In the past Meteorology was first introduced to Thailand by Royal Thai Navy.
They recognized the importance of meteorology for more advanced navigation.
After that, the Department was transferred from the Royal Thai Navy to the Office of the Prime Minister.
Awareness of both the increasing importance of the application of meteorology to various fields of human activity, particularly agriculture, water resources development, land transportation, shipping and aviation, and the increasing responsibilities of many Government units under the Office of the Prime Minister, resulted in the Meteorological Department being transferred from the jurisdiction of the Prime Minister to that of the Ministry of Transport and Communications on 1 October 1972.
