Essentials of the Earth's Climate System Paperback / softback


This concise introduction to modern climatology covers the key topics for intermediate undergraduate students on one-semester courses.

The treatment of topics is non-mathematical wherever possible, instead focusing on physical processes to allow students to grasp concepts more easily.

Full-color illustrations support the text and supplementary topics are covered in boxes, enabling students to further increase their knowledge and awareness.

A historical perspective of climatology is woven throughout, providing students with an insight into key scientists and technological developments.

Each chapter concludes with a summary of the main points and a mixture of review and discussion questions, encouraging students to check their understanding and think critically.

A list of key web links to data and other resources, and solutions and hints to answers to the student questions (password-protected for instructors) are provided online to complete the teaching package.
