300 years of weather observations – from Celsius to the present day

This year Uppsala is celebrating 300 years of weather observations. The measurements were started by Uppsala scientists Erik Burman and Anders Celsius in 1722, so this series is one of the oldest continuous series of data about our planet in the world – with great relevance to present-day climate research and future challenges.

In pictures and words the exhibition tells us about Celsius and both his and our present research around climate.

2 June – 3 October 2022

Open all days 7–21, in the north east part of the Baroque Garden in The Botanical Garden.
