Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: Written for the undergraduate, introductory course, the updated Fourth Edition engages students with real-world examples and a captivating narrative. It highlights how we observe the atmosphere and then uses those discoveries to explain atmospheric phenomena. The text begins with discussions on primary atmospheric variables involved in the formation of weather: pressure, temperature, moisture, clouds, and precipitation, and include practical information on weather maps and weather observation. It then progresses to discuss weather and climate topics such as the interaction between atmosphere amd ocean, severe/extreme weather, weather forecasting, and climate change.
