Atmosphere, Weather and Climate has established its reputation worldwide as the essential introduction to the study of atmosphere and world climate.

New features for the 7th edition incude: * extended coverage of regional climates - Australasia, sub-arctic and polar regions, and the former USSR * updated analysis of global warming, desertification, mid-latitude synoptic systems, local climates, the role of the oceans and atmosphere/earth/ocean interactions * new sections on thunderstorms, teleconnections, typhoon paths over Asia, Australian monsoons, boreal forest and tropical urban climates * discussion of environmental impacts of climate change and predicted changes over the next millenium. * coverage of the 1995 IPCC results on climate trends and projected responses * superb range of new illustrations including 4pp colour section * extended further reading, bibliography and chapter summaries.
