On a daredevil quest into the eye of the storm, an intrepid group of scientists, researchers and topgun pilots: in seven planes and armed with the best high tech gadgets money can buy embark on a treacherous journey in a struggle to understand the role of thunderstorms in the global warming puzzle. In this spectacular documentary, an international force of 250 experts who comprise I.C.E. (the International Cloud Experiment) converge on Darwin, Australia, the lair of "Hector," one of the planet's largest thunderstorms. As the pilots perilously edge closer, they battle life-threatening turbulence, lightning, grapefruit-sized hail, microbursts, mysterious "gravity waves," mechanical mishaps and the scientists themselves.

Killers in Eden( Visual )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For nearly a hundred years, the Australian coastal town of Eden was the setting for an extraordinary collaboration between two species--humans and killer whales--as they joined in hunts for migrating baleen whales ... Teams of killer whales would actually herd the plankton-eating baleen whales into the bay at Eden, and notify the whalers they had arrived with prey by smacking their tails on the water. Then they would wait for the men to come out with their boats and harpoons, to participate in the kill, and share in the spoils. Somehow, the killer whales had come to the conclusion that it was in everyone's best interests to participate in this unusual hunting strategy. And the whalers were glad for their help, which made their job so much easier. The depth of the relationship between the men and the killer whales as they worked side by side and year after year became so personal that the whaling community considered the killers members of their own family and referred to each of them by name."--Container

Killers in Eden( Visual )

2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tells the story of the most extraordinary partnership ever forged between humans and wild animals. Locals in the Australian town of Eden claim that beginning in the mid-1800s an intimate and co-operative relationship developed between human whalers and killer whales. The giant prey whales - minke whales, humpbacks, right whales, blue whales were herded into Twofold Bay by the killer whales. This allowed the shore-based human whalers to close in for the kill. Working together in Eden, man and beast were able to do something neither could have managed on their own; killing the largest whales on earth. The two hunters then shared the spoils through an arrangement known as the 'Law of the Tongue'. Whale enthusiast Greg Mckee joins forces with eminent zoologist Danielle Clode to investigate the intimate details of the relationship. Together, they reveal not only the fascinating details of how the partnership began, but also why it tragically ended
