Abstract

special news feature The Hong Kong Meteorological Society was recently established in an effort to promote science and its applications in Hong Kong. The society, which was registered on 9 December 1988, is seeking interested scientists to join the membership and promote its goals. The main objectives of the society include developing and disseminating knowledge of meteorology and related oceanic, hydrologic, and geographic sciences. The society will promote the advancement of profes- sional applications of meteorology, the understanding of weather among the public, and an appreciation of the value of meteorology and its applications. Collaboration among members of the society, individuals, and corporate or unicorporate bodies who share the society's interests is sought to achieve these goals. The office bearers of the Hong Kong Meteorological Society session 1989-90 are Patrick P. Sham, chairman; William J. Kyle, vice-chairman; Y. K. Chan, honorary secretary; S. I. Hsu, honorary treasurer; Fred J. Hick- ernell, Y. S. Li, and S. L. Hung, committee members; John C. T. Wu, honorary auditor; and Venus Choy, honorary legal advisor. Applications are now being accepted. Categories of membership are fellow, a meteorologist or scholar with research experience in meteorology; associate member, any person with an interest in meteorology; student member, a student attending any of the universities or post-secondary colleges in Hong Kong wh o is interested in meteorology; and corresponding member, a meteorologist residing outside Hong Kong. The entrance fee has been waived for admission in 1989; information about admission following 1989 is available from the society. For further information or an application form, write Y. K.
