Following the publication more than 50 years ago of Climate and the British Scene by Professor Gordon Manley, leading climatologist John Kington presents subsequent developments and discoveries made in the study of British Isles climate and weather. Offering a comprehensive and up-to-date survey of the diverse climate of the British Isles, this study examines the ways in which regional climates evolve from the interplay of meteorological conditions and geography of the British Isles, analyzes climatic characteristics, and provides a historical overview of changing weather patterns, which is complemented by fascinating and never-before published photographs. Reviewing the history and causes of climatic change and evaluating regional models, this New Naturalist volume offers an important analysis of climatic variations.
