EC-LVIII 2006 ISS – (F) WIS
EC-LVIII 2006 ISS – WIS
EC-LVIII 2006 ISS - WIS Where we are in this project? Considerable efforts were made in developing the technical and operational specifications of the WIS GISCs and DCPCs, including an ad-hoc GISC & DCPC developers meeting (Langen, Germany, 29 -31 March 2006). (DWD, ECMWF, EUMETSAT, KMA, Météo. France, NCAR, ROSHYDROMET and JCOMM Centre Obninsk, UKMet. Office)
EC-LVIII 2006 ISS - WIS Where we are in this project? An initial implementation of some WIS functions could be achieved by the end of 2006 in a semioperational mode. WIS success depends upon pilot projects.

EC-LVIII 2006 ISS - TECO-WIS will be held in association with the extraordinary session of CBS – 2006, November.
EC-LVIII 2006 WIS The WIS position and functions in the general WMO infrastructure should be precisely defined for better understanding and implementation by the Member countries.
EC-LVIII 2006 ISS activity ØGTS support to the Exchange of Multi. Hazard Early Warning, including Tsunami Warnings
EC-LVIII 2006 ISS - Migration to Table Driven Code Forms Only small number of countries had developed or were currently developing a national plan for the migration to Table Driven Code Forms (TDCF).
EC-LVIII 2006 DPFS - Data-Processing & Forecasting System Ensemble Prediction Systems (EPS) § 14 GDPFS centers are running EPS and the products continue to be of considerable interest as they are a realization of quantifying uncertainty in the numerical simulations and predictions of the atmosphere. § “Guidelines on using information from EPS in combination with single higher resolution NWP forecasts” (February 2006) was developed to assist meteorological users of EPS products.
EC-LVIII 2006 DPFS - Data-Processing & Forecasting System Long-range Forecasting (LRF) § 14 LRF producers § The Lead Centre for Standard Verification System for LRF (SVSLRF) stated that the Web site is operational and the exchange of verification data has started § The WMO Secretariat recently sent a letter to the PRs of the concerned countries inviting them to consider, as recommended by CBS-XIII, producing a document for the next session of CBS to seek recognition as an official Global Producing Centre (GPC) of LRF and to consider submitting their centre’s verification results to the Lead Centre for SVSLRF.
EC-LVIII 2006 DPFS - Data-Processing & Forecasting System Severe Weather Forecasting Demonstration Project (SWFDP) § SWFDP is being organized as a regional project whose scope is to explore and test the usefulness of the products that are currently available from NWP centres, or products which could be made available from current systems, with the goal to improving severe weather forecasting services in countries where sophisticated model outputs are not currently used. § CBS, through the Project Steering Committee, decided to implement in 2006 the first SWFDP regional sub-project in south-eastern Africa.

EC-LVIII 2006 DPFS - Data-Processing & Forecasting System Nuclear Emergency Response Activities (ERA) The Coordination Group on Nuclear ERA reviewed the status of implementation of the operational arrangements that involve the WMO RSMCs with activity specialization in nuclear environmental emergency response (Beijing, Tokyo, Obninsk, Montréal, Washington, Melbourne, Exeter, Toulouse), and the RTH Offenbach for operational notification via the GTS. The review was based on the results of the international Conv. Ex-3 exercise (May, 2005) organized by the Inter-Agency Committee on Response to Nuclear Accidents, led by IAEA, as well as in the context of the IAEA-adopted International Action Plan for Strengthening the International Preparedness and Response System for Nuclear and Radiological Emergencies (2004 -2009).
EC-LVIII 2006 DPFS - Data-Processing & Forecasting System Non-Nuclear Emergency Response Activities The meeting of the CBS ET on Modelling of Atmospheric Transport for non-Nuclear Emergency Response was held in Melbourne, Australia, 19 to 23 September 2005. Because of the predominately “localized” nature of environmental emergencies related to chemical incidents (spills or releases), the strategy and action plan should be concentrated on developing the necessary capabilities at the NMHSs. However, in the case of smoke from large fires, a regionalized approach would be appropriate, where RSMCs could provide emergency guidance and support to NHMSs and at the same time build capacity at the national level. A draft action plan was developed.
PWS EC-LVIII 2006 Major current activities Capacity building and transfer of technology Natural disaster mitigation and public response to warnings; cross-border warnings exchange Relationships with the media, emergency management Application of new technology in PWS product development, design and service delivery Verification, service assessment and quality management Enhancement of NMS visibility and status
EC-LVIII 2006 PWS OPAG on PWS had carried out an extensive review of the Programme, its functions and strategies. It had re-defined these in view of the emerging trends and needs in service provision and delivery.

EC-LVIII 2006 CBS involvement to WMO cross cutting programmes and activities Ø DPM, Ø Quality Management System, Ø WMO Space Programme, Ø Climate study and GCOS-related activities, Ø GEO/GEOSS process, Ø THORPEX, Ø International Polar Year Ø……
EC-LVIII 2006 GEOSS Many GEO targets are relevant to CBS and many CBS activities are relevant to GEO. CBS proposes that the GEO Work Plan focus on two specific activities: Øassessing the current data transfer & dissemination requirements and systems in all SBA; Øpreparing a detailed high level description of what new system would be and would do.
EC-LVIII 2006 DPM Over its life time, CBS has assembled a significant degree of competence and developed a broad network of expertise in matters closely related to DPM within its OPAG structure. It will be important to ensure that the execution of the Implementation Plan for DPM and the work of CBS in this area, can proceed in a complementary fashion, so that there is no un-necessary duplication of effort and/or resources.
EC-LVIII 2006 Integration of the WMO Observing System Most of the WMO sponsored programmes are interconnected/ WMO observing Systems should be developed into Integrated Observing System WWW GOS would serve as an infrastructure for integrated observing system
EC-LVIII 2006 WWW visibility as a core infrastructure element for most WMO programmes must be improved.
