Ernest Gold CB DSO OBE FRS[1] (24 July 1881 – 30 January 1976) was a British meteorologist.[2][3][4]

He was born at Berkswell, near Coventry and educated at Mason University College (which later became the University of Birmingham)[5] and St John's College, Cambridge.[6]

Gold set up the first operational (military) meteorological service and demonstrated the vital role of meteorologists to the military hierarchy. He was mentioned in dispatches and was awarded the DSO and OBE and rose to the rank of Lieutenant-Colonel. Gold oversaw not only the creation of an operational weather service but also the development of international aviation services, becoming President of the Commission for Synoptic Weather Information of the International Meteorological Organization (now the World Meteorological Organization).

In 1919 he became deputy director of the Meteorological Office.[7]

He was President of the Royal Meteorological Society for 1934–35.[8]
