On 4 December 1967 the Antarctic Meteorological Centre and the Presidente Pedro Aguirre Cerda base were destroyed by a volcanic eruption. Despite that, Chile was able to maintain operations in 1968 at a temporary Meteorological and Telecommunications Centre at the Presidente Gabriel González Videla base" (in Spanish text)

4MeteoWorld Pavilion - Shanghai Exposition, 2010: The general goal of the MeteoWorld Pavilion was to promote, through meteorology, the safety and well-being of people. More specifically, the Pavilion 1) demonstrated current developments in meteorological science and technology; 2) promoted ideas about prevention and reduction of meteorological disasters and adaptation to and mitigation of climate change; 3) discussed the exploitation and utilization of climate resources; and 4) provided a vision of delivering better meteorological services. In addition, from June through October, MeteoWorld emphasized various monthly topics, including meteorological observations, weather forecasting, weather services, and the exploitation and utilization of climate resources. There were also special theme days with increased interactions between meteorologists and public. The themes were: 20 June - Renewable Energies, Better Cities; 17 July - City Life and Meteorological Risks; 8 August, "Eyes" on the Global Weather; 16 September - Meteorological Services Making Life Better; and 16 October - Weather Forecasts Take Care of You Every Day.

7The Nainital State Observatory, which came into existence in 1954, was reborn in 2004 as ARIES, the Aryabhata Research Institute of Observational Sciences. It is a national facility for astronomy, astrophysics and the atmospheric sciences. Its research interests for the atmosphere include Lidar observations, aerosols, the dynamics of the middle and upper atmosphere and coupling processes between different regions of the atmosphere.
8The Australasian Antarctic Expedition (AAE), led by Douglas Mawson, was based at Cape Denison in Commonwealth Bay. Scientific measurements and exploration of the area by coastal and inland sledging journeys were carried out in 1912 and 1913. Commonwealth Bay is possibly the windiest coastal location on Earth, because of its physical morphology: the long steep slope that leads down from the high Antarctic plateau to the Bay at sea level is favorable for the formation of violent katabatic (downslope) winds that can create blizzards if there is fresh snow available to lift into the air. One main goal of the expedition was to make scientific measurements in various disciplines. A program of meteorological and magnetic measurements was carried out at Cape Denison. Cecil Madigan was the expedition meteorologist.
9On 1 January 1868, the German mathematician and specialist in navigation Wilhelm von Freeden founded in Hamburg a marine and meteorological institute called the North German Naval Observatory (Norddeutsche Seewarte). Von Freeden was its director until 1875 when it became part of the Navy and changed its name to the German Naval Observatory (Deutsche Seewarte). Its purpose was to promote and facilitate seafaring. It was composed of a department of marine meteorology, a bureau of nautical, meteorological and magnetic instruments, a department of coastal meteorology (including a signal service), and a bureau for testing chronometers. It transmitted telegraphic weather observations, and in 1875 began issuing marine storm warnings. The Seewarte's hydrographic tasks were transferred to the German Hydrographic Institute (DHI - Deutsche Hydrographische Institut) in 1945, which became the Federal Maritime and Hydrographic Agency (BSH - Bundesamt für Seeschifffahrt und Hydrographie) in 1990. The meteorological tasks of the Seewarte were taken over in 1952 by the newly-founded German Weather Service (DWD - Deutscher Wetterdienst). Since then, the DWD and the hydrographic agencies have collaborated in many areas.
