"These films explore meteorology from three interrelated aspects, providing a thorough understanding of what meteorology is, how it works, and its impact on our daily lives... pictorial representations allow the rather complex subject to be understood by a wide range of viewers. The formatting of the content for the entire series is well suited for classroom instruction, as each segment is divided into concise chapters. Clear connections are made between current meteorological phenomena and human influence."
