Just a few of the "weather" facts included:

Lightning is 5 times hotter then the surface of the sun.

Depending on their strength, winds can be known as a breeze, gale, storm, or hurricane.

The tiny droplets of water that make up fog are so small that it would take seven thousand million of them to make a single tablespoonful of water.

The intense heat from lightning causes the surrounding air to rapidly expand and create a sonic wave that you hear as thunder.

Thousands of years ago philosophers such as Aristotle believed that thunder was caused by the collision of clouds.

When double rainbows form, the second, bigger rainbow, will have its colors in reverse.

In 360 BC, the Greek philosopher Aristotle wrote Meteorologica, the first book on meteorology.

Rain gauges are use to measure the amount of rain over a certain period of time.

Dust devils look like tornadoes, but are simply well formed whirlwinds of dust.

Lightning strikes usually last around 1 or 2 microseconds.

Short bursts of wind moving at high speeds are known as gusts.

You can use pine cones to forecast the weather: The scales will close when rain is on the way.

"Overcast" is when the sky is completely covered by clouds.

The study of lightning is known as fulminology.

The winter of 1932 in the US was so cold that Niagara falls froze completely solid.

The speed of a typical raindrop is 17 miles per hour.

The system used to mark the temperature in degrees (ºC) was named after a Swedish scientist, Anders Celsius. He invented it in 1742.

Fog is a stratus type of cloud that appears very close to the ground.

The majority of tornadoes occur in a geographically unique area nicknamed ‘Tornado Alley’.

A tsunami is an ocean wave that is formed by an underwater earthquake or landslide, or volcanic eruption.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
