About this book

Introductory text devoted to the fundamental physical principles and problems of climate sensitivity and change.

Few textbooks presently give such a comprehensive and clear account of the complexities of the climate system. Throughout, the book is very readable and I recommend it thoroughly. --Grant Bigg in Weather "...contains useful information on all aspects of physical climatology from boundary layer processes to global models. It has a good index which allows ready access to specific subjects...will be useful to students wanting more than a descriptive approach to climatology." --GEOGRAPHICS
