This treatise contains Lambert's meteorological observations made in Chur during the years 1755-1756. The measuring instruments employed are a barometer, a hygrometer and a thermometer. Lambert's meteorological interests, pursued throughout his scientific carreer, were originally stimulated by a correspondence with Daniel Bernoulli and most probably by reading Petrus van Musschenbroek's work.
