Taming tempests through telegraphy and media appearances: Science communication and the construction of a Swedish storm-warning system before the Great War

Holmberg, Gustav LU (2007) In Annals of Science 64(1). p.77-91
Abstract
The aim of this paper is to explore relations between science and the public. Specifically, Swedish meteorology around 1900 and the role of media relations in the construction of a storm-warning system will be discussed. It is argued that science - public interaction can be a factor in the process of establishing priorities in science.
