As scientific interest is more and more focusing on the regional cross-border implications of a possible climate change, routine monitoring of regional climate for whole Europe is becoming more and more important. The need for a more co-ordinated approach to the preparation of climate system monitoring information led to the idea to publish an annual regional climate monitoring Bulletin. The eleventh session of the WMO Regional Association VI (RA VI), which took place in Oslo in May 1994, approved the proposal.
