Extreme Weather takes a hands-on approach to one of the most central topics in earth science, and shows readers just how exciting - and dangerous - life on planet Earth can be. From the awesome power of the Sun as the driver of the Earth's atmosphere, to the eye of a developing storm, and how weather plays a role in tough and difficult jobs like an air-sea rescue mission and life at a polar research station.
