Synopses & Reviews

Please note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.

Publisher Comments:

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.

Vertical Structure of the Atmosphere; Earth-Sun Geometry; The Surface Energy Budget; Simulating the Earth's Energy Budget; Atmospheric Moisture; Saturation and Atmospheric Stability; Cloud Droplets and Raindrops; Atmospheric Motion; Weather Map Analysis; Mid-Latitude Cyclones; Thunderstorms and Tornadoes; Hurricanes; Climate Controls; Climate Classification and World Climates; Climatic Variability and Change; Simulating Climatic Change; Dimensions and Units; Earth Measures; GeoClock; Weather Symbols.

A useful reference for anyone interested in learning more about weather and climate.
