Atmosphere (ISBN10: 0137429746; ISBN13: 9780137429745)
ISBN13: 978-0137429745
ISBN10: 0137429746

Summary: Appropriate for introductory courses in Introduction to Meteorology, Introduction to Weather and Climate, and Introduction to the Atmosphere, offered by departments of Geography, Physical Sciences, Meteorology, Earth Sciences, Geology, or Physics.

This text offers a current and comprehensive introduction to the atmosphere, its components, problems, and applications.

NEW--Significantly revised art and photo program.Most of the maps and artwork we ...show morere substantially revised in order to increase both the size of the individual pieces of art, and to increase the clarity of visual presentation. See figures 2-5, 3-9, 3-14, 3-15, 4-2, 7-5, 9-1, 9-9, 11-4, and 15-5 as examples. The outstanding line art, maps, and photographs aid in student understanding, add realism, and heighten student interest.

NEW--Strong, updated examples of environmental issues, such as ozone depletion, global warming, acid rain, and air pollution, allow instructors to demonstrate relevance of the subject matter to students.

Section on Ozone Depletion -- A Global Issue in Chapter 1 and entire chapters on Air Pollution (Chapter 13) and Climate Change (Chapter 14).

Continued Strong Emphasis on Readability: The text was substantially re-written to produce the most "user-friendly" book available on the topic (see Chapter 3 sections on World Distribution of Temperature,and Cycles of Air Temperature, Chapter 4 section on Humidity,and Chapter 14 section on How Do We Detect Climate Change? for examples). Changes to the prose include reduced sentence length, new chapter organization and flow, and a more personal writing style.

NEW--Up-to-Date coverage of severe weather events including recent examples and case studies.

Includes coverage of the record-setting 1995 hurricane season and examples drawn from the 1996 season.

NEW--Updated special interest boxes explore applications and provide interesting examples and related science principles without disrupting the flow of the chapter.

Box 1-1 (Earth as a System), Box 2-2 (The Ultraviolet Index), and Box 14-2 (Climate Change Recorded in Glacial Ice).

Contains a quantitative component (though the book is largely nontechnical) by using appropriate boxes and chapter-end problems to allow instructors to add some quantitative rigor and explanation.

See Boxes 2-3 (Radiation Laws), 5-3 (Forces Acting on Cloud Droplets and Raindrops), 6-3 (Pressure Gradient Force), 6-4 (Coriolis Force); Appendix D (Laws Relating to Gases); and Chapter-End Problems (Chapters 2, 5&7).

Organizational flexibility allows many chapters to be rearranged or omitted without losing continuity. For example, Chapter 13 on Air Pollution and Chapter 16 on Optics can be covered at any time.
