Vilhelm Bjerknes is considered by many to be one of the founders of modernmeteorology and Top A portrait of Vilhelm Bjerknes. (Drawing by Hailey King)
Vilhelm Bjerknes is considered by many to be one of the founders of modern meteorology and weather forecasting. Born on March 14, 1862, in the Norwegian town of Christiania, Bjerknes was destined for a career in science. As a young boy, Bjerknes assisted his father, Carl Bjerknes (a professor of mathematics at the University of Christiania), in carrying out experiments to verify the theoretical predictions that resulted from his father's hydrodynamic research. He continued this collaboration during his undergraduate studies at the University of Kristiania in 1880 (the city was renamed Kristiania in 1877). After studying mathematics and physics, Bjerknes received his Master's Degree from Kristiania in 1888. During this time, he decided to cut all collaborative ties with his father, as he showed an increasing tendency toward professional isolation and a fear of publishing the results of his research. Young Vilhelm believed that continuing work with his father would be detrimental to his career, a tough decision for a son who was devoted to his father. Soon after graduation, Bjerknes was awarded a state scholarship that enabled him to continue his studies abroad. Arriving in Paris in 1889, he attended lectures on electrodynamics given by Jules Henri Poincare. Then, in 1890, he moved to Bonn, Germany, and became an assistant to, and eventually a scientific collaborator with, the German physicist Heinrich Hertz. Together, Hertz and Bjerknes conducted a comprehensive study of electrical resonance (an effect in which the resistance to the flow of an electrical current becomes very small over a narrow frequency range) that was influential in the development of radio. In 1892, Bjerknes returned to Norway and completed his doctoral thesis on the work that he did in Bonn.

12. EGS - Vilhelm Bjerknes
Vilhelm Bjerknes began his scientific career as a theoretical physicist. Vilhelm Bjerknes had a rare ability to attract and inspire gifted students.
European Geophysical Society Vilhelm Bjerknes The Section on Oceans and Atmosphere has established a new medal for distinguished research in atmospheric sciences. The medal is named after Vilhelm Bjerknes (1862-1951), one of the leading atmospheric scientists of the first half of this century. In the following there is a summary provided by Arnt Eliassen, Honorary Member of the EGS:
In a programmatic paper from 1904 he proposed the procedure Which is now called numerical weather prediction. He advocated that weather prognosis should be considered as an initial value problem of mathematical physics, and carried out by integrating the governing equations forward in time, starting from the observed atmospheric state.
The problems of analysis were further studied during Bjerknes's stay in Oslo and Leipzig. In 1917 Bjerknes settled in Bergen with two research assistants, his son Jack and Jack's fellow student Halvor Solberg; they were later joined by the Swedish meteorologist Tor Bergeron. This team put forward the polar front theory of cyclones, which has for 75 years served as an effective tool in weather analysis and forecasting.
Vilhelm Bjerknes had a rare ability to attract and inspire gifted students. He promoted progress in his field not only through his own work, but also by recruiting into geophysics a considerable number of students who later became prominent meteorologists or oceanographers. He was also efficient in making his and his co-worker's achievements known, not only to the scientific community, but to politicians and the public as well.

Vilhelm Firman Koren BJERKNES (1862 - 1951) Bjerknes was born in Oslo in 1862, the son of a professor who specialised in hydrodynamics. He is best known as the founder and inspirer of the Bergen school of frontal meteorology, but before that period he had already made a number of important original contributions, including the circulation theorems, the construction of contour charts of isobaric surfaces, and the introduction of absolute units of pressure. At the age of 20 he had already published original papers. Throughout his working life he made many contributions to pure hydrodynamics in addition to his work in meteorology. In 1893, the year of his marriage, he received a professorship at Stockholm, and there he developed his circulation theorems. He was not at first interested in geophysics, but his ideas found a receptive audience in the atmospheric and oceanographic communities. He first considered the solenoids formed by the isobaric-isosteric surfaces, which become significant when the horizontal temperature gradient is large, in relation to such problems as the vertical circulation of sea-breezes. Some years afterwards he brought in the earth's rotation. An important proposition included in these theorems is that when the area of a quasi-horizontal slab of air contracts, the circulation round its periphery is changed by the addition of cyclonic rotation, with the reverse effect when the area expands. In co-operation with Sandstrom he proposed the millibar as the best unit of pressure and afterwards pressed for its general adoption. In 1907 he went to Oslo and some years later published a book on

Died: 18 Oct 1871 in London, England
Babbage was responsible for the invention of an early antecedent of the modern computer, the analytical engine. There was much interest in calculating devices in his time, but the technology to make the analytical engine work was not yet available. In 1834, he designed the Analytical Engine, the precursor of the computer. He was unable to obtain funding for it from the government, who thought it would be worthless. Biography

"Gjennom 50 år har meteorologer i hele verden sett på værkart uten å oppdage de viktigste mønstrene på dem. Jeg ga bare den rette type kart til de rette unge menn, og de oppdaget fort rynkene i værets ansikt." Vilhelm Bjerknes' vitenskapelige arbeider er grunnleggende for all moderne værvarsling. Men også hans evne til å skape fruktbare forskningsmiljøer bidro sterkt til å heve nivået innen meteorologien. Bjerknes jobbetførst med matematisk teori for resonansfenomener og trådløs telegrafi. Fra omkring århundreskiftet ble han mer interessert i hydrodynamikk. Resultatet av dette arbeidet kjenner vi i dag som "Bjerknes' sirkulasjonssatser". Hans virkelige gjennombrudd kom da han startet arbeidet med å anvende hydrodynamisk teori til praktisk værvarsling. I perioden 1888 - 91 tok Vilhelm Bjerknes lærereksamen, og studerte siden ved euroepsiek læresteder i Paris, i Genève, og i Bonn. I 1891 ble Bjerknes amanuensis på Fysisk Institutt i Oslo.

Vilhelm Bjerknes Vilhelm Friman Koren Bjerknes March 14 April 9 ) was a Norwegian physicist and meteorologist who did much to found the modern practice of weather forecasting Born in Christiania , Bjerknes enjoyed an early exposure to fluid dynamics , assisting his father, Carl Anton Bjerknes , in his mathematical research. In , he became assistant to Heinrich Hertz and made substantial contributions to Hertz' work on electromagnetic resonance In , he became professor of applied mechanics and mathematical physics at the University of Stockholm where he elucidated the fundamental interaction between fluid dynamics and thermodynamics . It was this work that inspired both V. Walfrid Ekman and Carl-Gustav Arvid Rossby to apply it to large-scale motions in the oceans and atmosphere and to make modern weather forecasting feasible.
