Stockholm Meteorological Station

Understanding, tracking, and predicting the weather is something that humanity has been obsessed with for millennia. However, it wasn’t until the 18th century that science was able to develop accurate tools and data storage methods to understand weather patterns.

Around this time, meteorological institutions began to pop up across the globe along with the construction of weather stations. Sweden’s first weather station was designed by Pehr Wilhelm Wargentin, the secretary of the Swedish Royal Society and director of the Stockholm Observatory in 1754.
