Caption: Stevenson screen at an airport, with an aircraft in the background. The wooden slats of this screen shield thermometers and other equipment from rain and direct sunlight, while still allowing air to circulate. Weather forecasts at airports allow aircraft to adapt to changing weather conditions. This equipment is being operated by the Met Office, the UK's national weather monitoring and forecasting service. Photographed at Heathrow Airport, UK.
