520    "Takes readers on a fascinating journey through an 
       everyday miracle. In a quest to understand how the 
       forecast works, he visits old weather stations and watches
       new satellites blast off. He follows the dogged efforts of
       scientists to create a supercomputer model of the 
       atmosphere and traces the surprising history of the 
       algorithms that power their work. He discovers that we 
       have quietly entered a golden age of meteorology -- our 
       tools allow us to predict weather more accurately than 
       ever, and yet we haven't learned to trust them, nor can we
       guarantee the fragile international alliances that allow 
       our modern weather machine to exist."--Dust flap
