This paper explores four main sources of industrial meteorology during the last fifty years. I argue that the current economic importance assigned to weather information assimilates the disciplinary growth of applied atmospheric research, environmental change and new priorities in science policies of the industrial world since the 1970s. More specifically, I demonstrate the combined effect of these developments in discussions relating the ascent of meteorological application with the researches in atmospheric resource, monetary value of weather products, economic cost of major climatic perturbations during the 1970s and the consequence emergence of weather and climate impact assessment models.
