Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Amateur meteorologists--as well as everybody else who is interested in understanding the dynamics of weather--will find what they're looking for in this meteorology primer and daily logbook. An expertly written text explains the fundamentals of meteorology to beginners and offers interesting pointers on weather prediction to more experienced weather watchers. It also lists the forecasting equipment that home meteorologists will need, including a barometer, thermometer, and a simple device for measuring wind speed and direction. Readers will find explanations of the different cloud types, information on what kinds of weather they indicate, tips on measuring precipitation, instruction on reading a weather map, and advice on predicting thunderstorms and other weather phenomena. A 104-page logbook section (52 two-page spreads) provides space for charting weather-related data for a full calendar year. Weather Tracker is printed in two colors and features more than 60 enlightening illustrations and diagrams. Its rubberized PCV cover with wraparound flap and a snap to keep it closed will protect the pages against the elements when weather watchers take the book outdoors.
