Predicting the Weather

Victorians and the Science of Meteorology

Victorian Britain, with its maritime economy and strong links between government and scientific enterprises, founded an office to collect meteorological statistics in 1854 in an effort to foster a modern science of the weather. But as the office turned to prediction rather than data collection, the fragile science became a public spectacle, with its forecasts open to daily scrutiny in the newspapers. And meteorology came to assume a pivotal role in debates about the responsibility of scientists and the authority of science. Studying meteorology as a means to examine the historical identity of prediction, Katharine Anderson offers here an engrossing account of forecasting that analyzes scientific practice and ideas about evidence, the organization of science in public life, and the articulation of scientific values in Victorian culture. In Predicting the Weather, Anderson grapples with fundamental questions about the function, intelligibility, and boundaries of scientific work while exposing the public expectations that shaped the practice of science during this period. A cogent analysis of the remarkable history of weather forecasting in Victorian Britain, Predicting the Weather will be essential reading for scholars interested in the public dimensions of science.

Literary Nonfiction. New Hampshire's Mount Washington is known as "Home of the World's Worst Weather." A handful of hardy souls live on the mountain's Observatory year-round. Do they have to be just a bit unusual to seek out such a career? Perhaps. But the Observatory crew find much to enjoy in their icy home--even when it means dealing with hundred-mile-per-hour winds, wandering moose, and odd questions from visitors. They are also treated to spectacular sunsets, spine-tingling thunderstorms, and breathtaking toboggan runs. Former observer Eric Pinder describes with wry humor the joys and terrors of living in the clouds and explains Mount Washington's geology and weather. The book ends with a one-of-a kind cookbook of favorite "Recipes from the Rockpile."
