WMO 6th WS on the Impact of Observing Systems on NWP

Event date(s): Tuesday 10th May 2016  –  Friday 13th May 2016

Location: Shanghai, China

WMO 6th Workshop on the Impact of Various Observing Systems on NWP - 1st announcement

The WMO 6th Workshop on the Impact of Various Observing Systems on Numerical Weather Prediction will be organised by the Inter Programme Expert Team on the Observing System Design and Evolution (IPET‐OSDE) and will be hosted by the China Meteorological Administration at the headquarters of the Shanghai Meteorological Service in Shanghai, China, May 10‐13 2016.

At the WMO 6th Impact Workshop, the results presented will be reviewed in plenary discussion sessions and a consensus view will be formed. Conclusions to help guide the design and evolution of components of the WIGOS for NWP will be drawn. This extends from short to medium and longerrange forecasting. The impact of various observing systems on the analysis of the climate is also relevant. The workshop will be organised in the following sessions:

  • Session 1: Global forecast impact studies
  • Session 2: Regional forecast impact studies
  • Session 3: Specific scientific areas (including network design)
  • Session 4: Workshop discussions and conclusions.

Participants are expected from all the major NWP centres that are active in the area of impact studies. The workshop will be conducted in English. As for the previous five workshops, it is planned to produce a workshop report which will be published as a WMO Technical Report and will include the presentations submitted by the participants.

Those who are interested in contributing to this workshop are asked to submit a short abstract and request an invitation from the organisers by submitting your abstract and title to the scientific organising committee (SOC) via email to Dr. Lars Peter Riishojgaard (WMO Secretariat) and Dr. Erik Andersson (ECMWF), by 15 November 2015.
