Politics, Statistics and Weather Forecasting, 1840-1910 Taming the Weather

by Aitor (University of the Basque Country) Anduaga

Part of the Routledge Studies in the History of Science, Technology and Medicine Series

Politics, Statistics and Weather Forecasting, 1840-1910 Taming the Weather Synopsis

Weather forecasting is the most visible branch of meteorology and has its modern roots in the nineteenth century when scientists redefined meteorology in the way weather forecasts were made, developing maps of isobars, or lines of equal atmospheric pressure, as the main forecasting tool. This book is the history of how weather forecasting was moulded and modelled by the processes of nation-state building and statistics in the Western world.
