: We can t control the weather, but the weather surely controls us. What we do, where we go, what we wear, and even what we eat depend to some extent on the weather. There s no doubt about it: weather plays a big role in our lives. But what exactly is weather, and what causes it? Why is it sunny one day and cloudy the next? What are hail and fog? A Project Guide to Wind, Weather, and the Atmosphere explains how events that occur miles above Earth s surface produce different types of weather. Simple experiments give a hands on approach to studying sunlight, air temperature, and atmospheric pressure. Also included are directions for making meteorological instruments, including a precipitation gauge and barometer. There may be no way to control the weather, but you can find out how to predict weather events and how to prepare for them.
