World Meteorological Day 2019
World Meteorological Day 2019 was observed on March 23 with the theme “The Sun, the Earth and the weather”.
The theme recognises the critical role the Earth’s nearest star plays in what transpires on the planet. The energy from the Sun is taken up by all life forms to perform their biological functions. The Solar energy also regulates global climate, which, in turn, influences local weather conditions and the same energy is also absorbed by the oceans which carry it around the planet, creating further conditions for diverse marine life to exist.
