In planning for a fourth edition of our comprehensive climatology text for the upper-level undergraduate or introductory-level graduate course, we conducted a revision survey with instructors who are currently or have very recently used the text in their course and instructors who have not adopted the current Third Edition.
Specifically, instructors had this to say about the text’s depth of coverage and student-readability:
“…it is one of the most comprehensive treatments of the science of climatology that I have encountered…This is a solid textbook and is worthy of use in climatology courses.”
– Timothy J. Wallace, Mississippi State University
“I do find that the inclusion of statistical and mathematical equations does make this textbook stand out from many others I have reviewed…I feel the main strength is the depth covered within each chapter. I have reviewed at least five climatology textbooks, and this one has the most scientific explanations and examples…I find this to be my favorite textbook at discussing the physical processes and details of Earth’s climate system…
I sincerely feel this is one of the finest and most comprehensive climatology textbooks out there.”
– Dr. Stephen Tsikalas, Jacksonville State University
“The biggest strength is the overall accessibility of the material for undergraduate students. Generally, the authors do a great job of explaining fairly complex principles without watering it down.”
– Dr. Tianna Bogart, Frostburg State University
“As of now it is the best text on the market for my course. I feel like it does a great job covering the basic science behind what causes differences in climate geographically. I also like that the text covers both natural and anthropogenic climate variability.”
– Dr. Kimberly DeBiasse, University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee
