Papers are requested on international aspects of the history of meteorology, broadly construed to include scientific, environmental, social, political and cultural issues. How did meteorology emerge as an international science? What tensions have existed between national weather services, national research styles, and international or global agendas? What are the social and/or cultural implications of trans-national research, education, and forecasting?
