6th Edition Now Available!

A current, thorough, conversational, and scientifically sound resource on meteorology.

A World of Weather: Fundamentals of Meteorology presents basic principles that enable students to gain a “thorough possession” of the underlying scientific principles of meteorology and to be able to think critically about them. This text shows how fundamental concepts fit together to form a conceptual pyramid that explains how the atmosphere really works. It shows students how to apply the concepts learned by offering examples based on real weather data.

A World of Weather is:

  • designed for lifelong learning – students are given the design, tools, and building blocks to construct their own pyramid of learning.
  • written in a conversational style – this encourages students to engage in the material.
  • hands-on – students experience real weather data through the NEW online component.

A World of Weather features:

  • common unit conversion formulas and a description of Metric (SI) orders of magnitude.
  • information on building and interpreting the station model.
  • Weather Folklore and Commentary in many chapters.
  • Focus on Optics sections that expose students to the colorful wonders of the sky.
  • Electronic Resources housed on a monitored website.

NEW to the 6th edition:

  • Reflects recent weather events, including a nor’easter in January 2016, California’s wet winter 2016-2017, El Niño, Hurricane Harvey, and more!
  • Introduces the Regional Snowfall Index (RSI), a relatively new technique to rank snowstorms regionally according to their societal impacts.
  • Features an introduction to dual polarization radar, a relatively new tool in a weather forecaster’s toolbox.
  • Includes considerable updates to the chapter titled Human Impact on Weather and Climate (i.e. climate change).
  • Now has online assessments and online learning and teaching resources for students and instructors. It features more than 100 new laboratory and interactive exercises!
