A Glimpse Of The Past Through The Meteorology Collection - The earliest methods of weather forecasting, mostly direct observations of the sky, were enhanced greatly in 1643 when Italian physicist Evangelista Torricelli invented the barometer to measure air pressure. He was able to determine that air pressure changes corresponded to changes in the weather. Significantly, he was able to show that a drop in air pressure very often preceded storms. Then the invention in 1644 of the hygrometer enabled scientists to measure humidity. The mercury thermometer was first successfully devised by German physicist Daniel Fahrenheit in 1714, making accurate measurements possible. Prediction of the weather a day or two in advance became feasible. In fact, daily measurements of air pressure, moisture content, wind speed, and wind direction were begun in 1765. Morse's telegraph made possible the broadcasting of the weather data so it could be acted upon. As in every field of endeavor, those involved in day to day activities always owe a debt of gratitude to those visionaries who went before. Early amateur radio operators are responsible for making possible communications we take for granted today, including communication and weather imaging satellites which transmit radio and radar images. Satellites of course are directly dependent on early rocket research by Goddard done partially at Fort Bliss in New Mexico. On TV we daily see the use of radar and satellites in weather to visually enhance our perception of the weather. Meteorology is in the position of not only understanding many forces that produce weather, but being able to publish with considerable accuracy usable weather data in almost every spot on the map.
