Singer's Lock: The Revolution in the Understanding of Weather
This book is a stunning breakthrough in the understanding of weather which takes the field of meteorology out of the "dark ages" into the "main stream" of 20th century science. Nevertheless, it is written at a level that can be understood by most high school science students, since the explanations are based on old, well-established scientific principles.
A common surface weather map for an entire hemisphere is analyzed for a fixed moment in time, in such a manner, as to show in stark simplicity the (lows) and their associated centers of fair weather (highs). One hundred and ninety charts are drawn for a single instant of time in order to (1) lead the reader in easy stages through the various ramifications on the weather map and (2) to also present overwhelming proof of the procedures that are used. This book also gives a simplified explanation of why these strange configurations are formed and also indicates how they can be discovered on any weather map--past, present or future.
