Calculating the weather meteorology in the 20th century by Frederik Nebeker( )
17 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 1,196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Examines the various roles of computation throughout the history of meteorology, paying attention to the period from World War I to the 1960s. This title explains how forecasting the weather became a physics-based science. It studies the impact of the computer on meteorology, and provides an example of science transformed by the computer
Dawn of the electronic age : electrical technologies in the shaping of the modern world, 1914 to 1945 by Frederik Nebeker( Book )
11 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 745 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Much of the infrastructure of today's industrialized world arose in the period from the outbreak of World War I to the conclusion of World War II. It was during these years that the capabilities of traditional electrical engineering--generators, power transmission, motors, electric lighting and heating, home appliances, and so on--became ubiquitous. Even more importantly, it was during this time that a new type of electrical engineering--electronics--emerged. Because of its applications in communications (both wire-based and wireless), entertainment (notably radio, the phonograph, and sound movies), industry, science and medicine, and the military, the electronics industry became a major part of the economy. Dawn of the Electronic Age explores how this engineering knowledge and its main applications developed in various scientific, economic, and social contexts, and explains how each was profoundly affected by electrical technologies. It takes an international perspective and a narrative approach, unfolding the story chronologically."--P. 4 of cover
