The atmosphere : an introduction to meteorology by Frederick K Lutgens( Book )

129 editions published between 1979 and 2020 in 3 languages and held by 2,288 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There are few aspects of the physical environment that influence our daily lives more than the phenomena we collectively call weather. Newspapers, magazines, and television stations regularly report a wide range of weather events as major news stories-an obvious reflection of people's fascination with the atmosphere. Humanity must also address important environmental problems related to the atmosphere. A basic meteorology course provides a foundation to satisfy our fundamental human curiosity about weather, and to understand the many environmental problems related to the atmosphere.This student-friendly text offers a current and comprehensive introduction to the atmosphere--its components, problems, and applications. It contains easy-to-understand and everyday examples that reinforce basic concepts and related science principles. The Atmosphere: An Introduction to Meteorology, 9/E retains the hallmark professors have come to expect from Tarbuck and Lutgens--a student-friendly writing style, coverage of the most recent atmospheric events, and carefully crafted, accurate, and appealing illustrations by the leading science illustrator, Dennis Tasa
