Review of the hardback: 'I strongly recommend this important contribution for purchase by all scientists interested in these sometimes intense mesoscale phenomena that extend into the mid-latitudes, and by libraries emphasizing atmospheric and polar science.' EOS Review of the hardback: 'This book is significant because it helps us to advance towards complete theoretical understanding of why polar lows develop ... The book is of practical importance ... Polar Lows: Mesoscale Weather Systems in the Polar Regions is a quality publication providing high-resolution satellite images, diagrams, graphs, weather charts ... The book has been assembled with great care and considerable editorial skills, maintaining continuity throughout the text. Logical layout and good writing skills make the flow of knowledge smooth and understandable ... thorough, up-to-date, and thought-provoking ... highly recommended for purchase by institutional and university libraries. I do not hesitate to recommend this book ...' Antarctic Science Review of the hardback: '... seems destined to become the standard work on the subject, it must be hoped that all research and university libraries will ensure that they acquire a copy.'
