Activities The Department of Meteorology remained functioning under the Head of State’s Office until November 1993. After that, through the government’s restructuring Act, the Ministry of Planning, Human Resources and Environment was created and the Met. Department was brought under that Ministry. In addition, physical oceanography and seismology was included as areas of responsibility of the Department. Again, in November 1998, the Department became an office reporting to the newly formed Ministry of Home Affairs, Housing and Environment.
