, even though it is dated, is still current in its theory. It is a must have reference for the serious student of evaporation processes from water and vegetation. It is useful for the physicist, the engineer, and the biometeorologist.

The text is well written and friendly and with lots of figures and graphs showing real world data. Even though the text is friendly, it is so full and concise, that it takes the first timer several readings to garner all of the information stored there.

The first portion of the book presents an interesting history of some of the quantitative developments in predicting evaporation.
