Media reviews
A comprehensive introduction to weather and climate, describing phenomena from cloud scale to global scale in a very accessible way. Dave Gutzler, University of New Mexico "This book provides an excellent overview of the climate system from the global to the local scale. It is excellently written at a level that provides detail, whilst being accessible at the introductory level. It is my first choice for the core text for my intermediate level undergraduate climatology course." Julie Jones, Sheffield University, UK
