The Royal Meteorological Society is the Professional and Learned Society for Weather and Climate. The Society serves not only those in academia and professional meteorologists, but also those whose work is affected in some way or other by the weather or climate, or simply have a general interest in the weather. The membership includes scientists, practitioners and a broad range of weather enthusiasts with membership open to anyone with an interest in weather and climate.
The Society is over 165 years old and was established on 3 April 1850. The programmes of the Society are broad and diverse. The Society administers the national qualifications of the profession, publishes seven international science journals and has an active education programme for teachers and children. Our programme of conferences and meetings bring together scientists and students, operational and amateur meteorologists, and industry from across the international community.
RMetS also provides support to the media and is actively involved in the Government policy development on areas around weather and climate change.
Our mission statement is ‘to promote meteorology as a science, profession and interest.’ To find out more about the Royal Meteorological Society and becoming a member, please visit: www.rmets.org
