World Meteorological Day

23 March, 2021

World Meteorological Day marks the establishment in 1950 of the Convention establishing the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) (though it had been around since 1873). The 2021 theme is The Ocean, our climate and weather. The Ocean covers 70% of the Earth’s surface, provides vital resources, is the major driver of the world’s weather and climate and stores more than 90% of excess heat generated by human activities. Vote here on the 70 photographs shortlisted by WMO from over 1,000 entries in the photographic competition launched in 2020 to mark WMO’s 70th anniversary.
