More About This Textbook

Overview

Meteorology Today has for many years been one of the most widely used and authoritative texts for the introductory meteorology course. Each edition is extensively reviewed by leading researchers in the field to ensure that the text remains completely up-to-date and reflects today's current understanding of meteorological concepts. Author Donald Ahrens has been widely praised for his ability to explain relatively complicated ideas so that even under-prepared students can understand them. The text's clear and inviting presentation is supplemented by numerous pedagogical features that help augment students' understanding. Introductory stories found at the beginning of each chapter draws students naturally into the discussion. In-chapter reviews then help students to consolidate their understanding as they read, while four types of end-of-chapter exercises provide opportunities for everything from further review to in-class discussion questions. Graphics are carefully designed and subsequently refined so that the key ideas clearly emerge. Many of the photos in the book are taken by the author and provide unmatched images of dramatic weather phenomena.

A unique and popular feature over this title's seven editions has been the foldout cloud chart at the back of the book. The package of teaching and learning tools to accompany this text will now include course management, and a FREE, brand-new, student tutorial system - MeteorologyNow. MeteorologyNow is Web-based, assessment-driven, completely flexible, and contains a wealth of book-specific interactivities. It also offers a personalized learning plan based on each student's assessment results, helping the student focus on the conceptsthey don't yet understand. This complete teaching package provides each student with fun, interactive learning opportunities and an even greater chance for success.

    College Text that's a great intro to weather for 8th grade and up

    The 5th edition of this text was the one I had to use for my met classes in Plymouth, NH, back in 1993-97. I loved it, and I still leaf through it when I get pulled away from what it's all about! All editions of this book, though, are a great way to introduce young people planning on college in a few years, to the amazing world of weather. It's written in a casual way that isn't intimidating, and it *doesn't* assume you are a meteorology major who's already taken Calculus and University Physics. On the other hand, it also is interesting enough to keep meteorology majors interested in it, too, and I think it would appeal to a wide range of ages. Advanced 8th graders, as well as all high-schoolers and anyone who's graduated from high school should be able to read and understand this book without a problem. Definitely recommended if you want to learn more about the weather than what you see on the evening news.
