The Used, Rental and eBook copies of this book are not guaranteed to include any supplemental materials. Typically, only the book itself is included. This is true even if the title states it includes any access cards, study guides, lab manuals, CDs, etc.
Considered one of the best hands-on explorations of introductory meteorology concepts, this lab manual's 17 exercises encourage students to review important ideas and concepts through problem solving, simulations, and guided thinking. The graphics program and online interactive simulations and tutorials help students visualize and master key concepts. It is designed to complement any introductory meteorology or weather and climate text. The Eighth Editionretains Carbone's acclaimed combination of print labs with robust interactive digital modules, which promote critical thinking through data analysis, problem solving, and experimentation. It is updated throughout with the latest data and examples from the science, and includes many new exercises and new media in a new supporting website, including an entirely new lab on Forecasting. It is at a reduced price when packaged with selected Pearson Science texts.
Greg Carbone is Professor and Chair of the Department of Geography at the University of South Carolina. He received his PhD from the University of Wisconsin. He has worked on a number of funded research projects, and his areas of research include climate variability and change, climate impacts, and the use of climate information in the decision making of the water resource community. He regularly teaches introductory and advanced meteorology and climatology courses.
