The Monthly Weather Review is a scientific journal published by the American Meteorological Society. Topics covered by the journal include research related to analysis and prediction of observed and modeled circulations of the atmosphere, including technique development, data assimilation, model validation, and relevant case studies. This includes papers on numerical techniques and data assimilation techniques that apply to the atmosphere and/or ocean environment.



The Monthly Weather Review began publication in July 1872 under the United States Army Signal Corps. It was issued by the Office of the Chief Signal Officer from 1872 until 1891. In 1891, the Signal Office's meteorological responsibilities were transferred to the Weather Bureau under the United States Department of Agriculture. The Weather Bureau published the Review until 1970 when the Bureau became part of the newly-formed National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. The NOAA published the Review until the end of 1973. Since 1974, it has been published by the American Meteorological Society.[1]
