    A new edition of Climatology by Robert V. Rohli and Anthony J. Vega will publish June 1, 2017.  Praised for its detail and accuracy, Climatology continues to lead as the most comprehensive presentation of our dynamic climate system. The Fourth Edition features a completely revised, full-color art program that enhances clarity and gradation of all maps, climographs, and images to help readers better understand the diversity of climate within varying climate types.

    The text appeals to all students, as it covers the basics of atmospheric science in the early chapters and provides the breadth and depth of topics to challenge the more experienced reader. Climatology, Fourth Edition aims to improve students’ communication skills, encourage critical-thinking, and invoke a sense of social responsibility, making it the clear choice in this rapidly developing science.

    Review of Climatology, Third Edition: "it is the best text on the market for my course."

    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.”
