OBSERVATIONS – CURRENT ACTIVITIES
This Programme’s objectives are to provide a European platform to exchange expertise on weather radar issues and to develop, generate and distribute high-quality pan-European radar composite products.
The E-AMDAR Programme carries out measurements of high quality upper air meteorological variables from aircraft.
The main aims of the Observations Programme Management are to design and coordinate the evolution of the EUMETNET Composite Observing System (EUCOS) to be optimised on a European scale.
The E-PROFIILE Programme manages the European network of radar wind profilers and automatic lidars and ceilometers for the monitoring of vertical profiles of wind and aerosoles including volcanic ash.
The E-SURFMAR Programme coordinates, optimises and progressively integrates European activities for surface marine observations.
The objective of the EUMETNET-ASAP (E-ASAP) Operational Service is to coordinate and optimise weather balloon observations over data sparse ocean regions.
