A detailed account of the meteorological services in practice in Canada during World War II, and a thorough examination of the men behind the forecasts: the nearly 400 science graduates who became "metmen" and were stationed at flying training schools. This book explains the importance of aviation weather forecasts and instruction in meteorology for student pilots at the Royal Canadian Air Force stations established under the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan. Cooperation with the United States military weather services is also examined. (source: Nielsen Book Data)
