Format: Digital (Free)PermalinkPermalinkPermalinkPermalinkPermalinkThis handbook is a guide to using satellite telecommunication systems and is provided as an attachment to the Guide to the WMO Information System (WMO-No. 1061). It is intended for scientists and managers who are considering using satellite communications to collect data from remote instrumentation located either on land or at sea. The handbook aims to provide an overview of the state of the market at the time of writing (April 2018) so that users can quickly identify which satellite services are appropriate for their needs. Since the market is evolving rapidly, an online version will be made ...PermalinkPermalinkIn 2015 governments adopted the Paris Agreement to tackle climate change (see below) and invited the IPCC to prepare a special report in 2018 to assess the impacts and related pathways of warming of 1.5ºC. This brief provides context and explanation of key concepts for policymakers, media and others about the Special Report on 1.5°C, scheduled to be published, subject to approval, by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) on 8 October 2018. This brief is produced prior to the release of the report and therefore does not contain results from the report itself.PermalinkThis report presents an updated summary of AMDAR data usage and the resulting impacts and benefits to meteorological forecasting and the aviation industry. It then provides a presentation of the environmental and climate applications and studies that also benefit from the use of AMDAR data, as a result, bringing benefits to the environment and wider society. These areas of societal benefits include weather, transportation, energy, disaster reduction, health, climate and agriculture.PermalinkWMO, 2018In order to be most beneficial, this review focuses exclusively on the scientific basis for precipitation enhancement. Hail suppression, fog dispersion or harvesting as well as subjects related to geoengineering were, thus, out of scope for this current assessment. In addition, to provide the most useful information, the report focuses on the two cloud types most seeded in the past: winter orographic cloud systems and convective cloud systems. The review is structured in five thematic chaptersPermalinkA global survey of aeronautical meteorological service provision was conducted by the Commission for Aeronautical Meteorology (CAeM) between November 2016 and February 2017.
The primary objective of the survey was to establish a comprehensive, consolidated global view on the existing institutional arrangements for the provision of meteorological services to international air navigation, particularly at a national level, taking into account the supporting ICAO and WMO regulatory frameworks.PermalinkMammatus clouds over his house in Germantown, MDPermalinkThis meeting was a particularly important one for the expert team, being the first opportunity to openly and formally discuss the possible future collaboration between WMO and the International Air Transport Association (IATA) on the operation of the AMDAR programme. While the discussion raised a number of issues to be subsequently addressed, the team welcomed and fully endorsed the establishment of the IATA-WMO Working Arrangement that had been approved by the 69th session of the WMO Executive Council and agreed to undertake to work with IATA on the development of the proposed Concept of Oper ...PermalinkPermalinkThe First Session of the Commission for Instruments and Methods of Observations (CIMO), Inter-Programme Expert Team on Operational Weather Radars (IPET-OWR) was held over 13 to 16 March, 2017, at the Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA) headquarters in Tokyo, Japan. The session was kindly hosted by JMA and generously supported by Japan. The meeting was opened by the Director-General of the Japan Meteorological Agency, Dr Toshihiko Hashida, who highlighted Japan’s ongoing engagement in international operational weather radar activities, collaboration and capacity development. The session was chair ...PermalinkThe Roadmap is first and foremost a document that can be used by both WMO Members, partners and users to understand how NMHSs in partnership with other agencies contribute to increasing the resilience of communities, nations, regions, and the world under the above-mentioned frameworks, through a coordinated WMO-wide plan of action on DRR. It is hoped that this Roadmap will guide the Organization, in particular the NMHSs as well as key partners, in the development of its strategic and operating plans that fully take into account the contributions of the WMO community to all components and phase ...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 current survey conducted from 2016 to 2017 focused on Human Resource Status of NMHSs, particularly as relates to staff situation by age bracket, gender, and professionals, together with training expectations in 2017, training priority areas, and status of the strategic plans of NMHSs. The report is presented in three chapters. The first chapter provides an introduction and some major findings of the survey. The second chapter provides the details of the results of the survey and the third chapter provides conclusions. The results of this survey provide insight into the state of human resou ...PermalinkPermalinkPermalink
