This chapter introduces relevant atmospheric terms used throughout the book. It is also an attempt to describe the hydrostatic nature of the atmosphere and to touch on the fundamental tropospheric and stratospheric circulations. Besides these large-scale circulations, two selected atmospheric subtleties investigated at DLR’s Institute of Atmospheric Physics (IPA) are presented: the extra-tropical tropopause inversion layer and mesoscale stratospheric mountain waves.
