Overview

This invaluable weather and climate workbook applies exercises to the material presented in the companion volume, Climatology: An Atmospheric Science. The book is designed to make complex mathematical, statistical and spatial analytical methods more easily understood by providing essential details of the topic under discussion and straightforward quantitative problems preceded by worked example. All data are supplied to make the exercises self-contained and the volume's climate rather then meteorologic presentation enables a wider view of atmospheric sciences than is normally available. KEY TOPICS: The authors examine the atmosphere, the energy balance, the seasons, temperature, central tendency and graphing, atmospheric moisture and precipitation distribution, air masses, fronts, and cyclones, winds and the global circulation, climate classification, climate types, change, indices and comfort, extreme events and statistical analysis as they apply to weather and climate. MARKET: For those interested in atmospheric science.
