Product Description

Do you need to take an umbrella today? Will the price of bananas go up this week? Will the cyclone reach our town? From the most mundane daily decisions to matters of life and death, the weather affects our lives intimately. Drawing on the latest scientific research, The Complete Book of Australian Weathe explains climate zones and weather patterns across the continent.

Australia has some of the most extreme weather patterns of any country in the world. We discover the science behind the devastating bushfires and cyclones, the willy willies and the southerly buster, and the cyclical droughts caused by the El Nino phenomenon. We explore why Australia is particularly vulnerable to climate change, and how we can harness the forces of nature for green energy.

Lavishly illustrated throughout with colour photographs and diagrams, The Complete Book of Australian Weather is a fascinating and comprehensive guide for keen weather watchers, families and students.

Richard Whitaker is one of Australia's leading meteorologists. A former senior forecaster for the Sydney region at the Bureau of Meteorology, he now runs a meteorological consultancy business and is senior meteorologist for The Weather Channel. He is the author of Australia's Natural Disasters, Understanding Climate Change and other books.
