ño: Stormy Weather for People and Wildlife is now available as a Kindle book on Amazon. For readers age 10 and up.
Drought in Southeast Asia, brutal storms in Australia, and spring-like
temperatures in the northeastern United States--all of these seemingly
unrelated events are caused by El Niño. Disrupting weather all over the
globe every three to seven years, El Niño is second only to the change
of the seasons in its influence on the climate.
El Niño is the name
given to the unusual increase in ocean temperatures along the Peruvian
and Ecuadorian coasts that is part of a larger pattern of changes in
wind and weather throughout the Pacific region and beyond. With El Niño come violent storms and upsets in the global food chain that
dramatically affect both humans and wildlife.
With the use of
photographs, charts and maps, this updated edition of El Niño: Stormy Weather for People and Wildlife makes clear how this remarkable weather
pattern is formed, how scientists track it, what its effects are, and
why following its path is of such importance.
Originally published by Clarion Books as a hardback book in 1998, El Nino: Stormy Weather for People and Wildlife is an Accelerated Reader book. You can look for it in your library.
