Here are some general books relating to climatology that have a loose connection to the geosciences. Although themes such as paleoclimatic studies, global warming, meteorology, weather history and climate studies are mostly part of their own specific fields of study, it is helpful to know some of the sources that are available at the Carothers Library for further study concerning earth's environment, which can have scientific roots within the geological sciences.
