Publisher Comments:

Highly flexible in format, this basic exercise manual is designed for a wide range of uses, offering balanced coverage of traditional topics and a great variety of practical exercises that vary in rigor and emphasize the use of real data. Supportive text and finely focused study questions are included to both help readers “discover” the meaning and significance of conditions from actual weather/atmospheric data, and to reinforce basic concepts and interrelationships among topics. Discusses traditional topics such as the atmosphere, Earth-sun relationships, solar radiation, climate and climatic analysis, etc. Topics place great emphasis throughout on working with real data. Gives special treatment to the weather map as a basic tool.
