"Meteorology for Scientists and Engineers, 3rd Edition" (MSE3) was written in 2011.  Updates were made in 2015 to half of the chapters, and the book was re-titled as "Practical Meteorology: An Algebra-based Survey of Atmospheric Science" (PrMet).  Some readers prefer the original 2011 edition, which is made available here.  Both books cover the same topics in the same order.   The online pdf files linked below are free to users.   This MSE3 book will not be revised - - for newer material, see the Practical Meteorology book.
