Weather describes the condition of the air surrounding a particular area at a certain time and includes references to temperature, humidity, wind speeds, cloudiness, and precipitation. Climate refers to general weather conditions occurring in a defined area over an extended period of time. From the first use of mercury for measuring temperatures to the first occurrence of daily weather reporting, Weather and Climate profiles 10 historic and contemporary men and women who made significant contributions to the scientific community. Each chapter contains relevant information on the scientist's childhood, research, discoveries, and lasting contributions to the field and concludes with a chronology and a list of print and Internet references specific to that individual.
