Description: Eloquent Scienceevolved from a workshop aimed at offering undergraduate atmospheric science students formal guidance in communications, tailored for their eventual scientific careers. Drawing on advice from over twenty books and hundreds of other sources, this volume presents informative and often humorous tips for writing scientific journal articles, while also providing a peek behind the curtain into the operations of editorial boards and publishers of major journals. The volume is divided into three parts: writing, reviewing, and speaking, each of which is aimed at the domain of the student or scientist at the start of her career; the volume offers tips on poster presentations, media communication, and advice for non-native speakers of English, as well as appendices on proper punctuation usage, meteorological concepts, and commonly misused English words. Further reading sections at the end of each chapter suggest additional sources for the interested reader, and sidebars written by experts in the field offer diverse viewpoints on reference topics important to its reader.
