Syllabi for Instruction in Agricultural Meteorology.
De Villiers, G. D. B.; And Others
A working group of the Commission for Agricultural Meteorology has prepared this report to fill a need for detailed syllabi for instruction in agricultural meteorology required by different levels of personnel. Agrometeorological personnel are classified in three categories: (1) professional meteorological personnel (graduates with basic training in meteorology); (2) agricultural scientists (graduates with basic training in agricultural sciences); and (3) technical assistants in agrometeorological services (non-graduates, with training in mathematics and physics at the secondary or high school level). Proposed qualifications and training of these three classes of personnel are detailed, indicating the standard of knowledge required and the extent of the field to be covered. In addition, a syllabus is developed for teaching agricultural meteorology at secondary schools (advanced education below university degree level) of agriculture, horticulture, and forestry. It consists of a number of lectures and practical exercises to be introduced into the program of such schools. The list of textbooks and published lecture notes or monographs is compiled alphabetically by author with special listings of technical publications and World Meteorological Organization publications.
