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 the latest developments in science and technology related to the Observatory's service on meteorology, radiation and geophysics. We welcome your views and suggestions.

The content of this issue is rich with articles covering various topics including "What is climate normal?", "What is carbon cycle?", "Under the influence of global warming, are tropical cyclone activities changing?", "On earthquake magnitudes" and "Randomness of rainstorms" etc. Selected Observatory's video clips are also included. The Hong Kong Observatory issued the Hurricane Signal No. 10 in July this year, the first time since 1999.  There are also article and video clip on this topic in this issue.
