Abstract

The development of the atmospheric sciences in Iowa began in a very simple manner, with the entry of the earliest meteorological and climatological observations into logs, journals and private correspondence and the recording of weather proverbs and lore. These simple environmental records provide virtually all our historical meteorological knowledge until the U.S. Army forts began their systematic, but often short-term (in number of years) daily record of weather in 1819.
