With its worldwide circulation in four languages (English, French, Russian and Spanish), the WMO Bulletin (basic press run: 6 500) is an ideal advertising medium for all items of interest to meteorologists and hydrologists and scientists working in related fields. In addition to its distribution within the National Meteorological and Hydrometeorological Services of all Members, the Bulletin is sent to the Services of those few remaining countries which do not yet belong to the Organization. It is also sent to various government departments, universities and scientific societies, as well as a wide circle of other relevant bodies and individual subscribers.
