2 E-SURFMAR VOS Activities Scope of presentation What is E-SURFMAR and how does it work How well are we performing and how good is our VOS data Which operational tools do we use to maintain our VOS fleets What are our plans for automation What’s in the pipeline How can we work together in the future

3 GIE/EIG EUMETNET, Registered Number 0818.801.249 - RPM Bruxelles US PMO Meeting - August 2014 EUMETNET is a grouping of 31 European National Meteorological Services EUMETNET's mission statement is: "To help its Members to develop and share their individual and joint capabilities through cooperation programmes that enable enhanced networking, interoperability, optimisation and integration within Europe; and also to enable collective representation with European bodies in order that these capabilities can be exploited effectively."

4 GIE/EIG EUMETNET, Registered Number 0818.801.249 - RPM Bruxelles US PMO Meeting - August 2014 E-SURFMAR (Surface Marine Observation Programme) E-SURFMAR is an “optional” EUMETNET programme Its main objectives are to coordinate, optimise and progressively integrate European activities for surface observations over the sea in support of Numerical Weather Predictions. The current Programme Manager is Pierre Blouch from Météo-France.

8 GIE/EIG EUMETNET, Registered Number 0818.801.249 - RPM Bruxelles US PMO Meeting - August 2014 E-SURFMAR Requirements Implement an optimum overall surface marine network design, and to regularly revise it according to data user's requirements. –The first design study (2004) led to an operational network of about 100 drifting buoys measuring air pressure and sea surface temperature in the North Atlantic Financial and technical support for the operation of 4 moored buoys as a baseline for the calibration and the validation of satellite-derived wind and wave observations. Support for VOS activities in order to better coordinate and harmonise practices. This support includes compensation observations and communications. Operation of Shipborne Automated Weather Stations (S-AWS) in support of the network design and, in parallel, the automation of the observation aboard ships through the development of such stations.

9 GIE/EIG EUMETNET, Registered Number 0818.801.249 - RPM Bruxelles US PMO Meeting - August 2014 E-SURFMAR Tasks Ordering/Delivery/Deployment of drifting buoys Managing participating members compensations Evaluate and implement cost effective communication systems for S-AWS, VOS and buoys. Install/operate S-AWS aboard E-ASAP ships. Facilitate technical information exchange Tendering for EUCAWS with common specifications. Monitoring the availability, timeliness and quality of the data and resolving problems. Working closely with JCOMM Data Buoy Cooperation Panel (DBCP) and Ship Observations Team (SOT).

12 GIE/EIG EUMETNET, Registered Number 0818.801.249 - RPM Bruxelles US PMO Meeting - August 2014 VOS and S-AWS Targets & Performance (2014-Q1) Decreasing performance ? Needs investigation Still too high despite efforts (QC feedbacks) Difficult to reach this target To be reached in 2017

13 GIE/EIG EUMETNET, Registered Number 0818.801.249 - RPM Bruxelles US PMO Meeting - August 2014 Target for 2013-2017: 250 obs/day E-SURFMAR Conventional VOS  Operated by E-SURFMAR participants (national fleets)

14 GIE/EIG EUMETNET, Registered Number 0818.801.249 - RPM Bruxelles US PMO Meeting - August 2014 Target for 2013-2017:1,600 obs./day (Excluding 400 obs./day provided by E-SURFMAR S-AWS ) E-SURFMAR Shipborne AWS  graph includes S-AWS operated by participants (national fleets) and by the programme (E-SURFMAR fleet)

15 GIE/EIG EUMETNET, Registered Number 0818.801.249 - RPM Bruxelles US PMO Meeting - August 2014 E-SURFMAR Drifting Buoys Number of operating buoys close to the target of 100 The problem of short lifetimes has been fixed at Metocean Thanks to Iridium, more than 90% of the observations are now distributed onto the GTS within 50 minutes after the obs. time Average number of observations received every day from the drifting buoys Lifetime problems

20 GIE/EIG EUMETNET, Registered Number 0818.801.249 - RPM Bruxelles US PMO Meeting - August 2014 E-SURFMAR - Metadata An online database was developed within E-SURFMAR to manage VOS metadata (WMO Pub47 format).online databaseVOS metadata It contains almost all VOS metadata available in the world (permanently updated) and links to monitoring and performance assessments http://surfmar.meteo.fr/doc/vosmetadata_v6/

21 GIE/EIG EUMETNET, Registered Number 0818.801.249 - RPM Bruxelles US PMO Meeting - August 2014J.Pierre KERSERHO, E- SURFMAR METEO-FRANCE Inspection reports Ability to directly fill up the inspection reports online added. (report is prepared with metadata available in the database already filled in). Done for VOSP001 at present only for the moment. ZZ fleet (Ancillary VOS) Authorized users can create VOS records under ZZ country. Inclusion of Offshore Platforms Rigs and platforms can now also be added using vsslM=90 (manned) or 95 (AWS) AIS Locations : link configurable and available for each VOS Link to marinetraffic.com position and tracks when MMSI number added Monitoring reports by email Ability to automatically send monitoring reports by email A facility to request a report by email is also being developed e.g. By mailing vos- monitoring@shom.fr and specifying the call sign in the email subject line [e.g. [obs report] : Call_Sign] you may automatically receive an Observations Monitoring Report for a given SHIP :vos- monitoring@shom.fr E-SURFMAR – Metadata Database – recent/planned developments

Application will ask for login and password. Window will close automatically with the mouse position  Access Observation Counters and Last Positions Map Possibility to count observation counters for listed VOS or to display the map their latest positions. E.g. if the contact form is filled up with company names, the user may do a query for a given company. The observation counters will provide the numbers of observations for this company and the last positions for its VOS.  More exported files from ESURFMAR VOS DATABASE Daily export of VOSClim metadata available at ftp://esurfmar.meteo.fr/pub/Pub47ftp://esurfmar.meteo.fr/pub/Pub47
