About this title

Synopsis:

The Lewis and Clark Expedition (1803–06) systematically recorded weather and climate data during their 4,162-mile journey. This volume collects all such data from their various journals, describes the importance of this first-of-its-kind meteorological undertaking, and includes a color pictorial of the Lewis and Clark Trail. It will serve as a compelling resource for weather, history, and Lewis and Clark buffs alike, as well as for scientists looking back at weather and climate in the early 1800s.

About the Author:

Vernon Preston, National Weather Service warning coordination meteorologist, marked the beginning of the bicentennial anniversary of the Lewis and Clark expedition (1803-1806) by compiling the weather and climate data from various expedition journals. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) published this information as a technical memorandum in 2004 and distributed 100 copies. In this volume, the American Meteorological Society has reformatted the data and included explanations of the significance of the expedition s meteorological studies. The result is a lasting record that will benefit generations of history buffs and scientists alike.
