The AMS Weather Book is the most comprehensive, up-to-date guide to the weather and atmosphere. It covers everything from daily weather patterns to air pollution and global warming and explores the stories of people coping with severe weather and those who devote their lives to understanding the atmosphere, oceans, and climate. This volume is an invaluable tool for anyone who wants to better understand how weather works and how it affects our lives. It is also the ultimate reference for anyone working in the fields of meteorology and climatology.
Its companion CD, The Weather, Illustrated, provides over one hundred graphic illustrations in full color and exceptional detail. These graphics serve to illuminate and explain a host of atmospheric phenomena, from the Northern Lights and lake-effect snow to the jet stream and ocean currents. The concepts relate to our everyday lives, and this CD can be used in the classroom to complement the book or as an educational tool in its own right.
