A fascinating, full-colour introduction to the earth science happening over our heads, packed with STEM experiments and science-minded research projects that invite kids ages 12 to 15 to explore the wonderful world of meteorology through real-world connections! Take a look out your window. What's the weather like today? Has it changed much from morning to afternoon? What is the difference between weather and climate? In The Science of Weather and Climate: Rain, Sleet, and the Rising Tide, middle schoolers learn the science behind why it snows, how wind is formed, what makes one region hot and dry and another region cold and damp, plus lots more! By studying the atmospheric sciences of meteorology and climatology, kids learn to connect the weather they experience on a daily basis in their town with the changing conditions across the entire planet. * The activity in our atmosphere plays a critical role in our lives and in the health of our planet.
