Brief presentation of the institution

The Royal Meteorological Institute of Belgium (RMI) is a scientific institute, engaged in meteorology and geophysics. It fulfils climatological and geophysical observations in favour of the safety of the general public. Moreover, the RMI caries out research in hydro-meteorology, climatology and geophysics, implementing multidisciplinary tools and methods in order to tackle complex problems of current concern. The Geophysical Centre of the RMI is located in the south of Belgium far from all electric and magnetic disturbances and was inaugurated in 1956. It deals particularly with the Earth's magnetic field and related phenomena, as well as with the magnetic property characterisation of natural and artificial materials.
