Chart I by E. Halley was published in the Phil. trans., 1688, as supplement to his treatise "An historical account of the trade winds, and monsoons, observable in the seas between and near the tropicks, with an attempt to assign the phisical cause of the said winds." It is the first chart of the winds, and the earliest of all meteorological charts.
Chart II, Carte des lignes isothermes par M.A. de Humboldt, accompanied his treatise "Des lignes isothermes et de la distribution de la chaleur sur le globe," published in Mémoires de physique et de chemie de la Société d'Arcueil, v. 3, 1817. It is the earliest isothermal chart.
Chart III is one of thirteen synoptic charts published by E. Loomis in 1846.
