A spinoff volume derived entirely from the McGraw-Hill Encyclopedia of Science and Technology (6th edition, 1987) with articles arranged by chapter within sections-not alphabetically. This book is one of the titles in our new Science Reference Series, a series designed to serve the educational and professional needs of individuals who do not have access to the parent 20-volume set. Climate and the weather are of global interest not only scientifically but commercially as well since weather impacts air transportation, shipping, and agriculture in terms of real dollars. There are currently many global research programs involving cooperative international efforts providing renewed interest in the science of weather. This book spans the full range of the subject, including all types of weather systems and meteorological phenomena, and the technologies for study, forecasting and prediction (e.g., radar and satellites) in approximately 110 "articles".
