L'Observatori meteorològic de Girona : història i documentació

Josep Batlló Ortiz, Montserrat Hosta

Resum


Several meteorological observatories have been operated at the city of
Girona; but, from the scientific and social point of view, the most important one was
that operated at the «Institut» (secondary school) at least from 1884 and closed down
on 1973. The names of important professors on physical and natural sciences are related
to it. At present, an important documentary heritage of this observatory is preserved
at the Girona Historical Archive. Present work uses all available information to
sketch a short history of the Girona Meteorological Observatory, its cultural context
and to perform a preliminary evaluation of its pedagogical and scientific importance.
