About This Course

Having exact measurements of the atmosphere is very important in meteorology. This has been helped by the invention of suitable instruments for observation and by the organisation of a network of observing stations to gather weather data.

The art of weather forecasting has challenged many minds and much of the worldly wisdom displayed has been identified with weather lore and weather almanacs.
