David Lever started his working life in 1964 as an electronics engineer at the Institute of Hydrology at Wallingford, Oxfordshire, designing instruments and circuitry for measuring various parameters of the weather. After 4-5 years, his interest in meteorological science waned and he took to the road, travelling around Europe, North Africa and Israel.
