About the Book

This modern climatology textbook explains those climates formed near the ground in terms of the cycling of energy and mass through systems.


`A fine text for students wishing to understand the physical processes ocurring near the earth's surface while avoiding the more mathematical approach adopted by many specialized micrometeorological texts.' - Royal Meteorological Society

`Text and diagrams are a model of clarity, logicality and precision, sensitively designed to appeal toall those seeking a basic but comprehensive and scrupulously scientific understanding of the processes in the lower kilometre or so of the atmosphere.' - World Meteorological Organisation
