Meet seven scientists who invented instruments to measure the weather, observed its patterns, and developed ways to predict it. Daniel Gabriel Fahrenheit built the first mercury thermometer. Benjamin Franklin proved the electrical nature of storms with his famous "kite experiment." Luke Howard studied clouds, creating the cloud classifications still used today. Vilhelm Bjerknes proposed the theory of fronts and Carl-Gustav Rossby revealed the existence of jet streams. Computer models of the atmosphere were pioneered by Jule Charney, and Howard Bluestein is one of the foremost modern "tornado chasers."
