Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Global Physical Climatology is an introductory text devoted to the fundamental physical principles and problems of climate sensitivity and change. Addressing some of the most critical issues in climatology, this text features incisive coverage of topics that are central to understanding orbital parameter theory for past climate changes, and for anthropogenic and natural causes of near-future changes--

Key Features

* Covers the physics of climate change

* Examines the nature of the current climate and its previous changes

* Explores the sensitivity of climate and the mechanisms by which humans are likely to produce near-future climate changes

* Provides instructive end-of-chapter exercises and appendices

Book News Annotation:

The first seven chapter are designed for a 10-week, upper- division undergraduate course for atmospheric science majors; the addition of the other five chapters and readings from the current literature make it suitable for a graduate course. Unlike most climatology textbooks, written from the perspective of physics rather than geography. Includes an extensive glossary without pronunciation.

Synopsis:

The science of climatology began to evolve rapidly in the last third of the twentieth century. This rapid development arose from several causes. During this period, the view of the Earth from its moon made people more aware of the exceptional nature of their planetary home at about the same time that it became widely understood that humans could alter our global environment.
