In the 1990s Richard B. Alley and his colleagues made headlines with the discovery that the last ice age came to an abrupt end over a period of only three years. In The Two-Mile Time Machine, Alley tells the fascinating history of global climate changes as revealed by reading the annual rings of ice from cores drilled in Greenland. He explains that humans have experienced an unusually temperate climate compared to the wild fluctuations that characterized most of prehistory. He warns that our comfortable environment could come to an end in a matter of years and tells us what we need to know in order to understand and perhaps overcome climate changes in the future. In a new preface, the author weighs in on whether our understanding of global climate change has altered in the years since the book was first published, what the latest research tells us, and what he is working on next.

Written for the undergraduate, introductory course, the updated Fourth Edition engages students with real-world examples and a captivating narrative. It highlights how we observe the atmosphere and then uses those discoveries to explain atmospheric phenomena. The text begins with discussions on primary atmospheric variables involved in the formation of weather: pressure, temperature, moisture, clouds, and precipitation, and include practical information on weather maps and weather observation. It then progresses to discuss weather and climate topics such as the interaction between atmosphere amd ocean, severe/extreme weather, weather forecasting, and climate change.The updated Fourth Edition includes new content on recent meteorological topics, including geomagnetic storms, normal temperatures, extreme rainfall, flooding, global-scale winds, tornado outbreaks and debris, the air pollution in China, the hole in the ozone layer, ocean acidification, and many more engaging topics. New sections on Superstorm Sandy and Cyclone Forecasting, the tornados of 2011, and conceptual models of frontal systems have been added making the Fourth Edition of Meteorology: Understanding the Atmosphere the most up-to-date and invaluable resource available.An Instructor's Media CD containing PowerPoint Lecture Outlines and a PowerPoint Image Bank is available to adopting institutions. An Instructor's Manual and Test Bank are also available for download.

Geoscience data and collections (such as, rock and sediment cores, geophysical data, engineering records, and fossils) are necessary for industries to discover and develop domestic natural resources to fulfill the nation’s energy and mineral requirements and to improve the prediction of immediate and long term hazards, such as land slides, volcanic eruptions and global climate change. While the nation has assembled a wealth of geoscience data and collections, their utility remains incompletely tapped. Many could act as invaluable resources in the future but immediate action is needed if they are to remain available. Housing of and access to geoscience data and collections have become critical issues for industry, federal and state agencies, museums, and universities. Many resources are in imminent danger of being lost through mismanagement, neglect, or disposal. A striking 46 percent of the state geological surveys polled by the committee reported that there is no space available or they have refused to accept new material. In order to address these challenges, Geoscience Data and Collections offers a comprehensive strategy for managing geoscience data and collections in the United States.
