There is a growing recognition from academia, government, the private sectors, and the non-governmental sectors that integrated thinking and problem-solving across disciplinary boundaries is required to effectively address societal impacts issues in meteorology and hydrology. Within the weather and climate arena many early career physical and social scientists and engineers seek to learn about concepts, tools, questions, and policies related to more than one discipline but most academic departments, especially in meteorology and hydrology, are too narrow to allow much leeway for electives outside of their narrowly defined discipline. Weather and Society: Integrating Social Science provides comprehensive coverage of a new evolving problem-solving set of approaches to weather and climate issues that successfully integrates social science concepts and methodologies into weather and climate.
