Overview

From Raindrops to Volcanoes: Adventures with Sea Surface Meteorology by Duncan C. Blanchard

Where do raindrops come from? What happens when they hit the sea? What significant events occur where sea and air meet? Research scientist Duncan Blanchard — a Fellow of both the American Meteorological Society and the American Association for the Advancement of Science — examines these and many other questions in an effort to promote a better understanding of the atmospheric sciences. In the course of his investigation, he takes readers into the realms of meteorology, oceanography, physics, chemistry, and volcanology.
In this popular treatment, Dr. Blanchard probes an exciting array of topics, among them The Flight of the Raindrops; The Surface of the Sea; Expulsion from Flatland; Electricity from the Sea; Volcanoes, Sea Water, and Electricity; and A Volcano at the Surface of the Sea. Readers are invited to perform experiments described in the text — most of which can be carried out with a minimum of equipment.
Presented in layman's language and filled with photographs and illustrations that enhance understanding, this book is a fascinating look at the workings of nature.
