CLOUD BOOK, THE: How to Understand the Skies

Richard Hamblyn


Sold Out

This attractive and entertaining guide to the clouds, helps readers to identify every cloud type and related phenomena, and understand its implications for the weather. Unlike other books about clouds and weather, which can be very scientific and hard to understand, The Cloud Book follows a logical progression from low clouds to the high stratus clouds, and on to special clouds. The book also features a detailed introduction on the history of cloud classification–how it came about, the challenge involved with naming transitional forms in nature and how it was overcome. Packed with stunning images from the Met Offices archive combined with a lively and informative text, this is the definitive guide to the clouds and the skies. H01 E02
