Summary and Info
In many parts of the world, the weather forms a daily topic of conversation. In other parts, the weather hardly changes from one week to the next. However, human life is governed by the weather, which affects much of our activity, from farming to fishing and from shopping to holiday-making. For students and interested amateurs wanting a topical guide to this complex area of study, Introducing Meteorology provides a succinct overview of the science of the weather. Copiously illustrated, the book describes the development of the science, weather observation, the atmosphere, and the forces which govern the weather. It then discusses weather influences at global and local scales before describing the science of weather forecasting. The book's technical terms are kept to a minimum and are explained in a glossary. *** "...excellent and enlightening resource, highly recommended for undergraduate and public library collections." - The Midwest book Review, Library Bookwatch, The Science Shelf, May 2013
