Come Rain or Shine: Understanding the Weather

University of Reading

Overview

The weather may seem like it has a mind of its own, but its many mood swings all come from the same source: the sun, and the energy Earth receives from it. From there, we can use instruments to predict and detect weather systems as they build. With this knowledge, not only can we adapt to the weather, but we can also understand how our actions impact the climate, and what we can do to minimize the damage we cause to the environment.

The University of Reading is a public, global university located in the UK. This course is led by Peter Iness, a Meteorology lecturer at the University of Reading, and Sylvia Knight, the Head of Education for the Royal Meteorological Society.

In Come Rain or Shine, Knight and Iness debunk the inner workings of the weather and how we can predict it, adapt to it, and prepare for the future.
