John Dalton
Birth: Sep. 6, 1766
Death: Jul. 27, 1844

Meteorologist. He is fundamentally known as a meteorological pioneer who advocated the atomic theory. In 1793, he published meteorological observations and essays which recorded the changable climate of the Lake District in which he lived. He was also a fervent collector of botanical and insect species. He was the first to ascertain that rain is caused not by any alteration in atmospheric pressure but by a diminution of temperature. He developed his - the atomic theory, the thesis that all elements are composed of tiny, indestructible particles called atoms that are all alike and have the same atomic weight. More than 40,000 people came to Manchester to pay their final respects at his funeral. (bio by: s.canning)
