Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This handbook is a definite read for anyone who spends time fishing, hunting, or anything that depends on the weather. It's also great for anyone who has ever had to come up with an answer to "why is the sky blue, dad?" —Big Game Fishing Journal

"clear and well-illustrated guide."—Kliatt

KLIATT
This clear and well-illustrated guide to identifying what can be seen in the sky covers cloud classification, cloud formation, optical phenomena such as rainbows, color in the sky, visibility (mist/ fog/sea smoke), precipitation, winds, severe weather (oddly, hurricanes are included here only briefly, under tornados, and not cited in the index), and weather in general. The type is on the small side, and the vocabulary is more suitable for high school students than middle schoolers, but the color photos and diagrams help make concepts easily understood. Useful as a field guide as well as for research by meteorology students. Includes a table to help predict weather from cloud types, and a glossary. The aptly named author is a Fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society and the Royal Meteorological Society. KLIATT Codes: SA—Recommended for senior high school students, advanced students, and adults. 2002, Globe Pequot, The Lyons Press, 192p. illus. maps. index.,
