The Ocean of Air - Meteorology for Beginners

Read by LibriVox Volunteers

(3.8 stars; 11 reviews)

This is an immensely readable book explaining anything to do with air - the atmosphere, wind and clouds, and life. This 1896 explanation has since been overtaken by more specific scientific discoveries, but the general concepts certainly still hold true until today. Any beginner interested in meteorology will find this book a great place to start. - Summary by Carolin (9 hr 52 min)

(4 stars)

Even though this book was written many years ago, I learned a lot listening to it. It would be 5 stars if there was one narrator.
