About this title

Synopsis:

A practical guide to observing, measuring and understanding weather.

Meteorology is a science that gets widespread exposure on television, radio and newspapers as well as being one of the most frequent topics of conversation. Best of all, it is a science that anyone can dabble in on a daily basis.

Guide to Weather is a handy guide to the many forces of nature at work in the Earth's atmosphere.

Written for all readers, this book explains how weather phenomena actually develop and how to predict them. The book also explores the validity of weather folklore, such as red sky at night, sailor's delight; red sky in the morning, sailor take warning, and many others.

Guide to Weather covers weather topics in the following nine chapters:

  • The atmosphere
  • Observing the weather
  • Mapping the weather
  • Global weather
  • Explaining the weather
  • Forecasting the weather
  • Hazardous weather
  • Holiday weather around the world
  • Environmental issues.

There is also a country-by-country climate guide -- just perfect for today's global traveler -- with concise assessments and graphs showing annual temperatures, precipitation, and sun times.

With more than 300 photographs, maps and artwork, Guide to Weather is the compact reference for travelers, meteorological hobbyists, students, farmers, and anyone who wants a better understanding of the weather.
