The Nature Of Violent Storms

Every year hurricanes, tornadoes, and other violent storms result in great damage to property and the loss of many lives. Much of the destruction wrought by these storms is due to mans very limited knowledge of the forces that cause them, yet the science of meteorology is helping man live with these storms even if he cannot yet tame them. As it explains the physics of weather, this book covers a variety of weather distrubances ranging from small white clouds in fair skies to hurricanes. Furthermore, it delves into the theories of the formation of violent storms and describes the roles that heat, water, and air play in their development.
