  • Description

    An International Commission for Weather forecasts is at present reunited in this city. The members of this commission who represent the following Countries bordering the Mediterranean are: Spain, France, Jugoslavia, Greece, Malta, Turkey, Lebanon, Israel, United Arab Republic, Libia, Tunisia, Maroc, Algeria and Italy; are working towards the unification of methods of work, signals, mapmaking etc in the weather forecasting field.

    The final goal of the Commission is the creation of a great central laboratory which will receive news concerning weather conditions from all over the Mediterranean basin, will "process" this news transcribe it on maps and emit bulletins in a single technical language understandable to all without need of special interpretation. Any pilot for instance on arriving at any air port will have a clear picture immediately of what he can expect on his route because the news he receives will be clear and understandable. This no doubt will contribute a good deal towards the safety of passenger life.
