Publisher: World Meteorological Organization
The World Meteorological Organization (WMO) is a specialized agency of the
United Nations. It is the UN system's authoritative voice on the state and
behaviour of the Earth's atmosphere, its interaction with the oceans, the
climate it produces and the resulting distribution of water resources.
The Bulletin has been the official journal of WMO since 1952. It is
published quarterly (January, April, July and October) in English, French,
Russian and Spanish editions.
The main articles are centred round a chosen topical theme related to the
work of the Organization in meteorology, climate, hydrology and water
resources, oceanography, the environment and related fields, covering a wide
range of topics, including research, information management, education and
training, applications (energy, transport, tourism, agriculture, fisheries,
etc.) and natural disaster reduction. These articles are of interest to the
scientific and technical community but also to readers in a number of
socio-economic sectors and the general public.
Each issue of the Bulletin also contains news from the WMO Secretariat, book
reviews and an article covering items from the corresponding issue of the
Bulletin 50 years ago.
