Exploring many aspects of weather, A Chronology of Weather, Revised Edition has been updated to include the most recent research and events in the field. 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 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 ca. 3200 BCE to the present; and a chronology of discoveries listing important developments in the understanding of weather. Biographies of noted weather scientists and advances in forecasting are also included. Easy-to-perform experiments (requiring no special equipment) that explore various aspects of weather and weather science are provided, along with information on weather classification and measurement scales, including the Beaufort Scale of Wind Strength, the Saffir/Simpson Hurricane Scale, and the Fujita Tornado Intensity Scale. A glossary of terms and concepts used throughout the book and set ensures students will find all the Dangerous Weather volumes accessible and easy to understand.
