Weather Monitoring & Forcasting

  1. 1. Weather monitoring & forecasting <br />By: Michelle Phillip<br />Date: Wednesday, March-31-10<br />1.<br />
  2. 2. TABLE OF CONTENTS<br />
  3. 3. INTRODUCTION<br />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.<br />
  4. 4. EARLY HISTORY<br /><ul><li>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. 5. By the 300 BC Chinese astronomers had developed a , each was one was known as different type of weather.
  6. 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.</li></ul>2.<br />
  7. 7. INVENTIONS<br /><ul><li>Nicholas Cusa of Germany designed a instrument to measure Humidity of the air
  8. 8. Galileo Galilei of Italy invented the Thermometer in the mid fifteenth century
  9. 9. Evangelista Torricelli of Italy invented the Barometer for measuring
  10. 10. Atmospheric pressure in 1643
  11. 11. Mid ninth centuries the telegraph was invented
  12. 12. From the 1860s Weather observing station began appearing all across the Globe
  13. 13. Radiosonde was invented in 1920</li></li></ul><li>RADIOSONDE<br />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.<br />3.<br />4.<br />Helium-filled balloon<br />1st Helium balloon being released<br />
  14. 14. Radiosonde Box<br />5.<br />
  15. 15. TOWARD NUMERICAL PREDICTION<br />Mathematician Vilhelm Bjerknes and Lewis Fry Richardson both were the first men whom work to produce a formula to predict the Weather.<br />
  16. 16. RICHARDSON METHOD<br /><ul><li>Richardson method fail
  17. 17. Invention of the Computer
  18. 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. 19. Juke Charney determine where Richardson had went wrong
  20. 20. By April 1950 Charney and his group made successful 24 hour forecast over North America</li></ul>6.<br />
  21. 21. <ul><li>Check long term and short term weather, at almost anywhere and anytime
  22. 22. Dress suitable for the weather/season
  23. 23. Know when flights are being cancelled a head of time
  24. 24. Track Hurricanes
  25. 25. Know when to Evacuate from a area when needed</li></ul>BENEFITS<br />
  26. 26. SUMMARY<br />In conclusion since 650 BC Astronomers, Mathematicians, Meteorologist and inventers have been trying to study how the weather work<br />Later the Telegraph and Computer was invented<br />Mathematicians' Vilhelm Bjerknes & Lewis Fry Richardson worked to create a formula but failed<br />Around April 1950 a group of student re-edited Richardson numerical formula, it was successful <br />Since then the Weather forecast is shown numerical in almost any part of the world<br />
