More Information (under review)

Until recent years all surface observing has been performed manually; the observer reads the instruments, makes visual estimates of visibility, cloud, present weather and the state of ground, records the observation on paper, and, if the station produces SYNOP and NCM messages, encodes the report and transmits it.
