About this book

The Lewis and Clark Expedition of 1803-1806 systematically recorded weather and climate data during their 4,162-mile journey across largely uncharted territory. This data, organized by date and complemented by route descriptions and 50 color photos and historical maps, creates a fascinating look at the weather-related challenges that, at times, nearly derailed the Corps of Discovery from completing its mission and returning safely. Lewis and Clark is both a compelling read for weather and history buffs and a key resource for scientists researching climate history.

About the authors

VERNON PRESTON, National Weather Service warning coordination meteorologist in Pocatello, Oregon, compiled this volume of weather and climate data from the Lewis and Clark Expedition in 2004, at the start of the bicentennial anniversary of the Corps of Discovery Expedition (1804–06). The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) published this information as a technical memorandum in 2004 and distributed 100 copies. The American Meteorological Society (AMS) has reformatted the data and explanations of the significance of the expedition’s meteorological studies in this volume, which is meant for wider distribution to the public
