About the Author:

Donald MacGorman and W. David Rust are both at the National Severe Storms Laboratory.

Review:


"Lightning is among the nation's worst weather hazards, yet even today the processes that electrify clouds are not completely understood. Together, MacGorman and Rust have spent more than 50 years total in research on lightning and storm electricity at the NOAA National Severe Storms Laboratory, and they have been teaching a graduate course on these topics at the University of Oklahoma for more than a decade. This book represents their attempt to condense an enormous body of literature on the electrical nature of storms into a single volume textbook, something that has been sorely needed for some time. In many ways, this is the right book, by the right people, at the right place, at the right time. . . . The book is clearly the best compilation of material on storm electricity that exists today. It can be used either as a textbook or as a reference work by specialists and nonspecialists alike."--E. Philip Krider in the Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society
