The Atmosphere: An Introduction to Meteorology by Dennis Tasa
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


For Introduction to Meteorology, Introduction to Weather and Climate, and Introduction to the Atmosphere courses in the departments of Geography, Physical Sciences, Meteorology, Earth Sciences, Geology, and Physics. Using everyday, easy-to-grasp examples to reinforce basic concepts, this highly regarded text remains the standard introduction to meteorology and the atmosphere - their components, problems, and applications. This revision retains the hallmarks professors have come to expect from Tarbuck and Lutgens: a student-friendly narrative, timely coverage of recent atmospheric events, and carefully crafted artwork by leading science illustrator Dennis Tasa.
