Summary

METEOROLOGY TODAY, SIXTH EDITION shows students the dynamic nature of the atmosphere with current, relevant information. By conveying meteorological concepts in a visually stimulating and practical manner, while simultaneously providing a comprehensive background in basic meteorology, this book aids students in their understanding and appreciation of our Earth's dynamic atmosphere. This provides a perfect blend of theory and application in meteorology. The book features a traditional yet modular organization, moving from atmospheric elements to air movement to severe weather, and finally to climate and global change. This logical order of topics gives the instructor flexibility to cover the chapters in any order. In METEOROLOGY TODAY, SIXTH EDITION, students learn how to actively observe with topics directly related to everyday weather experiences. The text stresses the understanding and application of meteorological principles in a clear and accessible writing style. Ahrens teaches readers to watch the weather so that it becomes "alive," allowing them to immediately apply textbook material to the world around them. This text contains extensive new features that significantly address the market needs of accuracy, currency, and earlier presentation of mapping and forecasting, with a greatly enhanced technology package. BLUE SKIES™ COLLEGE EDITION, the most innovative, comprehensive CD and web site in meteorology, is included with every new copy of the text. It features interactive images, simulations, animations, assessment, and live Internet data and image feeds.
