Product Description
For introductory meteorology courses.   Provide 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 easy-to-grasp, everyday examples. Authors Tarbuck and Lutgens present meteorology with a friendly, largely non-technical narrative, timely coverage of recent atmospheric events, and carefully crafted artwork by leading science illustrator Dennis Tasa.   The 14th Edition includes a new, easier-to-navigate design, and a more reader-oriented approach that provides a clear learning path throughout the text. New pedagogical improvements, including pull quotes that act as guideposts, end-of-chapter questions and problems, and online exercises and activities, are available in Mastering™ Meteorology to help readers understand the processes that control our weather and apply this information in their daily lives.   Also available packaged with Mastering Meteorology or as an easy-to-use, standalone Pearson eText Mastering™ is the teaching and learning platform that empowers you to reach every student.
