School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 5-7-These excellent titles deliver succinct, carefully organized basic information. In Forecasting, Stein presents current long-range weather predictions for large sections of the U.S. because of global warming. He explains the role of supercomputers in deriving forecasts, the complexities involved, the challenges to accuracy, and the uses of climate models. In Storms, the author describes how weather observers track and make predictions. He suggests that, with the exception of hurricanes, global warming may or may not intensify storms. Clear, concise descriptions of hurricanes, tornadoes, severe thunderstorms, lightning, winter storms, and floods include basic safety guidelines. The captioned color photographs are appropriate to the texts. Stein's insightful conclusions are followed by well-conceived glossaries and listings of good sources of more information, such as the American Meteorological Society and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.-Nancy Call, Santa Cruz Public Libraries, Aptos, CA Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
