This is probably the most useful book in my library. This is not a book of people's theories about the climate, but an organized presentation of actual observations of the climate itself. The book is easy to read and well written. It is written more like a journal article than a textbook with tons of figures based on data, valuable tables, and references to the scientific literature. The book focuses on what is observed: the mean states of the atmosphere, ocean, and cryosphere and on what can be calculated from observations: budgets of angular momentum, water, and energy. The book discusses the relevant physical processes of radiation and surface/atmosphere exchange. You need this book if you are a working scientist with questions like: What is the observed energy balance? How is water stored in various reservoirs in the climate system and what are the rates of exchange? How much momentum is transported by stationary versus transient eddies? How is temperature or the circulation distributed horizontally and vertically in the atmosphere and ocean, and how does it vary seasonally? If you are interested in climate models, cloud physics, climate change, or paleoclimatology, then this is not the right book for you.
