Federation and Meteorology is an online resource drawing on the rich and authoritative historical resources of the Bureau of Meteorology, publishing on the Web for the first time major articles that have been difficult to access. The project was generously funded by the National Council for the Centenary of Federation, based on the observation that the emergence of Australian meteorology as a science parallels closely the story of Federation and was both influenced by and contributed to the ambition of nationhood.
The project unlocks the rich and evocative story of meteorology in Australia and provides broad public access via the Web to more than 600,000 words of text and 300 images. More than one hundred new biographical entries were added to the Bright Sparcs and Australian Science at Work databases, integrated with and complementing the online resource, and 15 existing Bright Sparcs entries were upgraded.
Development of these pages was made possible through the project, Federation and Meteorology, supported by the National Council for the Centenary of Federation.
