This Open Educational Resource textbook has been adapted from Roland Stull’s OER textbook entitled “Practical Meteorology: An Algebra-based Survey of Atmospheric Science.” It has been simplified and the content was reduced to meet the needs of the ATMO 200 course at the University of Hawai‘i.

Chapters and section structures were adapted from the above existing OER textbook. Without this foundational text, a lot more work would have been required to complete this project. A huge thank you to Roland Stull.
