Questions 1 to 10
The Sun in our climatic system delivers energy to the Earth and its atmosphere. This
energy is transferred from the Sun across space in the form of electromagnetic radiation.
Since the Sun is at a very high temperature the radiation it emits is in short-wavelengths,
mainly in the form of visible and so called near infra-red radiation. The Sun sends this
radiation out in all directions but only a small fraction of the total emitted reaches the Earth.
Moreover, that amount depends on the distance of the Earth from the Sun. Therefore, the
relationship of the Earth to the Sun is crucial to the solar energy received by the Earthatmosphere system (Source: WMO-No 726)

The Bureau of Meteorology is the National Meteorological Service for Australia. It was
established by an Act of the Commonwealth Parliament in 1906 to provide essential
meteorological services to all sectors of the Australian community. Its operation as a single
integrated Commonwealth science agency reflects the pervasive influence of weather and
climate on all our lives and the fact that the atmosphere recognizes neither State nor national
boundaries.
This Service Charter has been prepared in response to the Governments requirement that
all government bodies which provide services to the public will develop individual charters.
It is based on the Bureaus current official charter which elaborates its statutory
responsibilities under the Meteorology Act 1955 in the light of Australias contemporary
national needs and international obligations.
The first issue of the Bureau Service Charter was published in June 1998. It has been
developed by Bureau staff and management through consultation with a wide cross-section of
those in the community who use its services. We in the Bureau want to make sure that the
services we provide are what you need, that we are able to provide them to your satisfaction
and that all our staff will take pride in the contribution that their work makes to your safety,
security and general well being, and to the economic, social and environmental benefit of
Australia. (Source: WMO-No.834)
