About this book

Discussion of atmospheric processes, and analysis of climates in both natural and man-modified environments. Suitable for undergraduates studying ecology, geography, and meteorology.

Undoubtedly destined to become a classic. The treatment is sensitively pitched at a level for the non-meteorological specialist in a variety of disciplines in geography, agriculture, forestry, ecology, engineering and planning.
-"World Meteorological Organization Bulletin
"This well established climatology text explains the climates formed near the ground in terms of the cycling of energy and mass through systems . . . In this second edition, Professor Oke provides a fuller description of the atmospheric layers and gives more emphasis to the whole planetary boundary layer. There are nearly 50 new figures and new material on radiation geometry, the nature of thermals and convective cloud, leaf-air exchange, evapotranspiration from crops and forests, effects of topography on air flow, and the energy balance of cities."
