Heat and Droughtby Lionel Bender
How important water is to many countries, particularly in the developing parts of the world, is a key to this book. And the book also illustrates how much of a hardship drought can be to the survival of people, animals, and crops. Terms introduced and explained include rain shadow, the water cycle, desertification, and the Greenhouse Effect, among many fascinating concepts. How people adapt to heat and how weather forecasting takes advantage of modern technology are also shown.
