There are many types of weather that have caused untold number of deaths and damage throughout human history. Weather events have shaped culture and civilizations, with many events lost to history. It is the goal of Wikipedians to document these weather types, events, researchers, and trends. Since the 1960s, weather satellites have helped people around the world see the weather in real time. Computer models are getting better year after year in anticipating these disasters. Since 2001, Wikipedians have been writing about these weather events past and current. This page and its subpages contain their activities, assessments, suggestions, and web links related to these weather articles. It is hoped that this project will help to focus the efforts of other Wikipedians. If you would like to help, please inquire on the talk page and see the to-do list there.

For more information on WikiProjects, please see Wikipedia:WikiProjects and Wikipedia:WikiProject best practices.

TitleEdit

WikiProject Weather

ScopeEdit

The scope of WikiProject Weather is to have a single location for all weather-related articles on Wikipedia. This includes meteorology, which is the study of weather, describing the mechanics of weather phenomena such as wind or humidity. Meteorology includes atmospheric and oceanic phenomena, weather observation stations and networks, weather instrumentation and equipment, biographical articles on notable meteorologists, weather research projects, weather prediction and modeling, and phenomena related to every-day weather.

The project includes every weather type, such as blizzards, cold front, droughts, European windstorms, extratropical cyclones, nor'easters, rain, tornadoes, tropical cyclones, and wildfires. Historical events involving or caused by these phenomena are included. Wherever possible, there should be lists of every recorded instance of the weather type in a given area. For example, Floods in Australia, Tornadoes in Bermuda, Typhoons in the Korean Peninsula, and Snow in Florida.
