Duncan Blanchard's FROM RAINDROPS TO VOLCANOES, officially volume 50 in the Science Study Series, was among the very best. Blanchard starts with such simple questions as: how do rain drops form?, how big are they?, what is their shape?, and proceeds to show how the pursuit of these questions can lead one, step by step, very far from where one began. As such, it is not only a beautiful illustration of the logic of scientific investigation, but also a wonderful example of the excitement and open-ended nature of a life in science.Read more ›
You will learn, among many other things, how bubbles are formed in the sea, how they break and form a jet, and how the jet produces drops that are ejected into the air above.
Everything starts with observations, followed by experiments (involving a minimum of equipment) in an effort to understand what goes on in the ocean of air, and its interaction with the surface of the sea.
