We are the authors of a set of five books on Measuring the Weather. We were pleased when in 2008 we had the opportunity to update them for a new edition. There are five books in the set and they can be found in many libraries in the UK, North America and Australia. They are aimed at children aged 8-12 years of age but are very readable for adults. They are full of colourful pictures and diagrams, interesting facts, things to do and references.
Many thanks to Richard Sanders for his patience in training us in the use of Dreamweaver and for helping set up this site.
It is always advisable to complete weather projects under responsible adult supervision. Most science work should not be done by children on their own. Weather apparatus should be handled gently as it can be expensive. Take care as well because, should anything break, pieces can be sharp.
Please be conscious of any safety issues regarding weather activities. Always refer to any relevant Health and Safety policy documents. It is advisable to avoid any instruments which contain mercury. Encourage weather observers to avoid looking directly at the sun when looking at the sky, especially with optical instruments such as binoculars and cameras. Filters are generally not powerful enough to guarantee safe viewing of the sun.
