Discovering What's up and What's Coming DownBook - 2002
Whether there's a tropical heat wave or a chill in the air, whether there's rain, sleet, or snow, have some meteorological fun while learning about everything from hurricanes to sunny blue skies. How can you fly "above the weather?" What are the lowest and highest temperatures ever recorded on earth--and the solar system? How can you convert Celsius to Fahrenheit? What causes lightning and thunder? How do you read a weather map? Along with these cool facts, try some really great experiments: with plastic cups, sand, water, and a thermometer, check and see whether the land or sea changes temperature faster. Or, get blown away with a homemade anemometer that measures wind speed. Create clouds in a jar. Plus: amazing trivia-including the day it rained frogs in Kansas City.
