Rising interest in climate change and severe weather phenomena are driving up enrollment in today’s meteorology courses – yet this fast-paced, one-semester curriculum is packed with complex physical concepts that often challenge students. In Aguado/Burt’s Understanding Weather & Climate, a first-rate textbook combines inspired technology tutorials to engage students in learning about atmospheric behavior. The authors use everyday occurrences to illustrate meteorology and climatology. Dynamic illustrations from the book come to life in the new, fully integrated MyMeteorologyLab website, where students have access to resources such animated tutorials, videos, and satellite loops of atmospheric phenomena. While staying true to the text’s rigorous and quantitative approach, the Sixth Edition incorporates the latest science, the most relevant issues, and new media to both teach and visualize the toughest topics, always while maintaining focus on the student.
