Gases, Pressure, and Wind: The Science of the Atmosphere (Weatherwise)
Paul Fleisher (Author)
48 pages

Booktalk: As Hurricane Irene bears down the Eastern United States, here is a book that explains how the ever-changing atmosphere determines weather around the globe.

Snippet: Air may seem to be weightless. But gases do have mass. (Mass is the amount of matter, or substance, in something.) The total weight of Earth’s atmosphere is about 5,600 trillion (5,6000,000,000,000,000) tons (5,080 trillion metric tons)!
