  • 1. Weather monitoring & forecasting
    By: Michelle Phillip
    Date: Wednesday, March-31-10
    1.
  • 2. TABLE OF CONTENTS
  • 3. INTRODUCTION
    Weather Monitoring and forecasting is the application between Science and Technology, to predict the state of the Atmosphere for the future time and given locations. Which began with Civilizations using reoccurring Astronomical and Meteorological to help monitor change in the weather.
  • 4. EARLY HISTORY
    • From since around the 650 BC the Babylonians tried to predict short term weather changes which was based on the appearance of clouds and haloes.
    • 5. By the 300 BC Chinese astronomers had developed a , each was one was known as different type of weather.
    • 6. Around the 340 BC the Greek philosopher came up the theories about the formation of Rain, Clouds, Hail, Wind, Thunder, Lightening and Hurricanes. Which was considered for almost 2000 years.
    2.
  • 7. INVENTIONS
    • Nicholas Cusa of Germany designed a instrument to measure Humidity of the air
    • 8. Galileo Galilei of Italy invented the Thermometer in the mid fifteenth century
    • 9. Evangelista Torricelli of Italy invented the Barometer for measuring
    • 10. Atmospheric pressure in 1643
    • 11. Mid ninth centuries the telegraph was invented
    • 12. From the 1860s Weather observing station began appearing all across the Globe
    • 13. Radiosonde was invented in 1920
  • RADIOSONDE
    This Instrument help justify data. It was known as small light weight boxes equipped with weather instruments and radio transmitters. It was sent up high into the atmosphere by a hydrogen or helium-filled balloon, to transmit temperature, moisture and pressure data known as sounding back and forth from the station.

  • 15. TOWARD NUMERICAL PREDICTION
    Mathematician Vilhelm Bjerknes and Lewis Fry Richardson both were the first men whom work to produce a formula to predict the Weather.
  • 16. RICHARDSON METHOD
    • Richardson method fail
    • 17. Invention of the Computer
    • 18. A team of Meteorologist Mathematician came up with the idea to use the computer to help towards a more practical numerical Weather Forecast
    • 19. Juke Charney determine where Richardson had went wrong
    • 20. By April 1950 Charney and his group made successful 24 hour forecast over North America
    6.
  • 21.
    • Check long term and short term weather, at almost anywhere and anytime
    • 22. Dress suitable for the weather/season
    • 23. Know when flights are being cancelled a head of time
    • 24. Track Hurricanes
    • 25. Know when to Evacuate from a area when needed
    BENEFITS
  • 26. SUMMARY
    In conclusion since 650 BC Astronomers, Mathematicians, Meteorologist and inventers have been trying to study how the weather work
    Later the Telegraph and Computer was invented
    Mathematicians' Vilhelm Bjerknes & Lewis Fry Richardson worked to create a formula but failed
    Around April 1950 a group of student re-edited Richardson numerical formula, it was successful
    Since then the Weather forecast is shown numerical in almost any part of the world
