520    The sea breeze affects our lives in many ways; it controls
       our local weather, not only on the coast but also in many 
       districts inland. Air pollution and smog, the distribution
       of air-borne insect pests and the spread of pollen are all
       controlled by the sea breeze. In the world of sport it is 
       important to glider pilots, sailors and surfers, and 
       balloonists. In this book we see how radar, lidar and 
       satellite photography have helped to forecast and map the 
       sea breeze and the all important 'sea-breeze front'. The 
       book ends with a description of laboratory experiments, 
       mostly carried out by the author and his co-workers, and a
       simple summary of theoretical models. This book will be 
       welcomed by those researching in the subject but will also
       be valuable to the general reader who is interested in 
       local weather and the natural environment.
