Federation and Meteorology is an online resource drawing on the rich and authoritative historical resources of the Bureau of Meteorology, publishing on the Web for the first time major articles on meteorology that have been difficult to access until now.

Through the web-publication of seminal meteorological articles, totalling over 600,00 words, the story of the establishment of the Australian Bureau of Meteorology has been told.

The project was generously funded by the National Council for the Centenary of Federation, based on the observation that the emergence of Australian meteorology as a science parallels closely the story of Federation and was both influenced by and contributed to the ambition of nationhood.
