Managed for most of its life by monks and operated today by MeteoSwiss, the meteorological station at Grand-St-Bernard, located high in the Swiss Alps near the border with Italy, is today celebrating 200 years of uninterrupted meteorological observation. During the ceremony, the World Meteorological Organization presented the station with a certificate and a commemorative metal plate designating it as a Centennial Observing Station. The ceremony was attended by representatives of WMO, MeteoSwiss, the Observatory of Geneva, the canton of Valais, and members of the local monastery.
