Weather and weather forecasting in colonial America by Peter R Eisenstadt( )

4 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first chapter describes the context of medieval meteorology in colonial America, especially as exemplified in physical explanations of the weather, conceptions of atmospheric effluvia, and the role of weather providence in early American culture. The second and third chapters explore aspects of weather astrology in colonial almanacs, primarily why certain almanac-makers either chose to include or scorn weather predictions. The advent of enlightened meteorology which presaged the decline of older effluvial theories as well as new notions of providence are discussed in the next chapter. The two subsequent chapters describe the beginnings of systematic meteorology and weather record-keeping. An extensive discussion of the scientific and ideological rationales that made weather recording attractive for so many in early America accompanies a review of the history of instrument-aided observation. The final chapter offers an overview of developments in cultural and institutional understanding of the weather in nineteenth-century America especially as it relates to communication and nationalism
