9780131015821: Understanding Weather and Climate

For courses in Introductory Meteorology.

This meteorology text focuses on explanation about—rather than description of—the processes that produce Earth's weather and climate. It emphasizes a non-mathematical understanding of physical principles as a vehicle for learning about atmospheric processes. Additionally, difficult-to-visualize topics are reinforced with a series of software tutorials presented on a CD-ROM packaged with the book.
