This paper outlines status of meteorological and climatological research at the start of the twenty-first century centred on 4 main topics. First, the paper will review the monitoring and measurement of surface parameters that directly affect the earth/atmosphere interactions. The next section deals with the measurement of radiation, together with aerosols that directly influence the radiation balance of the climate system. Hydrometeorological aspects are then addressed with the observation and retrieval of water vapour, rainfall and snowfall and, finally, observations of the state of the atmosphere and data assimilation into numerical weather prediction models are reviewed
