We are thrilled to announce the official publication of ‘Weather – A Force of Nature: Spectacular images from Weather Photographer of the Year’, published in partnership with the Natural History Museum. The book features a collection of unforgettable images of dramatic weather events from around the globe, taken from the past five years of RMetS’ acclaimed annual competition.
Now available from most mainstream booksellers, this book will make a great Christmas gift and coffee table book. Each page is filled with the most powerful and dramatic images of weather phenomena from every corner of the globe, that often reveal fascinating stories about what causes them and how they impact the environment. Each image was chosen by a panel of meteorologists, photographers and photo editors. They reflect a combination of skilful camera work and meteorological observation.
Five specific themes run throughout the images chosen for the book - the changing climate, extreme weather, the oceans, Earth’s frozen water and the natural world. There is an introductory essay for each theme written by renowned weather and climate experts, with an added essay on actions to tackle climate change.
To go with the book’s essays, we have produced a set of videos from the authors that will be shown on our stand in the Green Zone at COP26. They can also be seen via our YouTube channel and social media channels over the coming week.
The videos are as follows:
- Our climate and the ocean - Dr Katherine Hutchinson
- Our climate and the natural world - Professor Lesley Hughes
- Our climate and Earth's frozen water – Dr Michalea King
- How and why Earth’s climate is changing - Professor Richard P. Allan
- Our climate and extreme weather – Dr Mika Rantanen (voiced by Hannah Mallinson, Royal Meteorological Society)
- Actions to tackle climate change - Professor Jim Watson
