Elsevier Launches New Book Series in Weather and Climate Sciences

By: , Posted on: June 12, 2020

We are excited to announce that Elsevier is launching a new book series titled “Developments in Weather and Climate Science.” The series will publish in association with the prestigious Royal Meteorological Society (RMetS), and will cut across traditional subject boundaries, bringing together all the elements that are important to educating students in upper-level study programs; professional meteorologists, climate scientists, and earth system scientists.

As a multidisciplinary field, industry leaders in meteorology must meet the high demands to provide up-to-date insights on areas pertaining to physics, mathematics, chemistry, and computer sciences. This new series is set to be published in Spring 2021 and will deliver topics ranging from atmospheric dynamics to environmental science to weather forecasting. The series will cover the principles of atmospheric, oceanic, and climatic science and include the study of recent developments in the field.

“Celebrating our 170th anniversary this year, the Royal Meteorological Society works to strengthen the science and raise awareness of the importance of weather and climate, support meteorological professionals and inspire enthusiasts. We are excited to be launching our new academic books series with Elsevier, which will be a comprehensive series of high-level textbooks and professional reference books, covering all aspects of meteorology and related sciences. We feel confident that Elsevier’s experience publishing books in this area, as well as their reputation and international reach, will provide the Society with the support it needs to grow an influential and global book programme,” said Alison Brown, Head of Publishing and Scientific Engagement, Royal Meteorological Society.

Paul Williams, Professor of Atmospheric Science at the University of Reading, is the Series Editor: “I am delighted to be editing this new book series in weather and climate science.  It benefits from the prestige of the Royal Meteorological Society, which I have been a Fellow of since 2008.  That, coupled with Elsevier’s global reach in the books market, promises to deliver a world-leading reference series on this vital topic.  Having published two books of my own, I have first-hand experience of what is involved, and I am looking forward to guiding authors through the process.  I plan to shape the series by identifying critical gaps in the existing literature and soliciting book proposals from leading experts in the field.”
