Sky watchers guide to weather: En21-180/2006E-PDF

The Sky Watchers Guide to Weather is divided into seven main chapters. 1. First Steps explains how to set up the instruments in the Sky Watchers kit, and take readings with them. 2. What Makes Weather looks at the roles which sun, air pressure, air masses, and fronts play in the story of weather. 3. Weather Elements discusses variations in temperature and humidity, as well as different cloud formations and the types of precipitation they produce. 4. Severe Weather in Canada outlines what sets these storms apart from ordinary storms. 5. Weather and Canadians describes how weather affects almost every facet of daily life and why the climate may be changing. 6. Ultraviolet Radiation focuses on the UV Index - why it was created, what it means, and how to use it to protect yourself from over-exposure to the sun. 7. Putting it All Together explains how Sky Watchers can pull all this information together and, with the help of a few guidelines, develop their own forecasts. There are activities throughout the guide and experiments at the end, along with the glossary and lists of books and websites about weather for the weather buffs in the class." Accompanied by supplement: "Sky watchers guide to weather. Supplement One, Air quality" (22 p. : ill.)
