This is the introduction to a series of FAQ postings for the Usenet newsgroup
sci.geo.meteorology.  "FAQ" stands for Frequently Asked Questions:  these
postings are intended to answer the general question, "Where can I get <X>?"
for just about any value of <X> which has anything to do with meteorology.

This FAQ series grew out of a FAQ which was much smaller in scope, the
"Sources of Meteorological Data FAQ" which identified Internet and
other sources of meteorological data for both the hobbyist and the
researcher.  The bulk of this FAQ series is still about data sources,
but a lot of other information has been added.

The following postings comprise the FAQ series:
