This lab manual’s 18 exercises encourage readers to review important ideas and concepts through problem solving, simulations, and guided thinking. The graphics program and seven computer-based simulations and tutorials help to convey key concepts. Designed to accompany any meteorology book, it features a two-column format with perforated pages for easy use in the lab. Interactive computer modules are presented as Flash applets, examining topics such as Earth-Sun geometry, radiation fluxes, moisture, hurricanes, and climate controls. A CD containing seven modules of simulations and tutorials has been completely revised to run in with Flash, offering a more user-friendly interface and a higher degree of interactivity. This software is bound into every new copy of the Exercise manual.
