Riassunto: Everything you ever wanted to know about Australia's extraordinarily diverse weather, from cyclones in the sweltering tropics to the snow of the alpine regions From the most mundane daily decisions to matters of life and death, the weather affects everyone's lives intimately—even Australians. Drawing on the latest scientific research, The Complete Book of Australian Weather explains climate zones and weather patterns across the continent. Australia has some of the most extreme weather patterns of any country in the world. We discover the science behind the devastating bushfires and cyclones, the willy willies and the southerly buster, and the cyclical droughts caused by the El Nino phenomenon. We explore why Australia is particularly vulnerable to climate change, and how they can harness the forces of nature for green energy. Lavishly illustrated throughout with color photographs and diagrams, The Complete Book of Australian Weather is a fascinating and comprehensive guide for keen weather watchers, families, and students.
