From the cover: Our life is intricately linked to the weather it is our friend and our enemy in equal measure-the weather is at the heart of our existence.
Perhaps because we cant always predict it, and certainly cant control it, our fascination with the weather never seems to wane. The Weather takes the reader on a thrilling voyage to the heart of this phenomenon that, even in an age of air conditioning and artificial environments, is still central to the everyday life of the planet. From hurricanes to sandstorms, monsoons to avalanches, solar storms to the jet stream, this book showcases and explains the most fascinating, dangerous and dynamic forces of the weather, including:
- weather pioneers and their discoveries
- spectacular weather events from around the world
- unseen weather phenomenon recreated with stunning computer graphics
- the science of meteorology and sky watching
- over 220 colour photographs that witness the forces of weather.
