About the Authors
  • First published in 1919 as part of the Cambridge Nature Study Series, and originally intended for schoolchildren, this book introduces some of the basic concepts of meteorology. The text is illustrated with photographs and illustrations of weather systems and necessary meteorological equipment, and Chapman suggests exercises and topics for discussion in class. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in the history of education.
