World Weather

With the weather in the news so much these days, I thought I would provide a resource for you. Forty-one years ago, the American Meteorological Society published the Glossary of Meteorology. Containing 7900 terms, more than 10,000 copies have been sold over four decades through five printings. It is a tribute to the editors of the first edition that it has withstood the test of time and continued to be among the leading reference sources in meteorology and related sciences. This is the electronic version of the second edition of the Glossary with more than 12,000 terms.

Hi, found your blog through your comment on Sissychong's blog.

Actually, now that I am here, let me contribute a link:

This is a huge French-English, English-French terminology database provided free of charge by the Office de la langue française du Québec.

To find an equivalent, change the "Langue d'interrogation" (source language) to français (French) or anglais (English), and the "Langue de l'équivalent" (target language) too. Type your term, hit the button, and voilà!

Thank you, I'm always happy to find out people are out there and actually reading, even more, appreciating this stuff. I've got a few things in the que, but I'll put your site in next, thank you.
