Author: Kristine Harper

It wasn't until the mid-19th century that the science of meteorology was recognized as a bona fide science. Transitioning from a barely reputable weather-guessing art to a computer-driven science through the years, meteorology addresses some of the world's most important issues of the 20th century. Some of the factors that have affected the study and practice of meteorology include the improvement of old instruments and the development of new ones, the creation of research and educational institutes for gathering data, exchanging ideas, educating young scientists about the atmosphere, and the rise of the aviation industry. Featuring the most up-to-date information on this topic, Weather and Climate: Decade by Decade traces the fascinating and often frustrating transformation of the study of weather phenomena and climatic conditions into the scientific disciplines of meteorology and


Cadillac Desert: The American West and Its Disappearing Water

Cadillac Desert: The American West and Its Disappearing Water Lowest new price: $417.49
Lowest used price: $143.17
List price: $417.49
Author: Marc Reisner

This is a history of the American West which recounts one of America's most impressive achievements - the creation of an Eden out of inhospitable desert. "Cadillac Desert" recounts this dramatic saga: from the earliest settlers lured by promises of paradise, to Jon Wesley Powell's advocacy of co-operative irrigation projects; from the ruthless tactics employed by Los Angeles to raid watersheds hundreds of miles away to sustain its phenomenal growth, to the federal government's entry into the water business. Reisner offers a bleak portrait of the future the West faces: over the next fifty years, millions of acres of America's most productive farmland will be abandoned due to the exhaustion of groundwater reserves. Reservoirs will silt up and soil and irrigated water is being contaminated by slat - the downfall of nearly every previous desert civilization.
