Each book looks at what causes natural disasters to happen, how people are affected by them, and the work of the emergency services and aid organizations. The books introduce measuring equipment, how it is used and who collects it. They look at how professionals use weather data to predict local and national weather, and climate change, as well as the use of ICT in measuring weather. The relationship between particular weather conditions and wider weather patterns is examined, using examples from around the world. Includes project ideas.show more
