The Atmosphere: An Introduction to Meteorology, Thirteenth Edition, is designed to meet the needs of students who enroll in such a course. It is our hope that the knowledge gained by taking a class and using this book will encourage many to actively participate in bettering the environment, and others may be sufficiently stimulated to continue their study of meteorology. Equally important, however, is our belief that a basic understanding of the atmosphere and its processes will greatly enhance appreciation of our planet and thereby enrich the reader's life"--

PEARSON
Reinforcing basic concepts with everyday, easy-to-grasp examples, this highly regarded volume remains the standard introduction to meteorology and the atmosphere – components, problems, and applications. The Eleventh Edition retains hallmark Tarbuck/Lutgens features: a friendly, largely non-technical narrative, timely coverage of recent atmospheric events, and carefully crafted artwork by leading science illustrator Dennis Tasa. The authors continue to provide current reports, including discussion and photos of “Super Tuesday” (the day of many 2008 presidential primaries) and the tornado outbreak in 24 states. The chapter on climate changeis updated to includethe findings presented in the fourth assessment of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. The book's Companion Website is fully updated.
