Meteorology Manual follows a similar concept to the well-received Astronomy Manual, aiming to provide an easy-to-read introduction for newcomers to the subject, while providing a sufficient level of detail to prove useful to those who also have a basic understanding of the subject. This extensively illustrated book will follow the familiar Haynes Manual style, with down-to-earth text, supported by colour diagrams and photographs, including, where appropriate, step-by-step sequences of cloud and weather system formations. There is increasing interest in learning about how weather systems are formed, what causes variations in the weather, and how to study and predict the movement of weather systems to enable weather forecasting, all which can be found in this book.

In many parts of the world, the weather forms a daily topic of conversation. In other parts, the weather hardly changes from one week to the next. However, human life is governed by the weather, which affects much of our activity, from farming to fishing and from shopping to holiday-making. For students and interested amateurs wanting a topical guide to this complex area of study, Introducing Meteorology provides a succinct overview of the science of the weather. Copiously illustrated, the book describes the development of the science, weather observation, the atmosphere, and the forces which govern the weather. It then discusses weather influences at global and local scales before describing the science of weather forecasting. The book's technical terms are kept to a minimum and are explained in a glossary. *** ..".excellent and enlightening resource, highly recommended for undergraduate and public library collections." - The Midwest book Review, Library Bookwatch, The Science Shelf, May 2013 *** "Introducing Meteorology is a most welcome addition to the bookshelves of students, interested amateurs, meteorology educators, and those who simply enjoy a readable, affordable book on the weather. Jon Shonk has created a marvelously succinct and up-to-date introduction to weather that serves a variety of audiences and purposes extremely well. I hope this is only the first of many excellent books from this young scientist." - American Meteorological Society, November 2013 [Subject: Meteorology, Earth Science, Atmospheric Science, Natural Science]

Weather Analysis and Forecasting: Applying Satellite Water Vapor Imagery and Potential Vorticity Analysis, Second Edition, is a step-by-step essential training manual for forecasters in meteorological services worldwide, and a valuable text for graduate students in atmospheric physics and satellite meteorology. In this practical guide, P. Santurette, C.G. Georgiev, and K. Maynard show how to interpret water vapor patterns in terms of dynamical processes in the atmosphere and their relation to diagnostics available from numerical weather prediction models. In particular, they concentrate on the close relationship between satellite imagery and the potential vorticity fields in the upper troposphere and lower stratosphere. These applications are illustrated with color images based on real meteorological situations over mid-latitudes, subtropical and tropical areas. Presents interpretation of the water vapor channels 6.2 and 7.3μm as well as advances based on satellite data to improve understanding of atmospheric thermodynamics Improves by new schemes the understanding of upper-level dynamics, midlatitudes cyclogenesis and fronts over various geographical areas Provides analysis of deep convective phenomena to better understand the development of strong thunderstorms and to improve forecasting of severe convective events Includes efficient operational forecasting methods for interpretation of data from NWP models Offers information on satellite water vapor images and potential vorticity fields to analyse and forecast convective phenomena and thunderstorms

This fascinating and well-illustrated book, which is packed with valuable information and advice, provides a complete guide to observing, recording and understanding the weather and to setting up an amateur weather station. As the author explains, the advent of relatively modern electronic weather sensors means that weather observing is now within the reach of almost everybody. Moreover, thanks to computer software and the internet, it is easier than ever before to record and share with others your weather data and observations. The book considers why it is useful and interesting to set up a weather station and observe the weather, and outlines many different types of weather. It explains how to get started and describes the instruments that are available to the amateur meteorologist. It further demonstrates how good observations can be made using some simple instruments, or, in some instances, no instruments at all. It discusses clouds, snow, wind, optical phenomena, thunder dust, ash and hail and examines atmospheric pressure, precipitation, thermometer screens, air temperature and humidy, soil and surface temperatures and evaporation. It covers sunshine and solar radiation, and also local weather and climate and includes a valuable chapter on instrument and computer software suppliers. Essential reading for all those with an interest in observing and understanding the weather, and superbly illustrated with 132 colour photographs and 20 charts & graphs.

Clouds have been objects of delight and fascination throughout human history, their fleeting magnificence and endless variety having inspired scientists and daydreamers alike. Described by Aristophanes as “the patron goddesses of idle men,” clouds and the ever-changing patterns they create have long symbolized the restlessness and unpredictability of nature, and yet they are also the source of life-giving rains. In this book, Richard Hamblyn examines clouds in their cultural, historic, and scientific contexts, exploring their prevalence in our skies as well as in our literature, art, and music. As Hamblyn shows, clouds function not only as a crucial means of circulating water around the globe but also as a finely tuned thermostat regulating the planet’s temperature. He discusses the many different kinds of clouds, from high, scattered cirrus clouds to the plump thought-bubbles of cumulus clouds, even exploring man-made clouds and clouds on other planets. He also shows how clouds have featured as meaningful symbols in human culture, whether as ominous portents of coming calamities or as ethereal figures giving shape to the heavens, whether in Wordsworth’s poetry or today’s tech speak. Comprehensive yet compact, cogent and beautifully illustrated, this is the ultimate guidebook to those shapeshifters of the sky.
