A miscellany of pages that I find interesting (and hope that you may do also) about the history of meteorology, the Beaufort scale etc.
How the Beaufort scale came into being and why it is still used in many countries has fascinated me for many years. Meteorology has a very long history although it has only been in the last 150 years and, especially the last 50 that real progress has been made.
