Review:

'... a recommended read for the informed layman and student seeking a wider background in this topical but complex field.' Grant Bigg, Weather

'The book is well written, contains practically no mathematics and yet manages to explain, in a clear and attractive style, the subtleties of the subject ... I recommend it to everybody interested in the climate of our earth.' Michael Hantel, Meteoroligsche Zeitschrift

'... the book enthusiastically achieves its aims of not oversimplifying but explaining the complexities of what is well established and unknown about the climate system for a wider audience ...' Claire Goodess, International Journal of Climatology

'Burroughs is to be congratulated for having written a serious and up-to-date book that competently surveys many highly technical aspects of modern climate science but manages to do so in a non-mathematical manner.' American Meteorological Society

A concise presentation of current knowledge of climate change and its implications for society, this new edition is ideal for introductory courses within the departments of meteorology, oceanography, environmental science, earth science, geography, agriculture and social science.
