About this book
Atmospheric Data Analysis is intended to fill a void in the atmospheric science literature and curricula. The book is self contained, and includes topics important in several other fields outside atmospheric observation, including atmospheric dynamics and statistics. It outlines the physical and mathematical basis of all aspects of atmospheric analysis. The emphasis is on the theoretical foundation of the subject and most of the development is analytic, but many practical considerations and examples are introduced. There are numerous exercises at the end of each chapter to aid the student in comprehending the material.

    My Memories were Saved!

    What a life saver! I had a previous cord that came with my external hard drive (My Passport Ultra). One day (after carrying it in my laptop bag for a few years), I plugged in the external and proceeded to find some documents I had saved on there. The computer would not read that there was any information on the hard drive and asked me to re-format. If you are ever in this situation, DO NOT re-format because you will lose all your documents on the hard drive. At that point I was extremely concerned that I just had lost all my photos, music and basically memories of that last decade of my life. I did some research and found that others had had similar problems, but found a solution in purchasing a new chord so that's exactly what I did and TA-DA Magic!! It worked! I was able to recover all my files and this chord actually seems even stronger than the original one that came with the external.

    VERY NICE, QUALITY CASE FOR MY NEW hard drive!!

    fits perfectly my new Seagate 1tb drive! Very happy with it!Its sleek and love the color and its matt sturdy material.I put here the pics of my both dives: Toshiba which I got like 3-4yrs ago with my caselogic case and just recently purchased Birugear with the Seagate drive.As you can see both are very nice cases. I got these bright colors, easy to see and find.And as I was looking at them : My Toshiba is a bit thicker than the Seagate and somehow the caselogic is bit thicker as well - so fits just fine.And then the Birugear is bit sleeker than the Caselogic case, but the Seagate is a sleek one too. So, its perfect for the drive.One thing, not really major - I like that the Birugear got 2 holding bands, while Caselogic got 1 thick band. BUT! I think its perfect for the particular drive. Toshiba is thicker and one thick band kinda makes sense.While the Seagate is thinner, so 2 bands holding it - also makes sense.I wanted... 5/5 Milan - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Great case. Does what I need it to do.

    5/5 Derek Niehaus - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: BIRUGEAR Hard Shell Carrying Case for Toshiba Canvio 3.0 Portable Hard Drive/ Automatic Backup / Canvio Basics 3.0 / Canvio Slim / Canvio Connect II / Canvio Premium - Black (Electronics) I bought this to protect my external hard drive. I carry it in my computer bag every day, so whatever bumps and jars it takes, so does this case and my drive. It holds the drive in place with elastic straps to one side of the case, and the other side has a little storage pouch (which I use to house the cord). It seems durable, and like it absorbs some of the shock of most any regular forces. I don't think it would protect it from a fall of great distance, but for what I need it to do, it performs well.

    Perfect fit for WD My Passport drives

    I recently bought a My Passport for Mac drive locally when a computer emergency came up. Crisis averted, now I had a small drive with a proprietary cable to store without managing to damage or lose it. Enter the Mediabridge Carrying Case. While the color options were boring (any color you'd like, as long as it's black), it fit almost all other criteria I had for a portable hard drive case: big enough for the drive and cable without being oversized, hard enough to be sturdy, not outrageously priced, good reviews that showed a well made item.And once it arrived, the Mediabridge proved to fit all those criteria. It definitely seems well made; no shoddy edges or seams, zipper moves easily around the corner curves both opening and closing. The drive fits the case with minimal movement, but is not difficult to remove for use. The cable and drive fit in the same case with a little room to spare, unlike at least one other case on Amazon. The hard outer shell does have a little... 4/5 Victoria (WA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Best Choice by Far for WD Passport

    5/5 Larry (Seattle, WA USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Mediabridge Carrying Case For Portable External Hard Drive - Fits WD My Passport Ultra, Toshiba Canvio Basics & Most Models Of Seagate Expansion Portable / Backup Plus Slim (Electronics) Best choice by far. I have purchased two other cases for my passport drives. The WD neoprene case is nice and fits snugly on the drive but I don't like stuffing the cables into it. This case is well made and it is the perfect size. This case will hold and protect the Passport as well as the cable. The mesh pocket is not too big but it allows space for a couple of extra items like my iPhone charging cable and a couple of usb memory sticks. I have two WD Passport drives and I will be buying a second case., March 3, 2016

    Small, Very Tough, Fit Is Perfect. Flawless.

    5/5 David Timmons (Raleigh, NC) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Mediabridge Carrying Case For Portable External Hard Drive - Fits WD My Passport Ultra, Toshiba Canvio Basics & Most Models Of Seagate Expansion Portable / Backup Plus Slim (Electronics) This is one tough case. I bought it for my 2TB WD Titanium Hard Drive, and the fit is amazing. I'm able to keep the cable, user manual, and hard drive in there with room for more. It has a hard shell, I literally feel like I could drop this down some stairs or something and whatever is inside would be perfectly fine. It's small, compact, and fits other things besides external hard drives. The strap that holds down the device is very strong and stretchy at the same time, making it very secure. Anybody have any questions? Feel free to ask on the product page and I'll most likely be the one who answers anyways. Happy Hunting, but to me, my hunt ended with this.

    ### PHYSICAL ###One terabyte that fits in your jeans' pocket. I don't want to go all "when we were young we walked 10 miles to school, etc." on you, but my first hard drive was such that I would have needed 50'000 of 'em to match the capacity, occupying a solid cube 9 feet on each side and setting me back 30 million dollars. That's mind- blowing progress indeed, and while the original advances were made by firms like Seagate and IBM, those have mostly sold off/sourced out in the meantime, leaving Western Digital as the Bleeding Edge hard drive brand.This device looks like a cigarette holder with a glossy finish. The edges are rounded, and the usb connector is the only opening in the case, so for my occasional transport I just carry the drive in my jacket as-is. It would have been super- neat to have a rubber flap over the usb and perhaps a more scratch- resistant matte finish, but there is no issue here, especially since WD offers inexpensive... 4/5 Strohmian (New York, NY United States) - See all my reviews, October 21, 2010

    ULTIMATE!

    I picked this up from amazon for 50$ before the great Japan Hard Drive Crisis (when the tsunami hit and the power plant melted down). I don't think I could ever fill up this much space and I take photographs DAILY. I have a 8BG card in my cam and at the end of a month or two I put them on this drive. I am nowhere near full or even 25% for that matter. The main reason I bought this one is because it does NOT need an external power supply. Meaning the USB plug that goes to the computer ALSO gives it the power it needs at the same time!It's just a big as a real passport but about two thick. There's a little white light that lets you know if stuff is being transferred. It also stays on constantly if its plugged in so that can be annoying at night because it's so bright it can light an entire room.

    Western Digital unreliable

    WD deserve only one star! I ordered WD My Passport Essential portable external drive in April 2012 from Amazon. I chose WD's portable ext-drive because it came with its own software (WD Smartware) and WD advertise that their software can image your hard-drive for direct reboot. When I got my WD ext-drive I installed the WD Smartware on my Dell laptop to make an image of my laptop's hard drive in case my laptop's hard drive crashes I can boot from WD ext-drive. I even called WD's tech support and had them walk me through the installation for imaging my laptop's hard-drive. The WD Smartware indicated that my entire laptop hard-drive was properly copied. I updated my hard-drive twice a week. In late June 2012 my Dell laptop started having problems. I called WD's tech support and ask them for help. All of a sudden WD's tech support claimed that their software does not do imaging, only saves data files! 2 months earlier they instructed me on how to properly install the WD Smartware for... 1/5 NoName - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)
