    Meteorology - A brief history. Meteorology - the study of the atmosphere and it's phenomena. First discussed by Aristotle, B.C. wrote a book entitled Meteorologica - summarized meteorological knowledge to date. These considerations naturally divide the physics of the earth into three essential parts, the first being a theory of the atmosphere, or Meteorology, the second, a theory of the earth's external crust, or Hydrogeology, and the third, a theory of living organisms, or .

    Meteorology is the study of Earth's atmosphere. In this lesson, learn the difference between meteorology and climatology, and explore the history and interdisciplinary nature of its study. Minimum Thermometer: Most useful device for indicating the minimum temperature is a spirit in glass thermometer having a small index immersed in spirit in the stem. If the thermometer is tilted such that the bulb is slightly higher than the stem the index will fall until its lower end reaches the end of the spirit column.

    For a brief discussion of early views on the correct location of the thermometer, see W. E. Knowles Middleton, A History of the Thermometer and Its Use in Meteorology (Baltimore, ), Washington's temperature records begin Jan. The mercury thermometer is a device commonly found within amateur weather stations. It consists of a glass bulb connected to a stem, in which liquid mercury is placed. As the temperature increases, thermal expansion causes the mercury volume to increase and extend along the glass tube. A scale is written on the glass tube, allowing the observer.
