Summary ØMost of the observational systems are remotely monitored and controled by central system and whole data are gathered to the central system. ØQC / QA is important and JMA combines several method to keep data quality. ØAWS improved to output maximum instantaneous wind speed. ØAll radiosonde systems are upgraded to GPS sonde. JMA operates 8 ABL, HGS and 8 normal radiosonde system. ØJMA has stably operated 31 WPR for 10 years. JMA is now preparing WPR guidance material as IOM. ØGPS precipitable water data are routinely used in NWP. Ø 16 radars out of 20 radars are upgraded to Doppler radar. Doppler velocity data are utilized in NWP and monitoring tornadoes. Radar data are also utilized for lightning and tornado nowcasting.
