Initial formation and specialisation of meteorological personnel: detailed Syllabus examples - Supplementing chapters 3 and 4 of the Guidelines for the education and training of personnel in meteorology and operational hydrology, WMO-No. 258, Vol. I - Meteorology
Notes: This publication is supplementing Chapters 3 and 4 of the Guidelines for the Education and Training of Personnel in Meteorology and Operational Hydrology, WMO-No. 258, Vol. I Meteorology.

Format: Hard copyThe purpose of this Technical Document which is intended as a supplement to WMO/TD No. 1023, is to provide further elaboration of the concepts portrayed in WMO/TD No. 1023 and to re-enforce understanding through the provision of practical examples and models employed by various NMSs. Issues pertaining to some of the limitations of performance assessments are also discussed. Additionally, issues that require further investigation are highlighted. One broad area where further assessment focus is desirable is that of delivery of services as opposed to production of services
PermalinkThe purpose of this Technical Document is to provide guidelines which deal primarily with the provision of weather services to the general public through the Web. However, for completeness, weather services that are more appropriate to the specialized user are also mentioned.
PermalinkA major downside to the rapid developments in communications technology, however, is in the area of graphics.On the one hand, developments in computer technology enable production of a vast array of graphic material, and on the other hand, lack of formal training to produce expertise in communication graphics has resulted in a scarcity of individuals with design capabilities. These guidelines attempt to bridge this gap. They are intended to provide information and assistance on how to develop graphics to suit the unique needs and circumstances of NMSs. They identify relevant graphic design pri ...
PermalinkThe purpose of this Technical Document is to provide broader guidance on performance assessment of public weather services, with something of an emphasis on forecasts and warnings. An assessment programme can be seen in the context of a quality system, where it is important to ensure that the information gathered and processed is focussed on user requirements, to be used in making decisions and taking actions to improve performance, rather than just being gathered for the sake of it. In essence, the object of the exercise is to ensure a sustainable and cost-effective system delivering quality ...
PermalinkProvides advice to National Meteorological Services (particularly small services) envisaging the automation of all or some of their data-processing facilities or expanding automation. General guidelines are presented for decision-makers on what to automate and how to do so, including securing the necessary financial resources. Other aspects covered include system design, installation and maintenance and contractual and personnel considerations. Configuration examples are given.
PermalinkThis publication provides basic information relevant to the understanding and implementation of Resolution 40 (Cg-XII) - WMO policy and practice for the exchange of meteorological and related data and products including guidelines on relationships in commercial meteorological activities, which is reproduced in full therein.
PermalinkThis compendium covers the syllabuses for the specialized training of Class II and Class IV personnel in marine meteorology (see third edition of Guidelines for the education and training of personnel in meteorology and operational hydrology (WMO-No. 258)). As the title indicates, the compendium contains extensive notes, on which students and instructors are expected to enlarge. The compendium is concerned with the atmosphere over the oceanic regions of the globe and also with the uppermost layers of the sea. It begins with a survey of the geography and basic properties of the ocean and then f ...

PermalinkThe incorporation of climatological principles in urban design was seen by the conference to be vitally urgent and this publication contains 20 papers presenting examples and suggestions. The siting of new towns and certain hazardous industrial facilities are treated and general guidelines given for urban design in both hot and dry, and hot and humid climates.
PermalinkThis paper describes various methods which can be used for the quality control of meteorological data. A range of methods are covered, from very basic checks for correct coding, to time and areal consistency. Homogeneity of the data is dealt with separately.
