Letters in the earth sciences: written in the past useful in the future

By Graziano Ferrari


<p style="margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 9.0px Times;">This contribution presents a balance of the research performed in some national and international projects concerning the history of seismology with a view to the scientific and historical use of scientific correspondence between earth science scholars. We also present some of the contents of the scientific correspondence studied in the course of those projects. As many scholars and observatories, above all in the 19th century, operated in different sectors of the earth sciences at the same time, we highlight the importance of a coordinated collaboration between scholars and relevant institutions and in valorising the epistolary assets produced by the earth sciences observation networks.</p> <br /&gt
