Book Description

27 Aug 2010

Understand the Weather is a comprehensive and practical guide to the workings of the atmosphere. It will ensure that you not only understand what causes changes in the weather on a local, national and global scale but that you can also fully interpret weather broadcasts and are able to make your own predictions. Packed full of case studies, this book will explain both the weather we experience daily (winds, cold fronts, rain and shine) and the extreme weather that makes the headlines all too often (El Nino, Hurricane Katrina, floods). It will also focus on climate change and its effects - how will our weather be different in the future? Whether your job or leisure pursuits rely on the weather, or you just want to understand more about it, this book is ideal.

5.0 out of 5 stars Understanding weather 27 Mar 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Compact book, succinct and well written with useful pictures. I bought this to give me a light grounding before embarking on a short Open Univ course on weather and it gave the feel for the subject and introduced me to useful terminology

5.0 out of 5 stars Very interesting and informative book. 24 Feb 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Am doing an Open University degree and on looking at the list of courses wanted to do nearly all of them including one about the weather. To save time and money researched books on the subject and was recommended this one. It is simple to follow and gives loads of information for those just wanting to learn the basics. Highly recommend.
