Introduction:



The HKO e-Bulletin on Educational Resources is published on-line every three months. It covers in layman terms various interesting topics related to weather phenomena and popular science, as well as developments in new science and technology related to the Observatory's service on meteorology, radiation and geophysics. We welcome your views and suggestions.

In view of the rich content of the Observatory's Educational Resources and the increasing number of articles, the categorization of articles was enhanced and a new "Article Searching Function" was added recently for ease of browsing the articles. Relevant articles can be searched by simply entering the key string related to the article content. Then, readers will get the links of relevant articles. The "Article Searching Function" is available in the following webpage: http://www.weather.gov.hk/en/education/edue.htm
