On 20 May is World Metrology Day
The measurement science community is celebrating World Metrology Day on 20 May 2019.
This year the event is dedicated to 'The International System of Units - Fundamentally Better'.
In November 2018 the General Conference on Weights and Measures took a historic vote to make the SI units entirely determined by constants of nature.
On this year's World Metrology Day that vote - and the decades of hard work that contributed to it - become reality.
Take a look at EURAMET guidelines on calibrations
EURAMET has published over 20 calibration guidelines to improve harmonisation in the calibration of measuring instruments. This includes guides in the fields of electricity and magnetism, flow, length, mass and related quantities and thermometry.
The latest publication is a revised version of Calibration Guideline No. 19 'Guidelines on the Determination of Uncertainty in Gravimetric Volume Calibration'. Find them all here >>

The ocean is a key component in the global climate system. It is a sink for carbon dioxide and increasing ocean temperatures lead to rising sea-levels. The characterisation of the status of the oceans and their circulation requires world-wide monitoring of a wide variety of ...
Earth observation agencies worldwide are moving towards a more coordinated approach to data gathering. With the increased importance of the data they provide, they are demanding improved measurement accuracy of the instrumentation on board Earth observation satellites. Satel...
