Meteorology Today 1st Canadian edition is the first textbook of its type written specifically with the needs of the Canadian market and its unique meteorological environment in mind. This first Canadian edition builds upon the tried and tested strengths of the Ahrens Meteorology series and provides a more relevant resource for Canadian students and instructors by ensuring that Canadian content, practices, conventions and examples are used throughout. An Earth Systems feature ? the first of its kind in Ahrens ? has been developed for this edition, presenting the interconnectedness of elements, and providing a peek at the chapter content. This ?visual table of contents? highlights the Earth system components reflected in each chapter (the atmosphere; hydrosphere, cryosphere, lithosphere, biosphere and anthrosphere). The relationships between the chapter?s content and Earth systems are further expanded upon in the introduction of each chapter.

This text describes those tropospheric structures large enough to play a role in weather analysis — air masses and patterns in wind and other variables. Describes all important large-scale structures of the atmosphere — and their physical relationships; presents conceptual models of atmospheric phenomena and structures with schematic drawings and with examples on synoptic charts; provides relevant physical and mathematical description of basic interrelations. MARKETS:For courses in Weather Analysis, Weather Analysis and Forecasting, Synoptic Meteorology, Atmospheric Circulation Systems.

This report addresses the transition of research satellites, instruments, and calculations into operational service for accurately observing and predicting the Earth's environment. These transitions, which take place in large part between NASA and NOAA, are important for maintaining the health, safety, and prosperity of the nation, and for achieving the vision of an Earth Information System in which quantitative information about the complete Earth system is readily available to myriad users. Many transitions have been ad hoc, sometimes taking several years or even decades to occur, and others have encountered roadblocks-lack of long-range planning, resources, institutional or cultural differences, for instance-and never reached fruition. Satellite Observations of Earth's Environment recommends new structures and methods that will allow seamless transitions from research to practice.

Engage Students in Learning About Atmospheric Processes Aguado/Burts Understanding Weather and Climate illustrates meteorology and climatology using everyday occurrences and inspired technology tutorials to engage students in learning about atmospheric processes and patterns. The Seventh Edition extends coverage of global climate change with new and unique sections covering oceans and climate in the Earth system. Each chapter also focuses on the human aspect of weather and climate, covering high interest weather-related hazards that draw students into the course, while incorporating the latest science and the most relevant issues. This program will provide a better teaching and learning experience. Heres how: * Integrated Mobile-Ready Videos: Students use their mobile devices to scan Quick Response (QR) codes in the book to view videos, for just-in-time visualization of key meteorological concepts and applications. * Engage Students with Real-World Applications and Environmental Impacts: Case Studiescover weather hazards and how they impact people and society.* Emphasis on Oceans and Climate and on Climate Change: New and unique coverage on Oceans and their role in regulating weather and climate has been added in chapters 8, 15, and 16. * Focus on Fundamentals and Learning Path: Greater focus on the scientific method and basic concepts to help guide students. MasteringMeteorology is not included. Students, if MasteringMeteorology is a recommended/mandatory component of the course, please ask your instructor for the correct ISBN. MasteringMeteorology should only be purchased when required by an instructor. Instructors, contact your Pearson representative for more information. MasteringMeteorology with eText for Understanding Weather and Climate is an online homework, tutorial, and assessment product designed to personalize learning and improve results. With a wide range of interactive, engaging, and assignable activities, students are encouraged to actively learn and retain tough course concepts.
