A quirky story this week from our Maritime Connectivity team who were busy at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona last week. Get In Touch if you’d like to hear about our global maritime cellular communications services - and our new project which is tracking the journeys of vessels to which we provide connectivity - and monitoring which of our cellular and satellite networks they connect to, when and for how long, and the data capacity used.
According to this piece on the Maritime Professionals website, The UK’s Met Office is searching for new names for the next round of storms. The naming of storms is a new phenomenon in “order to help the media and the public communicate more effectively about the impacts of severe weather events”.
Names are selected for each letter of the alphabet, except for Q, U, X, Y and Z and people can submit as many suggestions as they choose and also have the option of adding a reason for their suggestion to help it in consideration.
To submit your suggestion please visit https://www.metoffice.gov.uk/forms/name-our-storms-call-for-names
