What We Do

The Meteorological Society is a group of people from around New Zealand (and overseas) who like to share their fascination in the weather and its antics. The Society was inaugurated at a meeting held in Wellington on 11 October 1979. The objects of the Society are to encourage an interest in the atmosphere, weather, and climate, particularly as related to the New Zealand region.
