About this book

This is an authoritative and comprehensive dictionary of almost 2000 weather, forecasting, and climate terms, with illustrative examples of specific events and extremes. Readers can find out fascinating facts, such as where and when the world's largest hailstone fell or where the highest temperature was recorded, using the list of weather records, and check climate data for different weather types from around the world. A black and white illustration section shows the main cloud types, as well as satellite images of weather systems. Key terms from the related fields of oceanography, hydrology, and climatology are also covered. This is an essential reference source for meteorology and geography students, whether at school or university, and for amateur meteorologists.
