The current threats to the integrity of observational data collection and to free and unrestricted international exchange of meteorological data
are not entirely new.
'The AMDAR system utilises aircraft sensors to collect, process, format and transmit meteorological data
to ground stations,' Elmi said.
Heatwaves present greater challenges of forecasting than floods or unusual rainfall, but they are still not impossible to predict if the right models and meteorological data
The Rhtests, established by the Climate Research Centre of the Environment Ministry of Canada, can test and correct the time series of meteorological data
on year, month, and day scales.
The participants will be imparted knowledge to identify sites for meteorological and hydrological stations, carry out basic data analysis, find gaps, shifts and trends in hydro meteorological data
of a station and set up a flood forecasting model for further processing and calibration," he said.
Thus, it is expected that smartphones may be used to obtain more specific meteorological data
at a low cost, even if only for some basic weather variables.
The study was conducted by using Finite Volume Mesoscale Model (FVM) in which topography from GTOPO30, land-use from GLC 2000 and Meteorological data
from NCEP were used as an input to run the simulation.
"These information are based on track of typhoon "Nona" (international name "Melor"), current radar trends, and all available meteorological data
", PAGASA said.
