Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Meteorology Manual will follow a similar concept to the well-received Astronomy Manual, aiming to provide an easy-to-read introduction for newcomers to the subject, while providing a sufficient level of detail to prove useful to those who also have a basic understanding of the subject. This extensively illustrated book will follow the familiar Haynes Manual style, with down-to-earth text, supported by colour diagrams and photographs, including where appropriate step-by-step sequences of cloud and weather system formation, etc. There is increasing interest in learning about how weather systems are formed, what causes variations in the weather, and how to study and predict the movement of weather systems to enable weather forecasting, all which can be found in this book.
