And now for the Weather

by Pauline Clayton
If you are concerned about Climate Change or spectacular weather events this book is for you. Despite the look of a book printed on the cheap this is a comprehensive coverage of the mundane, the unusual and the controversial. Maps, storms, drought and El Nino are explained.The contribution of significant weathermen is discussed. The impact of the sun and moon on our atmosphere is thoughtful. The "what have we learnt" response to each of the BIG weather events is particularly powerful. We are now in a position to add our own coverage of Superstorm Sally's impact on the Pacific coast of the USA.
A great read for Geographers and all affected by the weather.
