The atmosphere plays a dominant role in shaping the physical environment and in controlling activities and responses in the cultural environment. Atmospheric Processes and Systems provides insight to the understanding of such extraordinary atmospheric events as El Nino.
Russell D. Thompson examines different aspects of the mass, energy and circulation systems observed in the atmosphere, and provides detailed accounts of specific phenomena, including atmospheric water evaporation, condensation and precipitation, pressure and winds, and thermal differences and weather disturbances. Illustrated throughout with information diagrams and photos, this book presents a non-technical introduction to the complex themes and processes of the atmosphere.
