EXTREME WEATHER & CLIMATE is a unique textbook solution for the fast-growing market of non-majors science courses focused on extreme weather. With strong foundational coverage of the science of meteorology, EXTREME WEATHER & CLIMATE introduces the causes and impacts of extreme weather events and conditions. Students learn the science of meteorology in context of important and often familiar weather events such as Hurricane Katrina and they’ll explore how forecast changes in climate may influence frequency and/or intensity of future extreme weather events. An exciting array of photos and illustrations brings the intensity of weather and its sometimes devastating impact to every chapter. Written by a respected and unique author team, this book blends coverage found in Don Ahrens market-leading texts with insights and technology support contributed by co-author Perry Samson. Professor Samson has developed an Extreme Weather course at the University of Michigan that is the fastest-growing science course at the university.

Third Edition, by Lee M. Grenci and Jon M. Nese is not a typical meteorology text. This book not only teaches your students the basic concepts of meteorology, but also applies these concepts to hands-on laboratory exercises, thus promoting a deeper understanding of how the atmosphere works. Nearly 75% of this third edition of A World of Weather is new. The accessibility of forecasting tools on the Internet and the goal of life-long learning can be unified to give your students the opportunity to develop their skills in basic weather forecasting. A World of Weather contains two new chapters on weather forecasting and numerical weather prediction that will allow your students to assume the role of apprentice forecaster. These chapters are unique and revolutionary in the arena of general education in meteorology. Moreover, they are congruent with the authors resolute philosophy that students should be challenged while learning science. Also new to this edition is a revolutionary treatment of the cyclone model. For the first time in a basic text on meteorology, the authors present an understandable and coherent treatment of the cyclone model based on the Horatio Alger-like concept of self development, a positive feedback between cold advection, the strength of the 500 mb trough and the deepening surface flow. The new edition of A World of Weather more completely helps students to become critical weather consumers while setting the stage for life-long learning. The new edition of A World of Weather includes: * Laboratory exercises in each chapter that use real data so students can relate principles they learn to what happens in the atmosphere * Case studies of news-making weather events such as the Great Flood of 1993, Hurricane Andrew, and the Blizzard of 1993 * Revolutionary treatment of the cyclone model * New and complementary material on isoplething weather data * Full color illustrations providing enhanced visuals of subject m
