Meteorology Manual follows a similar concept to the well-received Astronomy Manual, aiming to provide an easy-to-read introduction for newcomers to the subject, while providing a sufficient level of detail to prove useful to those who also have a basic understanding of the subject. This extensively illustrated book will follow the familiar Haynes Manual style, with down-to-earth text, supported by colour diagrams and photographs, including, where appropriate, step-by-step sequences of cloud and weather system formations. There is increasing interest in learning about how weather systems are formed, what causes variations in the weather, and how to study and predict the movement of weather systems to enable weather forecasting, all which can be found in this book.

In many parts of the world, the weather forms a daily topic of conversation. In other parts, the weather 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. For students and interested amateurs wanting a topical guide to this complex area of study, Introducing Meteorology provides a succinct overview of the science of the weather. Copiously illustrated, the book describes the development of the science, weather observation, the atmosphere, and the forces which govern the weather. It then discusses weather influences at global and local scales before describing the science of weather forecasting. The book's technical terms are kept to a minimum and are explained in a glossary. *** ..".excellent and enlightening resource, highly recommended for undergraduate and public library collections." - The Midwest book Review, Library Bookwatch, The Science Shelf, May 2013 *** "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." - American Meteorological Society, November 2013 [Subject: Meteorology, Earth Science, Atmospheric Science, Natural Science]
