This enlightening text offers a comprehensive review of the evolution of the field of meteorology, from its infancy in 3000 BC, through the birth of fresh ideas and the actual naming of the field as a science, to the technology boom, to today. The Evolution of Meteorology reveals the full story from where meteorology was then to where it is now, where the field is heading, and what needs to be done to get the field to levels never before imagined.
