Abstract : The history and role of the Main Geophysical Observatory in the calibration of meteorological instruments is reviewed, with some emphasis on the Observatory's role in maintaining and using the USSR's meteorological instrument standards. Two trends prevail in the improvement of instrument calibration: the first is the improvement of calibration accuracy and the other is the development of an effective calibration method with an eye to the man-hours involved while still trying to maintain the necessary accuracy.
