Company Name:  MANILA OBSERVATORY

The MANILA OBSERVATORY (MO), is a scientific research institution  
established in 1865 by the Jesuit mission in the Philippines.  At that  
time, 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 Observatory  
finds itself addressing new challenges on the global concern for  
environment and sustainable development.  With a continuing focus on  
pre-disaster science that impacts directly on the well being of global  
society, MO undertakes research in the areas of climate change, air  
quality dynamics, and disaster risk reduction and management.
