Observations in the Great Unknown
Observations in the Great Unknown

Weather observations became a major business in the 19th century, as countries recognized the importance of this science and competed to gain economic and strategic advantages. The Austrians created the first national meteorological service in the world in 1851. England was a close second, as Admiral Robert FitzRoy founded the United Kingdom Meteorological Office in 1854. Other countries followed: India in 1875, Finland in 1881, and the United States Weather Bureau in 1890.

How Ancient Greece Created Our Climate Zones
How Ancient Greece Created Our Climate Zones

What do we plant? What do we wear? What weather hazards do we prepare for?

Climate classifications make it easier to provide answers to all of those questions. As a framework for identifying the general weather patterns and climate characteristics of a region, classifications are not just for researchers. They also create a shorthand that helps take effort out of day to day activities, long term planning, and travel and vacation plans.
