Exercises in Meteorology

  • Paperback
This manual may be used in any introductory meteorology course, with or without a separate laboratory session. Although this manual follows closely the ideas and concepts found in most standard textbooks, it does not attempt to follow precisely the particular content and organization of any one book. The sequence of chapters may be altered or the exercises regrouped to suit your instructional approach. Exercises that deal with long-term data, for instance appear in several chapters but could be regrouped to be used with the chapter on climate.

Highly flexible in format, this basic exercise manual is designed for a wide range of uses, offering balanced coverage of traditional topics and a great variety of practical exercises that vary in rigor and emphasize the use of real data. Supportive text and finely focused study questions are included to both help readers "discover" the meaning and significance of conditions from actual weather/atmospheric data, and to reinforce basic concepts and interrelationships among topics. Discusses traditional topics such as the atmosphere, Earth-sun relationships, solar radiation, climate and climatic analysis, etc. Topics place great emphasis throughout on working with real data. Gives special treatment to the weather map as a basic tool.
