Description:

Founded in 1950, the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) is one of the oldest specialized agencies of the United Nations. With information available in Arabic, English, Spanish, French, and Russian, their website brings together information on weather, climate and water that will assist researchers and members of the pubic interested in meteorology and related fields. From their homepage, visitors can look over drop-down menus titled "Programmes" and "Topics". While the "Programmes" area contains more specialized information, the "Topics" section contains links to thematic pages on over four dozen areas of interest from aerosols to women in meteorology. Of course, there's plenty of information on weather conditions themselves, and visitors should move to the "Official Weather Forecasts and Warnings" area to be redirected to the WMO's Severe Weather Information Centre which contains a real-time interactive map of the world. As an additional suggestion, visitors should take a look at their online art gallery, which contains an exhibit that features artistic impressions of different weather conditions from around the world.
