5.0 étoiles sur 5 Everyday science at its best 1 août 2000
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
A variety of everyday phenomena are explained in this little book (185 pages). Most of it is optics and thermal physics, like frost and dew on the window, interference colors, mirages, heating and cooling (of LA smog, the greenhouse effect) origin of seasons, ...
Quite complex concepts like optical thickness are illustrated with nice experiments (pouring milk in water) and by foot steps in the snow. Don't be afraid of refractive index gradients or polarization upon reflection, Bohren will explain them marvelously.
I hope more physics textbooks would be like this: this is intriguing science whereas geometrical optics, the school book stuff, is mostly boring. Besides, these experiments and observations can be carried out by anybody with commonly available stuff: you only need a light bulb, a ruler and some volunteers to measure solar irrandiance, with 10-20% accuracy.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Better thanBohren's first book " Clouds in a Glass of Beer" 15 mars 2014

This was a light hearted explication of some elementary atmospheric phenomena. Even some of the items I knew well like light polarization upon reflection were presented in a fresh light. Perhaps the best explication for me was the discussion of how an increase in atmospheric carbon dioxide and methane led to an increased emissivity.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 great book if you're interested in some of the physics behind "weather" 17 décembre 2013

If you want to understand some of the physics behind "weather" then this is a pretty good book. As an engineer I really enjoyed that the author described his experiments, included photos and analyzed the results. His writing style is perfect, IMHO. He writes to about the 11th grade science level. So, you don't have to already know all of the terminology of atmospheric science. Yet, he'll cover all of the essential science in a thorough manner.

I was really interested in this subject, and had already spent about 6-9 months researching via Google. I still got a lot of useful info and insights from this book. I appreciated the author's writing style so much that I'd love to meet him and have a long discussion over a few beers... I know he would be entertaining.
4.0 étoiles sur 5 Good optics reference 28 mai 2013

I bought this book to have a handy-dandy reference to several cool atmospheric optics phenomena. I am pleased with it and glad that I now own it.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great insights to physics of weather and climate 24 octobre 2012

I've only read a couple select chapters at this point but if you liked the first book, you will like this one as well. I train k-12 science teachers and it is great to be able to dig a little deeper on various topics and be able to prepare for all sorts of questions. Also, I am sure many people have wondered why various phenomena occur and it is great to have some insights into them. Highly recommend this book!!
