The Central Institution for Meteorology and Geodynamics (German: Zentralanstalt für Meteorologie und Geodynamik, ZAMG) is the national meteorological and geophysical service of Austria. It is a subordinate agency of the Austrian Federal Ministry for Science and Research. The ZAMG headquarters are located in Vienna, with regional offices in Salzburg, Innsbruck, Graz, and Klagenfurt. ZAMG was founded in 1851 and is the oldest weather service in the world. Its task is not only to operate monitoring networks and to conduct research in various fields, but also to make the results available to the public.
ZAMG has a long tradition of involving the general public in their research - whether it's observing nature, the weather or earthquakes, dating back as early as 1897. Their research is not only of scientific importance; it also presents a useful tool for agricultural purposes or anybody else who might be interested.
