By means of more than 1,000 maps, this atlas shows the regional contrasts of specific aspects of the climate—temperature, precipitation, sunshine, forests, growing seasons and so on—in such a way that they can be grasped readily by anyone interested in the subject. The maps have been drawn with the aid of data from the U.S. Weather Bureau and other government agencies, and they include much material not hitherto published.
