Essentials of the Earth's Climate System free pdf This concise introduction to modern climatology covers the key topics for intermediate undergraduate students on one-semester courses.

A historical perspective of climatology is woven throughout, providing students with an insight into key scientists and technological developments. Each chapter concludes with a summary of the main points and a mixture of review and discussion questions, encouraging students to check their understanding and think critically. A list of key web links to data and other resources, and solutions and hints to answers to the student questions (password-protected for instructors) are provided online to complete the teaching package.
