The Science of Hurricanes
When the intense winds of a hurricane start to blow, they sound like a freight train coming. Depending where in the world this huge storm hits, it might be called a cyclone or a typhoon. But location doesnít make the hurricane-level wind and rain any less devastating. Readers will learn all about the causes of hurricanes, and their disastrous effects. Vivid photographs will amplify accessible science content as well as examples of some of the worst hurricanes in recent history. With detailed timelines from 2005ís Hurricane Katrina and several other storms, readers will be introduced to incredible science while encouraged to compound their knowledge and compassion about the world around them.
