Above The Poles: Weather Observation Activity

This activity is also available in downloadable flyers in many languages

Each day, automated meteorological systems and human observers around the world produce and share weather data through a global network.  Predictions centres use the observations to produce global, regional and local forecasts.  The quality of these forecasts depends on accurate weather observations from polar regions.
