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.
