YAREN, Nauru (August 26, 1998 - Radio Australia)---A sophisticated weather station is being established on the Micronesian island of Nauru to gather information for use in predicting long-term global weather changes.

The facility, to be completed by the end of October, has been funded by the United States government through its Atmospheric Radiation Measurement Program.

A U.S. technical team will go to Nauru later this year to train local people to operate the scientific instruments involved in the project.

The new weather station is the second in the atmospheric radiation and cloud research project. The first was installed at Manus Island in northern Papua New Guinea.
