Abstract:

Each book in this series contains an up-to-date, comprehensive account of a key scientific topic covered in the middle-school grades. Each book is also enhanced with sidebars containing facts about the subject or historical information. Test files provide simple experiments so students can experience the methods used by scientists to test theories. Meteorology, the science of weather, is explained in this book for young readers. First, they are introduced to weather phenomena, such as clouds, winds, rain and snow, and why they happen, and at weather patterns, such as the seasons. Then, the author explores how weather affects us and how forecasts are made. Finally, it explains how human activities may be making changes in the world's weather.
