This book has been written to provide a comprehensive introduction to the science, sensors and systems that form modern aviation weather surveillance systems. Focusing on radar-based surveillance, it deals in logical, stepwise detail with the fundamentals of the various disciplines involved and with their complex interplay. This includes giving a background to aviation systems and control, atmospheric and meteorological aspects, weather issues in relation to aviation, and broad coverage of modern aviation weather surveillance and information systems, including detailed material on Doppler weather radar, plus new generation atmospheric sensors. qAviation weather surveillance systems is an impressive achievement and is an important part of the armamentarium of not only personnel directly handling aviation meterological functions, but also of pilots, air traffic controllers, airline managers, civil aviation system planners and regulators, accident investigators and indeed anyone with a serious interest in aviation. Beautifully printed and illustrated with figures, tables and graphs and colour plates, the material provided by the author will ensure that those needing information on all of the important scientific and technological aspects of the aviation weather surveillance problems, will readily locate it in this volume.q - Current Engineering Practice, Vol. 43, Nos. 2-3, 2000.Advanced Radar and Surface Sensors for Flight Safety and Air Traffic Management Pravas Mahapatra, R.
