Training Course on Application of Integrated Aeronautical Meteorological Data for Aviation (Bangkok, Thailand, 20-26 July 2007)

The Thai Meteorological Department (TMD) and Hong Kong (China) Observatory (HKO) jointly organized a training course on aeronautical meteorology for more than 50 meteorologists from Thailand and Cambodia. The training course took place at TMD’s Bureau of Meteorology for Transportation at the new Suvarnabhumi Airport in Bangkok, Thailand. Mr C.M. Shun, Acting Assistant Director of HKO and vice-president of the WMO Commission for Aeronautical Meteorology (CAeM) and Mr P.W. Li, Acting Senior Scientific Officer of HKO, were invited to provide lectures on low-level windshear, thunderstorms, lightning and their detection for aviation applications.

The training course was the result of close cooperation among WMO Members in promoting the knowledge of aeronautical meteorology. It is expected that similar training events and exchanges will be organized in the near future to further build the capacity of National Meteorological and Hydrological Services of developing countries in the region.
