Science in Focus is a broad based series that gives a clear introduction to curriculum topics and is an easy reference tool for research. The clear, well-written text is generously illustrated with large colour photographs and diagrams. Fact and History boxes extend the information, and evidence boxes suggest practical investigations. Weather examines the impact of weather on our everyday lives. From global climate change and its effects to tropical storms and tornadoes, this title looks at weather systems from around the world.
