(Issued Monday, April 2 for classes beginning Friday, April 6)

From The Earth System, Chapter 4:
"The Atmospheric Circulation System" (pp. 57-83)

(Note that although the items above all say "all", there are significant parts of this reading that we will not cover in class in detail, or at all, including details about the relationship among temperature, pressure, and volume; the Coriolis effect; details about the concept of saturation vapor pressure; monsoons; etc. We can afford the time to address only the bigger-picture concepts in this chapter.)
