About this title


Everyone feels the effect of the weather but why, for example, was July 2009 such a cool and wet month? Most of us just say ''it's the British weather''. However, there was a reason, the position of the Jet Stream.


Whilst some of the topics covered could be ''heavy going'' the book is written in a ''friendly, conversational'' style and succeeds in keeping the reader's attention. So don't be put off, the subjects like the Coriolis Effect and Air Pressure they are tackled here in an easy to understand manner with many diagrams, everyday examples and the occasional humour.


TV weather forecasts usually include ''Atlantic Charts'' - but what are they and what do they mean? Here you are taken through, step by step, the important aspects. And occasionally the forecasts also show satellite images - what are they and what do they mean? Again these are explained in plain English.


About the Author:

Gerhard (Ged) Dunkel graduated in mathematics from U.M.I.S.T. in 1970 and spent most of his working life in IT and lecturing in computing, statistics and maths. His IT skills took him to Namibia for 7 years and Kuwait for 5 years. He now lives in Nottingham with his wife and two dogs.


Ged has always had an interest in the physical sciences and recently, he successfully completed an OU course on the Weather, ''just for fun'' and it was this that triggered his interest in the Jet Stream.


His hobbies include astronomy, photography, the weather, travel, cryptic crosswords, playing bridge and current affairs (especially climate change).
