An Introduction to Atmospheric Science Lab Manual
Author(s): Texas Tech Atmospheric Science Group
An Introduction to Atmospheric Science: Lab Manual was written for the purpose of helping students achieve a basic knowledge and understanding of our atmosphere. The manual was designed to complement and reinforce a more thorough and comprehensive introductory atmospheric science course and textbook.
Throughout the lab manual important terms are highlighted in bold. A glossary is provided for easy reference. Questions are interspersed throughout each of the eight labs. At the end of each lab, there is an answer sheet that also contains all of the questions. This is so the student can tear out the answer sheet and any accompanying maps for easy grading, and keep the background material and explanations for studying and future reference.
