I'm learning Meteorology, and using the book

I know and understand the concepts of angular velocity, shear, curvature, differentiation, and partial differentiation but for some reason, which is latent to me, I cannot understand anything that the book has done. Will you please explain it to me?

**Atmospheric Science**by Wallace and Hobbs. We're discussing the kinematics of the winds (fluids). I shall post some images to say what I don't understand. This is how they define their natural coordinate systemAt any point on the surface one can define a pair of axes of a sys- tem of natural coordinates (s, n), where s is arc length directed downstream along the local streamline, and n is distance directed normal to the streamline and toward the left,
