Challenges in the Transition from Conventional to Automatic Meteorological Observing Networks for Long-term Climate Records
Guidelines for managing changes in climate observation programmes, with a set of recommended practices by which such changes can be managed, have already been published (WMO, 2007). This guidance note will focus on those AWSs likely to form part of long-term climate records. These will normally be owned by NMHSs or associated agencies, or sometimes by third parties (such as aviation, agriculture or road transport agencies) under standards endorsed by the NMHSs. Experience shows that private AWSs can be useful for some climate purposes (such as providing information on individual local-scale extreme events) but rarely have the length of record, accuracy or exposure standards, or long-term stability of site and instrumentation, to have much value for monitoring on timescales of a decade or longer.

Her talk is parsed into four sections. Section 1 summarizes ongoing research. Section 2 discusses the sharing of hydro-climate information. Section 3 moves into the future and describes the process of planning, executing, and evaluation a climate impacts study. Section 4 provides concluding thoughts from Dr. Vano and includes three questions (and answers) from the HIUCC course attendees.

Format: Digital (Standard Copyright)This case-study lesson provides an opportunity to apply the information in the ASMET lesson “Satellite-Derived Climatology Products for Monitoring Convection Over West and Central Africa” to a case that occurred over West and Central Africa in June 2014. It demonstrates how to integrate climatology information with satellite, global instability indices (GII), and NWP data when convection is forecast to occur.
PermalinkThis lesson offers users of climate information a demonstration of the utility of the Local Climate Analysis Tool (LCAT) for water resources applications. The training follows a NOAA Climate Resilience Toolkit case study in Tampa, Florida, and illustrates how LCAT analyses can be used to inform the steps to climate resilience outlined in the Toolkit. This text-based, interactive lesson will be accessible to anyone using LCAT for water resources decision-making, though will be most useful to those with some familiarity with drought/water resources questions and information needs. Some backgroun ...
PermalinkLong-term management of critical water resources infrastructure needs to incorporate projected changes to environmental conditions. Reservoirs form the heart of water resource assets. Long-range plans for the repair, replacement, maintenance and renovation of these facilities depend on accurate projections of reservoir pool elevations. Environmental conditions, in turn, dictate the magnitude and timing of inflows and outflows from reservoirs, and thus the resulting water surface elevation. This lesson explores the factors that affect reservoir pool elevation and the considerations and challeng ...
PermalinkInstitute of Biometeorology (IBIMET) ; World Meteorological Organization (WMO) - CNR-National Research Council"Seasonal Forecast Course Package T.O.P." is a set of online resources whose goal is to enhance knowledge in the theory of seasonal forecasting and operational use of seasonal climate forecasts. The course package has two audiences. The first is training institutions, to facilitate development of additional training courses. The materials and documentations here collected represent the building blocks of a course based on validated contents and user needs. It can also be used by national hydro-meteorological service staff members who wish to improve their climate services competencies or to sp ...
PermalinkThe atlas is based on the climate datasets provided by the CM SAF. It consists of maps providing climatological information of different meteorological parameters. These include:
-general climatic characteristics of meteorological parameters over Europe and Latvia;
-information on satellite data suitable for climatological studies, particularly datasets provided by the CM SAF;
-an example of the strengths and weaknesses of satellite data for climate applications;
-instructions for creating a satellite climatology atlas and beginning to work with satellite da ...
PermalinkThe focus of this document is on observations at surface meteorological observing stations. However, many of the principles will also be valid for other forms of observations, including upper-air observations and datasets based on mobile or remotely sensed platforms (for example, satellites, radar or drifting buoys). In particular, as many key remotely sensed datasets begin in the 1970s, it is recommended that, where feasible, the current climatological standard normal period (1981–2010 at the time of writing) be used for these datasets to allow comparison among different data forms on a consi ...
PermalinkTransforming our world: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development (Agenda 2030) is a plan of action for people, the planet and prosperity, which seeks to strengthen universal peace in greater freedom. The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) identified under Agenda 2030 provide a universal, transformative and integrated ambition that will provide an aligned pathway for the activities of UN Members, international organizations within and beyond the UN system, as well as the entire sphere of entities and individuals having a stake in sustainable development.
PermalinkThe goal of this Exemplar is to illustrate how the development and application of targeted climate products and services through the Global Framework for Climate Services (GFCS) can advance efforts to better integrate climate information into the planning and operations of the energy sector. This will enable improved sustainability, resilience and efficiency of energy systems under ever-changing weather and climate conditions.
PermalinkThe global community is rapidly putting in place measures to protect societies from adverse socioeconomic and environmental impacts caused by extreme weather-, climate- and water-related events, and also to take maximum advantage of any positive benefits of these changes that may exist. However, many projects are being undertaken in isolation, in the absence of mechanisms for alignment of the diverse efforts being made at project level, and without conforming to relevant international standards. This can result in duplication of efforts, which may prove unsustainable or ineffective in the long ...
PermalinkКлиматическое обслуживание обладает потенциалом, чтобы вносить вклад в обеспечение безопасности человека путем повышения способности человека увеличивать социальные выгоды и уменьшать потери, связанные с климатом. По мере продолжающегося изменения природных климатических характеристик обществу потребуется более своевременное и надежное климатическое обслуживание, которое поможет ему понять связанные с климатом риски и научит извлекать выгоду из соответствующих возможностей.
