Thefifth edition of A World of Weather by Lee M. Grenci and Jon M. Nese, encourages students to think critically about scientific concepts and show them how to apply those concepts by offering examples and exercises based on real weather data. Non-traditional problems and real-life examples using weather data from previous storms support the hands-on approach.
This text also includes an online chapter which explores numerical weather prediction. By having this chapter available online, the authors have designed real-time exercises related to weather forecasting specifically for students to apply the principles they learn to current weather patterns.
All of these features make A World of Weather a valuable teaching tool for introductory courses at both large and small universities, including colleges that do not have a meteorology program and offer only one course in weather.
A World of Weather provides the tools and building blocks so that you can construct your own pyramid of learning. A World of Weather gives your students the skills and knowledge of meteorology that will pave the way for life-long learning.
