About

Overview

This authoritative resource covers all aspects of atmospheric sciences-including both theory and applications. Nearly 350 articles are enhanced by more than 1,900 figures and photographs, many in full-color. Encyclopedia of Atmospheric Sciences is an ideal resource for academia, government and industry in the fields of atmospheric, ocean and environmental sciences. It is written at a level that allows undergraduate students to understand the material, while providing active researchers with the latest information in the field.

This important work has been developed alongside the award-winning Encyclopedia of Ocean Sciences. Together, these references provide readers with a comprehensive resource and a link between these two fields.
