Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
What's the weather? Wake up to this ultimate reference, teeming with fascinating facts, amazing features, the latest science, and tons of close-up images of the wildest weather on the planet. Did you know that a bolt of lightning can crack through the air at up to 136,000 miles per hour and reach temperatures hotter than the surface of the sun? Or that if all the ice in the Antarctic melted, the oceans would rise by about 220 feet? Welcome to the amazing world of weather. From how weather happens to the most extreme weather in the world, it's all covered in this easy-to-use reference featuring all the major types of weather and what kinds of weather happen in particular places, from the desert to the tropics to the poles. The main content is highlighted with fun facts, Did You Know? details, and colorful photos and graphics. Thematic spreads cover topics such as climate change, weather survival stories, animal adaptations to weather, and much more. Fans of other National Geographic Kids Ultimate "pedias" in the same series--Dinopedia, Bugopedia, Reptileopedia, Oceanpedia, and Predatorpedia--will want to find a place for Ultimate Weatherpedia on their bookshelves.
