Review of Dr. Fred's Weather Watch: Create and Run Your Own Weather Station

From Science News, November 25, 2000, inside front cover

by Fred Bortz, with J. Marshall Shepherd

When Shepherd was about 12 years old, his interest in weather phenomena was piqued. He constructed a weather station that ultimately launched him into a career in meteorology. Shepherd, with the help of Bortz, guides today's students along this path by illustrating how to build the components of a weather station--including a barometer, wind vane, anemometer, and a hygrometer. The two scientists elucidate the fundamental concepts of meteorology to help children use these tools to predict weather phenomena.

Recommended for children 10-14.

McGraw, 2000, 98 p., b&w illus., paperback
