What is the National Weather Service

The National Meteorological Service is an organization that seeks to provide meteorological information and forecasts, climate prospects and alerts in its area of ​​concern, based on continuous monitoring of the atmosphere and scientific knowledge.

The organization, of a scientific-technical nature, had its origin in Law No. 559, sanctioned by the Honorable Congress of the Nation on October 4, 1872.

At the request and under the Presidency of Mr. Domingo Faustino Sarmiento, the Argentine Meteorological Office (OMA) was created, reporting to the Ministry of Justice, Worship and Public Instruction.

Subsequently, as the SMN explains, in the course of its institutional life, this Organization became dependent on the following ministries and secretariats of the State:

By Law No. 3727 on the Organization of Ministries, the OMA was transferred to the Ministry of Agriculture of the Nation. In July 1924, the Office was called the Meteorological Directorate, and in September 1927, the Meteorological Directorate. By Law No. 12252 of September 28, 1935, the OMA, maintaining its dependence on the Ministry of Agriculture, became the Directorate of Meteorology, Geophysics and Hydrology. In accordance with the terms of Decree No. 10,131 of May 5, 1945, on the Based on that Directorate, the National Meteorological Service (SMN) was created, dependent on the Secretariat of Aeronautics. On January 29, 1947, Law No. 12,945 of the Honorable Congress of the Nation established that it should continue in force with the force of law, Decree No. 10131/45, creating the SMN. By Decree No. 5197 dated March 9, 1950, the SMN became dependent on the Ministry of Technical Affairs of the Nation. Decree No. 12248 dated June 22 of 1954, repealed the previous one (No. 5197/50) and ordered that the SMN became dependent again on the Ministry of Agriculture and Livestock of the Nation. Decree No. 4686 of May 7, 1957, established that the SMN ceased to belong to the Ministry of Agriculture and Livestock and became dependent on the Ministry of Aeronautics of the Nation. Finally, by Decree No. 1689 dated November 22, 2006, as of January 1, 2007, the SMN was transferred to the scope of the current Secretariat of Science, Technology and Production of the Ministry of Defense of the Nation.
