Scope and Contents

Thomas Jefferson, "the father of weather observers," was an amateur meteorologist committed to climate observation and documentation at home and abroad. Although meteorological instruments were never perfected in his day (he experimented with three types of hygrometers in Paris), Jefferson meticulously recorded his observations, including temperature and conditions, twice a day and analyzed his data for averages and correlations between weather and biological events.
