Traditional in both structure and approach, this text offers a current and comprehensive introduction to the atmosphere, its components, problems, and applications.From the Back Cover:
There are few aspects of the physical environment that influence our daily lives more than the phenomena we collectively call weather. Newspapers, magazines, and television stations regularly report a wide range of weather events as major news stories—an obvious reflection of people's fascination with the atmosphere. Humanity must also address important environmental problems related to the atmosphere. A basic meteorology course provides a foundation to satisfy our fundamental human curiosity about weather, and to understand the many environmental problems related to the atmosphere.
The Atmosphere, 9/e meets the needs of beginning atmospheric-science students by providing a readable and user-friendly package of text and software. Together, these components provide a highly usable "tool" for learning basic meteorological principles and concepts.
