Thanks to a mounting interest in climate change and severe weather phenomena, meteorology courses are increasingly popular among today's students, particularly in general education versions of the course, where rapid advances in visualisation tools and technologies like GIS have greatly expanded the teacher's toolkit.

The Atmosphere: An Introduction to Meteorology remains the standard introduction in its field, reinforcing basic concepts with everyday, easy-to-grasp examples. This revision retains the hallmarks professors have come to expect from Tarbuck and Lutgens: a friendly, largely non-technical narrative, timely coverage of recent atmospheric events and carefully crafted artwork by leading science illustrator Dennis Tasa. The 12th edition maintains a student-friendly approach while evolving to address various course challenges and trends. Current digital visualisation and assessment tools are now available on MyMeteorologyLab, a new resource that both encourages student self-study and enables instructors to manage their courses online, with customisable assessments for students.

Each chapter in this revision is organised by a new active learning path to help guide and engage non-science majors. A greater focus on popular and increasingly important 'Severe and Hazardous Weather' applications, new critical visual analysis 'Eye on the Atmosphere' features, as well as new discussions of the real-world career opportunities of meteorology with 'Professional Profile' essays, make the science relevant and exciting.
