5 Atmospheric Observations (cont.) AMDAR: 12th AMDAR Panel meting (Toulouse, November 2009) regarding the further promotion of AMDAR in the Region:A new AMDAR Pilot Project encompassing areas of the South-West Pacific.Recently development of AMDAR water vapor sensor currently under test in the USA and EuropeThe Association:Encourage members to extend AMDAR coverageSupport the AMDAR Pilot Project
6 ATMOSPHERIC - AMDAR obs. About 250,000 AMDAR observations per day disseminated on the GTSThe availability of AMDAR profiles in data sparse regions of Southern Africa, Eastern Europe, parts of the Russian Federation, South and East Asia and South America have significantly increased over the past few years.12th AMDAR Panel meeting , a new AMDAR Pilot Project encompass areas of South-West Pacific, RA V encourage Members to support the project.

15 RA V Fifteenth Session, Bali, INDONIESIA, 30 April to 6 May 2010 Challenges: Climate Variability and Change, increasing society needs for improved services: GFCSEl NiñoHot & cold spellsDroughtsRiver basin floodingTropical cyclonesHeavy precipitations(rain or snow)Storm surgesIce StormsStorm (winds)This chart shows the major hazards, increasing in areal coverage along the vertical direction, and in temporal coverage across the horizontal.There are very few weather-related hazards that don’t affect any mountain cities. Well-established communities have built up their infrastructures and prospered within a general pattern of local climate to which they have adapted. However, meteorological and hydrological events with intensities outside that general pattern can cause catastrophic failures of environmental, economic and social systems. A few examples include:** Strong winds that impose exceptional loading (or pressure) on buildings and power transmission towers, causing structural failure;** Heavy rainfall that leads to flooding, accompanied by erosion that undermines structures and inundation that takes lives, destroys crops, drowns stock, contaminates fresh-water supplies and isolates communities;** Prolonged high temperatures and dry periods, leading to drought with its associated erosion, loss of crops and ground cover, and loss of life;** Heavy snowfall and ice loading that can lead to broken power and other overhead cables, and isolation of communities.Major atmosphere-ocean coupled patterns such as the El Niño phenomenon in the region of the tropical Pacific Ocean, and the North Atlantic Oscillation, influence the distribution of climatic hazards. The associated large scale variations in the oceans force changes in the atmosphere above, which affect the wind flow in the upper atmosphere. The effects are carried far from the source region by the modified large-scale circulation of the atmosphere, interacting with smaller scale influences such as the shapes and orientations of major mountain chains, resulting in changes in the normal weather patterns.Dust stormsWildland fires& hazeHail&LightningMud & landslidesFlash floodsAvalanchesTornadoesRA V Fifteenth Session, Bali, INDONIESIA, 30 April to 6 May 2010

20 RA V Fifteenth Session, Bali, INDONIESIA, 30 April to 6 May 2010 WIGOS VisionWIGOS will establish an integrated, comprehensive and coordinated observing system to satisfy in a cost-effective and sustained manner the evolving observing requirements of WMO Members and enhance coordination with partners for the benefit of society.RA V Fifteenth Session, Bali, INDONIESIA, 30 April to 6 May 2010
21 What will WIGOS be? Integrated WMO Observing System: comprehensivesustainableto address obs. requirements of all WMO Programmes in a coordinated and cost-effective manner;Framework facilitating standardization and interoperability for improved:availabilityqualityutilizationaccess etc.of weather, climate & water informationComprehensive – by including all observations and products gathered from WMO observing systems required to meet the user needs and requirements.Achieving Standardization and Interoperability of existing observing systems with those systems that are newly implemented is one of the major challenges for establishing a cost efficient system of observing systemsData Utilization: there is an enormous amount of observational data but due to lack of data compatibility/inconsistency, lack of metadata, usage of those data for decisions-making tools and their assimilation in NWP is not satisfactory

26 WIGOS Development and Implementation Strategy (WDIS) Draft WDIS proposed by EC-WG/WIGOS-WIS with a view to presenting it to Cg-XVI;RAs and TCs are requested to incorporate WIGOS implementation activities into their operating plans and work programmes.RAs are requested to:develop their regional WIGOS implementation plans;coordinate WIGOS implementation activities;establish WIGOS-related Task Teams; andinitiate regionally focused WIGOS-WIS activities.3/28/2017
27 WDIS: WIGOS & WISWIGOS & WIS - a framework enabling the integration and optimized evolution of WMO observing and information systems, and WMO’s contribution to co-sponsored systems.Members’ support is critical to provide additional resources in the form of:contributions to the WIGOS Trust Fund andsecondment services to the Secretariatduring the WIGOS Implementation phase to ensure successful WIGOS implementation.3/28/2017
28 RA V Guidance for future development and implementation of WIGOS Strong support for the further development of WIGOS;Noted with appreciation the Regional Demonstration Project conducted by Australia; request new WIGOS WG collaborate with WIGOS DPRequest RA V relevant Regional WIGOS Working Bodies to develop the Regional WIGOS Implementation Plan, and include the relevant tasks and activities in their work plans, taking into consideration of Regional special requirements;Urged and encouraged Members participate actively in the WIGOS relevant activities (AMDAR, RMIC, GRUAN, etc)Underlined the importance of the active collaboration of Members and Regional Working Bodies.3/28/2017
29 WIGOS BenefitsEnable WMO Members to meet expanding national mandates which are calling for increasing coordination and integration to help them better respond to natural hazards, improve weather, water, climate and related environmental monitoring, and adapt to climate change and other environmental impacts;Enhance operational components of WMO Programmes, especially in Developing and LDCs;Ensure essential WMO support for the observational and information elements of the future GFCS;Contribute strongly to GOOS, GTOS, GCOS and GEOSS.3/28/2017
