Hong Kong Observatory will open up its facilities to the public next month to showcase the work of the HKO.
The Open Day will be held at the Observatory Headquarters at 134A Nathan Road, Kowloon on November 26 and 27. The exhibitions at the Open Day will showcase how the HKO applies the latest technology to provide various services including weather forecasting, aviation weather services, microclimate monitoring and radiation monitoring.
With the theme “Early Warning and Early Action. Hydrometeorological and Climate Information for Disaster Risk Reduction”, the weather watchdog said it aims to raise public awareness of the risks associated with extreme weather under climate change, and encourage all to exercise early preparatory actions and contribute to disaster reduction.
