Wave Power

Wave power uses the kinetic energy (movement) and potential energy of ocean waves as a resource.  In principle this can be used to generate electricity.  However, the practicalities of harnessing waves have proved difficult to overcome in a cost effective manner for this type of energy production to take off in the UK.

Wave power is commonly confused with tidal power which is actually a significantly different technology.

World Meteorological Organization

The World Meteorological Organization (WMO) is an intergovernmental organisation with a membership of 193 Member States and Territories.  It originated from the International Meteorological Organization (IMO), the roots of which were planted at the 1873 Vienna International Meteorological Congress.  Established by the ratification of the WMO Convention on 23 March 1950, the World Meteorological Organization became the specialised agency of the United Nations for meteorology (weather and climate), operational hydrology and related geophysical sciences a year later.  The Secretariat, headquartered in Geneva, is headed by the Secretary-General.  Its supreme body is the World Meteorological Congress.
