9780321596253: Exercises for Weather and Climate (7th Edition)

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.
