HISTORY OF CANADIAN METEOROLOGY: 

A BIBLIOGRAPHY

Morley K. Thomas

February 2009

In 1983, when I retired from the Meteorological Service, I entered into an Agreement with the Assistant Deputy Minister which gave me office accommodation and access to the library and archives. In return I volunteered to research and write on the history of meteorology in Canada. At that time I began to search for and examine articles, papers, books and anything already published on the subject. I noted the publication details of each and over the years a substantial bibliography has accumulated.

This bibliography is certainly not complete but during my first twenty or so years of retirement I worked on a fairly regular basis in the Downsview library and was able to inspect current and archived periodicals and the occasional book containing information on the service’s history. However, since the early 2000s my visits to 4905 Dufferin have become increasing less frequent and I am sure the bibliography is markedly incomplete since about 2003. In addition I know that in recent years there have been  many regional climate history studies published which I have been not been able to include.

I also wish to note that this bibliography was not designed to cover publications of climate data and information. A published series, Bibliographies of Canadian Climate, cover the data and information area up to 1981 but I am not aware of any such collections in the past twenty-five years. There are undoubtedly many items in those bibliographies that should be included in this bibliography. 

Most of the items listed in this collection can be found in the Environment Canada Downsview Library, 4905 Dufferin Street, Downsview.
