Taking the study of atmospheric science beyond the daily weather map, Climatology explores the broader impacts of weather and climate. The authors cover multiple facets of climate, many of which play a significant role in everyday life-and examine many topics, such as past climates that are seldom adequately covered in other introductory texts. The science behind widely publicized events is explained within the systematic coverage of climate and climatology. In the Third Edition, data and information have been updated throughout and significant coverage is devoted to climate change.
