Today is the World Meteorological Day. It takes place every year on 23 March and commemorates the coming into force on 23 March 1950 of the Convention establishing the World Meteorological Organization. It showcases the essential contribution of National Meteorological and Hydrological Services to the safety and wellbeing of society and is celebrated with activities around the world.
Developing a system that monitors and gives early warnings about natural events that pose a risk to aviation safety is ALARM’s aim, which, in addition to improving flight safety, also seeks to minimise the impact of aviation on climate change. Therefore, the objectives of the ALARM Project forms part of these contributions.

- A European monitoring and alert system on natural hazards for aviation
