World Meteorological Day 2007

February 27, 2007

World Meteorological Day is celebrated every year on March 23, which is based on the date of the first WMO convention, which is dated March 23, 1950. Each year, this warning is accompanied by a discussion of the different themes, and in 2007, the theme is "Polar Meteorology : understanding Global Impact or Polar Meteorology: understanding the Impact (Amendment) Global".

This theme is taken to introduce the importance of polar regions in the global atmospheric system. The determination of this theme is also associated with the launching of the International Polar Year 2007-2008 (International Polar Year, IPY 2007-2008) sponsored by WMO and the International Council of Science (International Council for Scince, ICSU). The basic concept of the IPY is an intensive international coordination, studies across a variety of disciplines and observations focused on the Earth's polar regions and how much influence on the world community. The study will begin in March 2007 until March 2009, with a view to ensuring that researchers can work in both polar regions during the summer and winter, and involved more than 200 projects with thousands of scientists from 60 countries.
