Année de publication
National societies of meteorologists in Europe discovered each other's existence at a conference in 1993 and decided to cooperate on matters which would be practical to handle on a European scale. They decided in 1997 to establish a European Meteorological Society (EMS), not as a society with individuals as members, but rather as a society of societies. The development of this unusually structured organisation towards its foundation in 1999 will be described in Part 2.
