-Guy M. Robinson, Kingston University
"I've used "Atmosphere, Weather and Climate in my introductory and upper division physical geography and weather and climate courses in both the US and Canada. The authors have done a superb job incorporating new discoveries into an already well-written text."
-Dr. Steve LaDochy, Department of Geography and Urban Analysis, California State University, Los Angeles
"A comprehensive treatment of the principles and processes that determine the spatial and temporal variability of our weather and climate."
-O. W. Archibold, Department of Geography, University of Saskatchewan
"It is likely to stay in the vanguard ofrecommended texts into the next millennium."
-Progress in Physical Geography
Atmosphere, Weather and Climate is the essential introduction to weather processes and climatic conditions around the world, their observed variability and changes, and projected future trends. Extensively revised and updated, this eighth edition retains its popular tried and tested structure while incorporating recent advances in the field. From clear explanations of the basic physical and chemical principles of the atmosphere, to descriptions of regional climates and their changes, Atmosphere, Weather and Climate presents a comprehensive coverage of global meteorology and climatology. In this new edition, the latest scientific ideas are expressed in a clear, non-mathematical manner. New features include: * new introductory chapter on the evolution and scope of meteorology and climatology * new chapter on climatic models and climate system feedbacks * updated analysis of atmospheric composition, weather and climate in middle latitudes, atmospheric and oceanic motion, tropical weather and climate, and small-scale climates * chapter on climate variability and change has been completely updated to take account of the findings of the IPCC 2001 scientific assessment * new more attractive and accessible text design * new pedagogical features include: learning objectives at the beginning of each chapter and discussion questions at their ending, and boxes on topical subjects and twentieth-century advances in the field.
