Thunderstruck by storm fronts? Perplexed about air pressure? Hazy on how weather works? If you've always been shaky on the science behind such phenomena, Air, Warter, and Weather is designed to help you develop a deep understanding of the basics so you can teach without fear. Best-selling author Bill Robertson acts as your friendly guide, bringing both wisdom and wit to the study of weather. He starts with basic properties of air and water. You'll learn about pressure, the Coriolis force, the Bernoulli Effect, density, and explanations of why hot air doesn't rise all by itself and why heating air doesn't necessarily cause it to expand. These concepts from a foundation for explanations of weather patterns, including the jet stream, storm fronts, and the formation of tornadoes and hurricanes.
