Abstract:
"Meteorology, once the simple study of atmospheric events such as storms, hurricanes, tornadoes and temperature changes, has grown in the 21st century. This science now includes such disciplines as atmospheric chemistry and physics, climatology and global warming. This program presents the principles of atmospheric dynamics. The Earth's atmosphere is a dynamic balance of gases and sunlight that allows for the possibility of life. The Earth's atmosphere has a unique composition, structure and life sustaining Bio/Geo/Chemical cycles in its lower reaches. This program also discusses how these atmospheric elements are being impacted by the unprecedented burning of fossil fuels"--Container cover insert.
