|Meteorology today relies on RADAR as an
important tool for analyzing and forecasting weather events.
Since the development of RADAR systems, weather has become
less mysterious. Oral and early written history tell of
legends associated with weather. Angry gods were to blame
for sudden violent weather events. Today, RADAR allows us to
foresee violent weather. Imagine how powerful a RADAR-equipped
meteorologist would have been in ancient times.
Early meteorologists were thought to be magicians, at least
when their forecast came true.
