As each Investigations Manual activity is self-contained AMS Climate Studies course materials are available to instructors in their entirety prior to the beginning of a term.
Instructors wanting to have their students study the most current climatological datasets may choose to supplement the Manual investigations with Current Climate Studies prepared weekly on the RealTime Climate Portal. View this year's schedule for the Current Climate Studies.
Orders for the Climate Studies, eInvestigations Manual and/or other course materials can be placed through your college bookstore. Go to the Order Class Materials page for details. Students can also place orders directly through the AMS Bookstore.
If you are a faculty member interested in using the Climate Studies textbook in a current or future course offering, you may request an examination copy of the Textbook and eInvestigations Manual.
