In this two-volume reference appropriate for high school or above, Allaby (author or editor of about 40 books on science, natural history, and environmental topics) presents 3,000-plus cross-referenced entries (varying in length from brief definitions of a few words to short essays) that describe processes that produce weather, the circulation of the atmosphere that produces the world's climates, classification of climates, scientific concepts used by climatologists and meteorologists, the history of ideas underlying the atmospheric sciences, biographic accounts, and particular weather events. Each entry contains cross references, definitions, and sources for further study. About 300 b&w photographs, maps, and charts depicting various weather and climate conditions support the text. Appendices list historical examples of disasters caused by bad weather, milestones in the development of the atmospheric sciences, and the geological time scale. Annotation c.
