About this book

This is a fully revised edition of this practical guide to observing, measuring and understanding the weather. The new edition has been updated in the aftermath of the tsunami of December 2004 and the New Orleans floods of 2005, both in text and illustrations.

Philip's "Guide to the Weather" is aimed at all those who enjoy the outdoors, from sailors to walkers, climbers and birdwatchers. This book is also useful as an aid to planning holidays throughout the world, with handy country-by-country climate guides and statistics, along with in-depth explanations of global weather patterns. Guidance on measuring and recording the weather, and handy tips on how to interpret weather signs are also included. In addition, this book gives a detailed, factual and balanced account of the implications of environmental issues currently in the headlines, such as global warming and the depletion of the ozone layer, as well as the effects of El Nino and other phenomena on world weather patterns. Packed full of colour photographs and satellite images, the text is also illustrated with 3040 specially commissioned artworks, as well as numerous maps, charts and graphs.
