John Marshall is Professor of History at The Johns Hopkins University. He is the author of John Locke: Resistance, Religion, and Responsibility (1994).
Alan Plumb is Professor of Meteorology and Director of the Program in Oceans, Atmospheres, and Climate at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He has been an editor of Journal of the Atmospheric Sciences and of Pure and Applied Geophysics and has published approximately 100 peer reviewed papers, as well as co-editing one previous book and co-authoring an undergraduate textbook on The Circulation of the Atmosphere and Ocean (in press).
Stephen Griffies presents material that spans a broad spectrum of issues critical for modern ocean climate models. Topics are organized into parts consisting of related chapters, with each part largely self-contained. Early chapters focus on the basic equations arising from classical mechanics and thermodynamics used to rationalize ocean fluid dynamics. These equations are then cast into a form appropriate for numerical models of finite grid resolution. Basic discretization methods are described for commonly used classes of ocean climate models. The book proceeds to focus on the parameterization of phenomena occurring at scales unresolved by the ocean model, which represents a large part of modern oceanographic research. The final part provides a tutorial on the tensor methods that are used throughout the book, in a general and elegant fashion, to formulate the equations.
This book presents a cogent explanation of the fundamentals of meteorology and explains storm dynamics for weather-oriented meteorologists. It discusses climate dynamics and the implications posed for global change. The new edition has added a companion website with MATLAB exercises and updated treatments of several key topics.Provides clear physical explanations of key dynamical principlesContains a wealth of illustrations to elucidate text and equations, plus end-of-chapter problemsHolton is one of the leading authorities in contemporary meteorology, and well known for his clear writing styleInstructor's Manual available to adopters

This book, covers all the subjects of life science under 13 section namely, 1. Molecules and their interaction relevant to biology; 2. Cellular organization; 3. Fundamental processes; 4. Cell communication and cell signaling; 5. Developmental biology; 6. System physiology – Plant; 7. System physiology – Animal; 8. Inheritance biology; 9. Diversity of life forms; 10. Ecological principles; 11. Evolution and behavior; 12. Applied biology and 13. Methods in biology. Each Section has been further divided into two parts with 200 short tricky questions and 100 applied conceptual questions. Besides this, it also consist of ten full-length model practice test paper, each of 145 questions based on recent syllabus and examination pattern of CISR-UGC National Eligibility Test for Junior research fellowship and lecturership. Additional previous years solved question papers of the CSIR-UGC NET are also included to get acquainted with India's most competitive entry level exam.
The ultimate purpose of this book is to equip the reader with brainstorming challenges and solution for life science and applied aspect examinations. It contains predigested information on all the academic subject of life science for good understanding, assimilation, self-evaluation, and reproducibility.
