About the Book

This updated and revised volume in the Dangerous Weather series explores many aspects of weather as well as the science of weather. Organized and written in an easy-to-follow style, author Michael Allaby answers the most important questions students and non-specialists have about weather and he provides a general overview of the current information that shapes the way weather is understood and studied. Features include discussion of how the climates of the world have changed over the centuries; a 5,000-year chronology of dangerous weather, from c. 3,200 BCE to the present; a chronology of discoveries listing important developments in the understanding of weather, biographies of noted weather scientists, and advances in forecasting from c. 340 BCE to the present; easy-to-perform experiments (which require no special equipment) that explore various aspects of weather and weather science; weather classification and measurement scales, including the Beaufort Scale of Wind Strength, Saffir/Simpson Hurricane Scale, and the Fujita Tornado Intensity Scale; and a glossary of terms and concepts used throughout the book and series.
