Development of Modern Meteorology The origins of meteorology lie in qualitative observations of the local weather and speculation. On the whole, Aristotle's work was the standard reference in the ancient and medieval periods, until René Descartes, Galileo Galilei, and others began to replace speculation with instrumental observations in the early 17th century.
