Book News Annotation:
Rohli (Louisiana State U.) and Vega (Clarion U. of Pennsylvania) introduce upper level undergraduates as well as beginning graduate students to the climatic system, outlining the differences between climatology and meteorology and including some advanced topics such as microscale transfer of energy, matter, and momentum; and equations essential to the field. Other topics include the atmosphere, the global water balance, climatic classification, climate impacts, and anthropogenic climatic changes.

Instructors are often challenged when teaching a course such as Climatology because of the wide range of background in subject matter among the students. Climatology provides a thorough foundation in the processes contributing to the condition of the climatic system for students with little background while still providing the depth and rigor sufficient for the upper-level undergraduate or introductory-level graduate course. Beginning with an overview of climatology basics, an introduction to the atmosphere, and a discussion on climatology vs. meteorology, the authors guide students in a thorough study of advanced climatology issues. From the climatology of storms, global climatic change, and atmospheric teleconnections, topics are covered in a fresh and contemporary style. With its comprehensive approach and accessible format, Climatology will prove to be the ideal text for your course!
