Climate - Present, Past and Future - Volume 1 - Fundamentals and Climate Now

£29.99

Product description

This book is of a set of two volumes, unfortunately there is just the first volume for sale. Volume one is divided into two sections. Part one deals with the fundamentals, illustrating by theory and examples how climate is generated and continually undergoes variations of greater or lesser magnitude. Through many variations the constant working of the same physical laws is seen.
Part two provides global data in maps and tables on present-day climates and recent changes of climate, including those brought about (so far rather locally) by urban growth.
It is a hardback book with a dust jacket that shows signs of aging and is also price-clipped and there is a booksellers sticker near where the price used to be. The dust jacket has performed its duty well in protecting the book. It was written by H.H. Lamb and published by Methuen & Co. The dust jacket is in very good condition and the book is in as new condition. It is a first edition.
