About this book

Introduction

In this book, Robert Fleagle describes the transformations occurring in the atmospheric sciences in the span of his professional career. The author observes a shift from the science’s primitive origins in weather forecasting to a focus on numerical modeling of environmental change. The book presents the author’s observations of the role science of the atmosphere has progressively played in climate change, as well as social and political policy.
