Bringing together Weather Studies: Introduction to Atmospheric Science 5th Ed and the Weather Studies Investigations Manual, the Weather Studies Student Package is a complete educational set available at a discounted price.
The Weather Studies Student Package comprises a) Weather Studies: Introduction to Atmospheric Science. This full-color, hardcover textbook, authored by Joseph M. Moran, includes 15 chapters exploring the atmosphere from an Earth system perspective. From weather prediction and long range forecasting for Atlantic hurricanes, to El Niño and La Niña and global climate change, this text explores how energy from the Sun creates the weather of our daily lives. b) Weather Studies Investigations Manual. Updated annually to remain current with advances in the atmospheric sciences and weather events (such as significant tornadoes and hurricanes), the investigation manual is designed to introduce tools for exploring, analyzing, and interpreting the workings of the Earth-atmosphere system. The Manual contains 30 investigations that build on previous learning experiences to form a comprehensive exploration of Earth's atmosphere. The Manual's activities are designed for a 12 or 15 week-semester. Designed to be used together, the Textbook and Investigations Manual offer a thorough introduction to weather and climate.
AMS Education Program Earth science courses and the associated learning materials were developed by an experienced team of AMS scientists and science educators to bring high quality and scientifically robust educational resources to university and college classrooms nationwide. Components of the courses are delivered online, allowing students to track real-time weather, ocean and climate events as they occur. These resources were developed to support and sustain the AMS K-13 professional development programs for U.S. educators, and promote AMS disciplines to the general public.
