Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Updating the 2008 edition to reflect expanding applications of climate science and its greater role in public discourse on climate change, Rohli (Louisiana State U.) and Vega (Clarion U. of Pennsylvania) present modular chapters that introduce the basics of the field and its subfields, maps, recent trend data, and basic equations on the major processes and controls on the climate system. Advanced topics introduced include the global hydrologic cycle. Intended for upper-level undergraduate or introductory-level graduate courses, the text includes color plates, other illustrations, chapter review and reflection questions, a glossary, and companion website.

Synopsis:

Ideal for the upper-level undergraduate or introductory-level graduate courses, the second edition presents students with a thorough foundation on the climactic system. The authors begin with an overview of climatology basics, including a discussion on climatology versus meteorology and an introduction to the atmosphere. They then introduce more advanced concepts, such as microscale transfer of energy, matter, and momentum; the global water balance; global atmospheric circulation; climatic classification with special emphasis on the regional differences within the same climate types; and much more.
