About this book


This book is intended to give atmospheric scientists a basic understanding of the physical and mathematical foundations of stochastic Lagrangian models of turbulent diffusion. It presents the reader with the historical context of the topic, and it provides definitions, criteria and applications for stochastic diffusion.
