Thunderstorm detection system. Met Office employee using cathode ray direction-finding equipment to locate thunderstorms. These are detected by the radio noise (sferics) produced by lightning in the atmosphere. This radio noise, and the direction it is coming from, are displayed on the cathode ray screen. The Met Office is the UK's national weather monitoring and forecasting service. Photographed in Bracknell, at the headquarters for the Met Office. These headquarters, constructed between 1959 and 1962, were located here until 2003.
