Second ITU/WMO Seminar "Use of Radio Spectrum for Meteorology: Weather, Water and Climate Monitoring and Prediction", ITU Headquarters, Geneva, Switzerland, 23 to 24 October 2017

​​​This seminar is organized by ITU and WMO with the objective of providing information on the use and further development of radio-based space and terrestrial systems and applications employed for weather, water and climate monitoring and relevant radio-frequency spectrum management activities.
The seminar aims to increase awareness of national meteorological or hydrological services (NMHS) of the importance of meteorological related spectrum protection and the growing need for their participation in national and international spectrum management activities.
The seminar aims to provide spectrum managers and state telecom administrators an overview of contemporary meteorological applications’ use of radio spectrum and their future development as well as to illustrate the socio-economic importance of these services within the context of the SDGs.
The seminar will also highlight a new edition of the WMO/ITU Handbook on the “Use of Radio Spectrum for Meteorology”. ​
