Company Name:  Manila Observatory

Company Profile:  The Manila Observatory (MO) is a scientific research  
institution established in 1865, by the Jesuit mission in the  
Philippines.  By then, it was already engaged in pre-disaster science  
doing atmospheric studies, weather and earthquake observations until  
it became the official institution for weather forecasting and later,  
the Philippine Weather Bureau.  At the turn of the 21st century, the  
Institute finds itself addressing new challenges on the global concern  
for environment and development.  With a continuing focus on  
pre-disaster science that impacts directly on man?s well being, MO  
undertakes research in the areas of climate change, urban air quality,  
and disaster risk reduction and management.
