An Ocean of Air: A Natural History of the Hemisphere

by Gabrielle Walker
£8.99   paperback  Bloomsbury Publishing PLC (2008)

An Ocean of Air: A Natural History of the Hemisphere by Gabrielle Walker We not only live in the air, we live because of it. At ground level air transforms miraculously; it wraps our planet in a blanket of warmth, while the outer layer of our atmosphere soaks up violent flares from the sun. In this fascinating celebration of the Earth's fragile atmosphere, Gabrielle Walker traces a journey of groundbreaking scientific discovery from the first experiments in the Renaissance to recent findings in space.

"More like an exhilarating adventure tale than a popular science book. It's unlikely that you'll ever look up at the sky in quite the same way again."
(Independent on Sunday)
