AMetA Magazines
AMetA (the Australian Meteorological Association Inc) was established in 1969 under the direction of John ‘Doc’ Hogan, the then South Australian Regional Director of the Bureau of Meteorology. One of its primary purposes has been to open up communication between the Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) and people in the community who either use weather services or have an interest in meteorology.

Long term member William Slaytor has provided a more comprehensive history of the AMetA; as well as a Meeting List covering all of the AMetA's public meetings.

The Association was wound up in 2023, over taken by social and industry changes. There is now a wealth of knowledge on the Internet available to the general public.
