WMO DAY, 23RD MARCH 2016
The World Meteorological Day (WMO DAY) will be celebrated on the 23rd March 2016 and this year's theme is ("HOTTER, DRIER, WETTER --> FACE THE FUTURE".
As already known, our climate is really changing and will continue to change as more greenhouse gases emitted by human activities accumulates in the atmosphere.
To commensurate the day, the Seychelles National Meteorological Service is planning a set of activities that will create awareness to the public based on the subject.
SNMS Geared For Marine Information
The organization will be deploying its first ever mooring buoy that will measure ocean parameters in part of Seychelles sea waters. The buoy is part of a marine observing system that will facilitate the establishment of real-time data acquisition and assimilation. Processed information will help SNMS in issuing more accurate marine forecasts to local mariners and sea farers. The system will also provide for forecast verification and validation.
It is one project made possible by the Regional Integrated Multi-Hazard Early Warning System for Africa and Asia (RIMES) and the government of India.
Launch date is expected to be between 25th and 29th Feb 2016.
