This updated and enhanced sixth edition of ESSENTIALS OF METEOROLOGY is written by the widely read and authoritative author in introductory meteorology—Donald Ahrens. Ahrens's ability to explain relatively complicated ideas in a student-friendly, manageable fashion will allow you to easily visualize the principles of meteorology. ESSENTIALS OF METEOROLOGY is completely updated with over 250 new images and figures and the latest research and coverage.
An introduction to topics related to everyday experiences with weather: the atmosphere, temperature, clouds and precipitation, wind, storms, air pollution, and more.
C. Donald Ahrens is Emeritus Professor at Modesto Junior College and the author of two best-selling textbooks for Cengage Learning.
