"From deciding the best day for a picnic, to forecasting farming conditions, to the devastating effects of hurricanes, weather impacts our lives on a daily basis. We check the weather forecast regularly, but most of us do not appreciate the complex interacting forces and large-scale movements of air that underlie weather. In this Very Short Introduction, Storm Dunlop explains what weather is, what causes it, and how we measure it. Analysing the basic features of the atmosphere, its major wind systems and ocean currents, he shows how these drive the weather experience." -- from cover.
