In many parts of the world the weather forms a daily topic of conversation, In others it hardly changes from one week to the next. However, human life is governed by the weather which affects much of our activity, from farming to fishing and from shopping to holiday-making. Introducing Meteorology has been written to provide a succinct overview of the science of the weather for students and for interested amateurs wanting a topical guide to this complex science. The initial chapters describe the development of the science, the atmosphere and the forces which govern the weather. The author then discusses weather influences at global and local scales before describing the science of weather forecasting. Copiously illustrated, this book is intended for those whose interest in meteorology has been stimulated, perhaps by media coverage of dramatic weather events, and who want to know more. Technical terms are kept to a minimum and are explained in a glossary.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'It is sometimes said, with some justification, that those who are specialists in a particular field often express themselves when speaking of their subject in terms that are impenetrable to those of us who are not fellow specialists. No such criticism could be levelled at Jon Shonk... I have no hesitation in recommending this book.' Weather (Royal Meteorological Society
'Introducing Meteorology is a most welcome addition to the bookshelves of students, interested amateurs, meteorology educators, and those who simply enjoy a readable, affordable book on the weather. Jon Shonk has created a marvelously succinct and up-to- date introduction to weather that serves a variety of audiences and purposes extremely well. I hope this is only the first of many excellent books from this young scientist.' BAMS (American Meteorological Society)
'Over the vears there has been quite a deluge of books on the weather but John Shonk's Introducing Meteorology, A Guide to Weather' is affordable, concise yet full of information. It is very readable and is generously illustrated with an excellent balance between pictures and diagrams, all in colour.' Weather Eye
