Happy New Year from Bengkulu and Happy Rain Coming!

After 2 weeks off from Bengkulu, I came back here again for continuing the radar and balloon observation. The situation was slightly changed from last month, it was dry and less rainfall last month but when I came here three days ago, the condition much more humid, cloudy, even rain like today. We just have rain with strong wind around 11 AM today.

During the observation at BMKG Fatmawati, young observer come here to study about rawinsonde launching, they are university students from Bengkulu University. One of the BMKG Staff teach them how to operate the system and launch the balloon, they look happy, enthusiasm, and eager to learn. They may become new scientist in the future!
