Training of Hydrometeorological Personnel.
Hzmaljan, K. A.; And Others
A working group of the Commission for Hydrometeorology has prepared this report to fill a need for detailed syllabi for instruction in hydrometeorology required by different levels of personnel. This situation has been brought about by the shortage or lack of national cadres of hydrologists in developing countries to undertake comprehensive water management investigations and measures. Hydrometeorologists are classified in three categories: (1) specialists with at least a university degree in engineering or appropriate science, (2) specialists trained to a semi-professional technician level, and (3) specially trained observers, hydrometric assistants. Qualifications required at each level are enumerated, together with recommended curricula and programs for training each of the three classes of personnel. In addition, a number of proposals are suggested regarding the organization of training hydrometeorological experts of various levels for developing countries. The need for concerted action of all international organizations in the training of hydrometeorological staff is also briefly described. Publications of the World Meteorological Organization are listed. (BL)
