So what does
provides a series of functions. We provide live satellite
pictures, (Meteosat and NOAA) using the British Aerospace
DartCom system, print weather faxes, log weather and
provide daily weather predictions for the school. We also
provide weather printouts for General Studies and A
level Geography groups.
How long has
BSMO been operating?
Office has been operating for about six years. Since then,
a series of Bournemouth School boys have all helped at
the Met Office. The current BSMO team took over in
September 1998. We hope to carry on in this current
format until at least July 2000, and possibly longer.
There is currently a long waiting list for the positions
by other members of the school, such is the demand.
Did you get
any pictures of Hurricane Mitch?
pictures of Hurricane Mitch whilst it moved over the
Caribbean. We, unfortunately, were not able to track it
when it was at its fiercest over Central America.
How often do
you provide your weather service?
school day of the year; wind, rain or snow! We have a
rota and take turns in using the computer which uses the
satellite system. This rota also applies to the daily
logs and predictions.
What do you
hope to eventually do with the data collected?
years, we have and continue to build up vast amounts of
data. This means that GCSE and A level
project data is readily accessible to students. We hope
that by modelling the data already collected, we will be
able to understand and predict the weather even more

You can tell we love the weather here at BSMO! And with the winter weather here, we'd like to recommend Hunter wellies which are fantastically made, great value and available in a humungous range of colours.
