Reply [to “Comment on ‘Norwegians led the way in training wartime weather officers’”]



I appreciate the acknowledgment of my article and note the discrepancies that were mentioned. The legacy in science of the Bjerknes family was mentioned when I was a student in 1942. C. Bjerknes, who worked with Helmholz, his son, V. Bjerknes, and then, of course, Jakob. I did not know much at that time of the importance of Jakob's father. After my article was printed, I learned of a superb book about V. Bjerknes, Appropriating the Weather, by Robert Marc Friedman.
