Discover! Weather Series - 3 Volumes

Volume 1: Weather Fundamentals

Get a view of the weather as a global system. See Earth’s atmosphere as air masses in motion that interact to produce our weather. Look at the water cycle, cloud formation, cloud types, and warm and cold fronts. Global, regional and local patterns and how they are influenced by geography.

Volume 2: Extreme Weather

What makes storms? Why do some storms become so dangerous? Get inside a thunder cell, a tornado and a hurricane. See where the jet stream fits into the picture. Learn where storms get and release their energy. The human and economic impacts of severe weather events.

Volume 3: Weather Forecasting and Climate

See how local weather observations, weather charts and satellite data come together to predict a great day at the beach. Build your own backyard weather station. Learn how remote sensing of the oceans and the atmosphere—coupled with historic weather data—allow us to look into the past in order to predict Earth’s future climate.
