Synopsis

A BOOK OF THE YEAR FOR NATURE, THE CHICAGO REVIEW OF BOOKS, AND BOOKLIST.







The extraordinary stories of six great scientists, whose discoveries shaped the way we view our planet today.







Meet the scientists who ascended volcanic peaks to peer through an atmosphere's worth of water vapour, cored mile-thick ice sheets to uncover the Earth's ancient climate history, and flew inside storm clouds to understand how small changes in energy can affect the Earth's atmosphere. Through six remarkable stories of ingenuity, creativity, and determination, Waters of the World delivers a better understanding of our planet's climate at a time when we need it the most.

Sarah Dry has been studying the history of meteorology and climate for more than 10 years. Her previous books include a biography of Marie Curie (2004) and The Newton Papers (2013). Born and raised in Philadelphia, she worked in environmental journalism, academic publishing, and biotechnology before moving to London in 2001 to study the history of science. She lives in Oxford with her family, and is on the board of the Science Museum.
