Willem van IJzeren

Mr. van IJzeren sailed for a number of years as a mate with the Dutch and German merchant navy during and after the training of Grote Handelsvaart mate. One of the activities was keeping a meteorology journal, which aroused interest in the weather and everything that comes with it at sea.

After the merchant navy period, he became a teacher in nautical education in Rotterdam and Delfzijl, which led him to delve deeper into the theory of meteorology. He took the initiative to write a book about what developed into the current book.
