Third Edition, by Lee M. Grenci and Jon M. Nese is not a typical meteorology text. This book not only teaches your students the basic concepts of meteorology, but also applies these concepts to hands-on laboratory exercises, thus promoting a deeper understanding of how the atmosphere works. Nearly 75% of this third edition of A World of Weather is new. The accessibility of forecasting tools on the Internet and the goal of life-long learning can be unified to give your students the opportunity to develop their skills in basic weather forecasting. A World of Weather contains two new chapters on weather forecasting and numerical weather prediction that will allow your students to assume the role of apprentice forecaster. These chapters are unique and revolutionary in the arena of general education in meteorology. Moreover, they are congruent with the authors resolute philosophy that students should be challenged while learning science. Also new to this edition is a revolutionary treatment of the cyclone model. For the first time in a basic text on meteorology, the authors present an understandable and coherent treatment of the cyclone model based on the Horatio Alger-like concept of self development, a positive feedback between cold advection, the strength of the 500 mb trough and the deepening surface flow. The new edition of A World of Weather more completely helps students to become critical weather consumers while setting the stage for life-long learning. The new edition of A World of Weather includes: * Laboratory exercises in each chapter that use real data so students can relate principles they learn to what happens in the atmosphere * Case studies of news-making weather events such as the Great Flood of 1993, Hurricane Andrew, and the Blizzard of 1993 * Revolutionary treatment of the cyclone model * New and complementary material on isoplething weather data * Full color illustrations providing enhanced visuals of subject m

A lively, inspiring account of the pioneers who sought to accurately predict the weather Benjamin Franklin . . . James P. Espy . . . Cleveland Abbe . . . Carl-Gustaf Rossby . . . Jule G. Charney . . . just a few of the remarkable individuals who struggled against formidable odds to understand the atmosphere and predict the weather. Where they saw patterns and processes, others saw randomness and tumult-and yet they strove to make their voices heard, often saving lives in the process. Storm Watchers takes you on a fascinating journey through time that captures the evolution of weather forecasting. From the age when meteorology was considered one step removed from sorcery to the modern-day wizardry of supercomputers, John Cox introduces you to the pioneering scientists whose work fulfilled an ancient dream and made it possible to foretell the future. He tells the little-known stories of these weathermen, such as Ptolemy's weather predictions based on astrology, John Finley's breakthrough research in identifying tornadoes, and Tor Bergeron's new techniques of weather forecasting, which contributed to its final worldwide acceptance. Filled with extraordinary tales of bravery and sacrifice, Storm Watchers will make you think twice the next time you turn on the local news to catch the weather report.

With maps, photos and illuminating text, Tom Horne explains what to expect, how to prepare for, and how to enjoy the best and the worst of America's flying weather. Readers can learn what to expect before embarking on a new trip. Despite quantum leaps in cockpit technology, weather radar and forecasting techniques, flying often boils down to "someone sitting in a cramped cockpit somewhere, trying for all he's worth to figure out what meaning those clouds up ahead have for him." An understanding of how larger climatic forces affect each region's specific patterns can give that lone pilot the edge, and this edge is what Flying America's Weather is all about. This illuminating book takes us on a pilot's tour of our nation's weather, from the brilliant blue of the Hawaiian Islands to the black and gray monster that is the Nor'Easter — and everything in between. It shows a grand and diverse country, dominated regionally by grand, diverse, and understandable patterns of weather. Flying America's Weather combines decades of climate research with hands-on experience, an awareness of larger weather forces at work on local geography, and critical examples of how weather contributes to aviation accidents. It focuses on what weather we can expect from the areas we fly in, yet provides a deep understanding of why it's there. In doing so, Flying America's Weather becomes an indispensable guide for all pilots, wherever they fly.
