Kenneth J. Davis - professor of meteorology, Penn State University Park

Book Title: Clouds in a glass of beer

Author: Craig Bohren

Book Description:

When I was in graduate school I became temporarily discouraged with research as a career direction because of the isolation of working alone on an independent research effort. I much prefer working in a group, but graduate research is primarily about individual accomplishment. I remained committed to finishing my degree, however, because of a persistent interest in teaching. I used this book as background for many presentations that I gave to grade school classrooms in the Boulder-Denver area. This book and those presentations were an important source of delight in my years as a graduate student.
