Synopsis

A-Z of Scientists in Weather and Climate by Don Rittner

Designed for high school through early college students, A to Z of Scientists in Weather and Climate is an ideal reference of notable male and female scientists in the field of meteorology and weather science. Focusing primarily on those historical figures whose contributions have defined the way modern meteorologists understand climate, weather, and the atmosphere, this volume of the Notable Scientists series provides an array of information about the lives and studies of significant scientists, across the globe, from ancient times to the 20th century. Containing more than 160 entries and approximately 50 black-and-white photographs, this volume emphasizes the selected scientists' contributions to the field as well as his or her effect on the scientists who have come later. The book has a general introduction that explains who was chosen for inclusion and why; a list of entries; the entries themselves; indexes by field of specialization, nationality, and subject area; a bibliography; and an index.
