Atmosphere, Weather, and Climate

Synopsis

Atmosphere, Weather and Climate has established its reputation worldwide as the essential introduction to the study of atmosphere and world climate. Rigorously revised and updated, the 7th edition retains its popular tried and tested structure and remains the most comprehensive guide to the earth's weather processes, climatic conditions, and human impacts on climate change.

The most topical issues of global change and responses to climate, and the latest scientific ideas, are expressed in a clear, non-mathematical manner. New features for the 7th edition include extended coverage of 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; and new sections on thunderstorms, teleconnections, typhoon paths over Asia, Australian monsoons, boreal forest and tropical urban climates.
