*** The Weather Experiment by Peter Moore


It’s hard not to automatically think about the swirling pictures of storm when we think of the weather, but of course there was a time when no conveniently placed satellites could help us decide whether to take an umbrella (or detour around a hurricane).  The Weather Experiment: The Pioneers Who Sought to See the Future shows how the combination of the application of the scientific method to weather predictions, better measurements, and better communications helped create the science of weather forecasting.  Full of epic stories and not dull at all.
