"Undoubtedly destined to become a classic. The treatment is sensitively pitched at a level for the non-meteorological specialist in a variety of disciplines in geography, agriculture, forestry, ecology, engineering and planning."
-"World Meteorological Organization Bulletin
"This well established climatology text explains the climates formed near the ground in terms of the cycling of energy and mass through systems . . . In this second edition, Professor Oke provides a fuller description of the atmospheric layers and gives more emphasis to the whole planetary boundary layer. There are nearly 50 new figures and new material on radiation geometry, the nature of thermals and convective cloud, leaf-air exchange, evapotranspiration from crops and forests, effects of topography on air flow, and the energy balance of cities."
-"Aquatic Sciences and Fisheries Abstracts

WHAT DID I GET IN THE MAIL ? THE FIRST EDITION . WTH. THIS IS VERY INSENSITIVE AND SIMPLY NOT A NICE THING TO DO. FALSE ADVERTISEMENT . IT IS A VERY GOOD BOOK, INDEED, BUT IT IS THE FIRST EDITION THAT YOU WILL RECEIVE. IF THIS DOES NOT INCONVENIENCE YOU AS IT DID ME (with the syllabus and class schedule basing everything on the SECOND edition ) THEN BY ALL MEANS, ORDER FROM THIS DECEIVING AND INCONSIDERATE MERCHANT.
