Preface (continued)

I have agreed to the publication of an amended and updated version of my thesis in the Metarch Papers series in the hope that it will contribute in some small measure to the growing interest in the history of Australian science and its institutions, and many thanks go to Ian Forrest for his patience and editorial assistance in bringing this about. My thesis does not claim to be a complete history of the Bureau of Meteorology, as that opus will require much more time and research than was available to the author at the time of writing.

Please note that the views expressed in this Metarch Paper are entirely mine, and do not necessarily represent those of the Bureau of Meteorology or its representatives.
