by Richard Snow, John E. Hidore, et a.

Taking the study of atmospheric science beyond the daily weather map, Climatology explores the broader impacts of weather and climate. The authors cover multiple facets of climate, many of which play a significant role in everyday life—and examine many topics, such as past climates, that are seldom adequately covered in other introductions to the subject. The science behind widely publicized events is explained within the systematic coverage of climate and climatology. The relationships between climate and peopleare discussed in detail, and readers are shown how common things ranging from wind-chill to architecture are understood in the wider context of climate. In the Third Edition, data and information have been updated throughout and significant coverage is devoted to climate change. Climatology in the World Today; Energy and the Climate System; Atmospheric Temperatures; Climate and the Hydrologic Cycle; Wind and Circulation Patterns; Atmosphere-Ocean Interactions; Air Mass and Synoptic Climatology; Air Mass and Synoptic Climatology; Climatology of Atmospheric Storms; Natural Causes of Climate Change; Reconstruction of Past Climates; Greenhouse Gases and Global Warming; Climate Change and the Physical Environment; Climate Change and the Living World; Changes in Atmospheric Chemistry; Regional Climates: Scales of Study; Tropical Climates; Mid-Latitude Climates; Polar and Highland Climates; The Human Response to Climate; Climate, Agriculture, and Industry. A useful reference for anyone who wants to learn more about Earth’s climate and weather.

Awesome book!!

...This book wasn't so dry. If it's a required textbook, I fear for you. It's got relevant information, yes, but it's not really a readable textbook. Anything not connected with the book itself were awesome, though! Props!

The product itself was in good shape. I ordered it for my Climatology class and there's no rippped pages, marks, bent pages, etc. It's all good. The only reason I rate it four stars is because the content itself is kind of dry. Definitely informative, but I wish my professor would've chosen something a little less bland.

I have the 1st edition of this book so I want you to know that from the beginning.

I thought it was well written, covered a lot of ground, and explained things very well. Did it cover the whole topic in great depth? It didn't. NO book could manage that -- it's a very broad subject, but the authors do manage to cover most material at least a little, if not in depth. I have another book on climate by Wm. F. Ruddiman, which I haven't read yet. But I think that, overall, there aren't a lot of books on the topic and this one actually does a pretty good job at getting you started, even though it is dated. For a beginner like me I think they helped me a lot.

I have used this text for 10 years. My course was last taught using the 2nd edition, so I was excited to learn of a new edition. Immediately there was disappointment. The 3rd edition removed a number of graphs that actually required students to think about concepts and principles of chemistry and physics and apply them to atmospheric sciences like climatology. This removal of info was important, as it shows the authors actually removed content that was applicable to climatology. Although they do discuss some things that were under represented in the previous edition, it feels as though they have made things too simple. If you're going to buy a copy, get the second edition, because this one isn't as good. Hopefully when the 4th edition comes out, they will rectify the "dumbing down" of the 3rd edition of this text.

I am an educator and I chose this book for my course. I wish I hadn't. It is very superficial, and lists facts rather than explain the causes. There are several inconsistencies between figures and text (i.e. Ch. 6 states that "over the oceans the winds cross the isobars at angles of 10˚ to 20˚" and then the corresponding figure shows an angle of 30˚). It explains a lot of details more appropriate in a meteorology book, but doesn't explain the big features of climatology. It is also not logically organized. I'll pick another book next year.

I mean it's a book. I got an A in the class. Meh.
Excellent, delivery right on time!
