‘Clear, succinct and engaging answers to every question you could ask about the weather.’ Gavin Pretor-Pinney, author of The Cloudspotter’s Guide Why doesn’t rain fall all at once? Can technology change the track of a hurricane? What’s the weather like on other planets? Meteorologists Simon King and Clare Nasir reveal the captivating ways the weather works, from exploring incredible weather phenomenon (how are rainbows formed?), expertly breaking down our knowledge of the elements (could we harness the power of lightning?) to explaining the significance of weather in history (has the weather ever started a war?) and discussing the future of weather (could climate modification save the planet?). In What Does Rain Smell Like? Simon and Clare uncover the thrilling science behind a subject that affects us all. They unearth and analyse all aspects of the weather and how it changes our lives through answering our most curious questions about the world around us.
