Description:

A Thoroughly Updated New Edition of an Essential Resource in an Ever-evolving FieldIdeal for the upper-level undergraduate or introductory-level graduate course on climatology, the thoroughly updated third edition provides students with a comprehensive foundation of the climatic system. It begins with an overview of climatology basics, including a discussion on climatology versus meteorology and an introduction to the atmosphere. Also included in these introductory chapters is a discussion on air/sea interactions to assist readers in understanding this critical aspect of the earth/atmosphere system. Using a regional approach, discussions progress to more advanced concepts, such as microscale processes; climatic water balance; global atmospheric circulation; climatic classification; the spatial variability of climates; and much more. Presenting evidence-based contemporary information and data, Climatology, Third Edition encourages readers to think critically about the climate system while developing a sense of social responsibility. The comprehensive Third Edition provides up-to-date data on graphs and maps and introduces new key terms that have crept into the science and public discourse. With additional quantitative and paleoclimatology material, Climatology, Third Edition thoroughly explores the processes that make the climate the way it is today, making it an essential resource for students delving into this ever-evolving field.Key Features of the thoroughly updated Third Edition:Topics are carefully explained and supported with proper examples and analogies to assist readers in analyzing and retaining key concepts. Without the use of calculus, quantitative treatment is provided where necessary to explain the processes discussed, providing students with detailed explanation that is needed at this upper-level. Features numerous climographs and examples of climates from around the globe to illustrate the diversity of climate within each climate type. Covers recent events such as Hurricane/Superstorm Sandy and the eruption of Eyjafjallajokull in Iceland. Provides greater emphasis on current topics, including the "shale revolution," the behavior of the Pacific Decadal Oscillation, the weakening or possible reversal of "global dimming" in the 21st century, the importance of dimethyl sulfides as drivers and/or modulators of global climate change, and the 2012 sunspot maximum.
