Bulletin nº Vol 64 (1) - 2015
Publish Date: 2 March 2015
Governments, private companies and individuals are demanding ever more sophisticated climate services, as manifested by the Global Framework for Climate Services (GFCS). But parts of the ocean observation network – paramount to the delivery of climate services – are at risk, and the evolution of climate prediction systems is not keeping pace in terms of accuracy and reliability. We are at a critical stage in observing and predicting the El Niño-Southern Oscillation (ENSO).

Bulletin nº Vol 62 (1) - 2013
Publish Date: 1 March 2013
Theme: Seamless Prediction of the Earth System: from nowcasting through medium range to seasonal forecasts Weather prediction is achieving immense progress. Driven by research and by the development of ever more sophisticated infrastructure – in telecommunications, computerization and observation systems – predictive skill now extends, in some cases, beyond 10 days. Warnings of severe weather events are now issued many days in advance. Partly due to these advances, the needs of the users have simultaneously diversified, and now routinely encompass “environmental” prediction products related...

Humanity must be able to anticipate future climate with some reasonable degree of confidence in order to innovate and adapt successfully. The proposed Global Framework for Climate Services promises to meet the challenge of providing effective climate services for decision-making in four initial priority areas – agriculture and food security, disaster risk reduction, health and water – before expanding to provide such services to a broader spectrum of users.

With this year’s World Meteorological Day, WMO celebrates “60 years of service for your safety and well-being”. This issue of the Bulletin joins the celebration, taking a look at the...
Bulletin nº Vol 58 (1) - 2009
Publish Date: 1 January 2009
The theme of World Meteorological Day this year is “Weather, climate and the air we breathe”. This issue of the Bulletin is conceived around the same theme, with articles on air quality and its manifestation in urban and surrounding regions, couplings with weather and climate change and the impact of pollutant deposition, including nitrogen, on the upper ocean. It opens with a message from the Secretary-General on the occasion of World Meteorological Day, as is customary in the January Bulletin.
