The meteorological service of the Athens National Observatory (meteo.gr) on Friday announced the operation of its first meteo weather station outside Greece, specifically in Sydney, Australia.
The new station will give details about weather conditions in an area of the southern hemisphere where many Greeks reside.
St Spyridon College and Achilleas Karras, an Australian of Greek descent, assisted in finding the site for the station, as well as its installation and supervision, while the effort was also supported by the Greek Consulate in Sydney.
The Observatory’s goal is the to expand the weather station network outside Greece and the researchers have called on members of Greek communities throughout the world that can support this effort to contact them.
