Providing the perfect storm of rich media and active learning tools. The Atmosphere: An Introduction to Meteorology remains the definitive introductory meteorology text, reinforcing basic concepts with everyday, easy-to-grasp examples.

The Thirteenth Edition now incorporates a new active-learning approach, integrated mobile media, and MasteringMeteorology , the most complete, easy-to-use, engaging tutorial and assessment tool available. This edition also extends its coverage of global climate change with dedicated climate change features in each chapter, coverage of the IPCC 5th Assessment report, and an inquiry-based approach in updated Student Sometimes Ask features with interesting facts that strengthen the connection between students and the content. Students benefit from self-paced activities that feature immediate wrong-answer feedback and hints that emulate the office-hour experience to help keep students on track. With a wide range of interactive, engaging, and assignable activities, students are encouraged to actively learn and retain tough course concepts.
