The primary focus of this book is on Australian climates but the rest of the hemisphere is not ignored. The basic physics, chemistry and biology of the atmosphere are universal, and they are so treated in the book, even if weather maps differ so much between the hemispheres because of the reversal of the Coriolis effect. The book goes from the basic universal science to the impact of climate on the human economy and health. The text is reinforced by quantitative problems and a comprehensive bibliography. 354 pages.
