NEW: Provisional 2023 edition of the Guide to Operational Weather Radar Best Practices
The Guide to Operational Weather Radar Best Practices has been developed by the INFCOM Joint Expert Team on Operational Weather Radars (JET-OWR) with the aim to become an important source of guidance material on various aspects of the operational weather radar. The guide provides complementary and supportive guidance on the weather radar-related matters already available in the Guide to Instruments and Methods of Observation (WMO-No. 8) and in the Guide to WIGOS (WMO-No. 1165).
During the Members’ review process, comments have been received from: China, France, Germany, Hong Kong (China), Japan, Philippines, and one member of HMEI. The comments have been addressed by the INFCOM/SC-MINT/Editorial Board and JET-OWR. Those simple, editorial comments have already been incorporated in the text of the provisional edition and are displayed in a track-change mode. More complex comments have been well noted and will be addressed by the relevant expert groups in the next intersessional period.
The text of the Provisional 2023 Edition is accessbile in the table below. It is submitted to the second session of the Commission for Observation, Infrastructure and Information Systems (INFCOM-2) for approval.
Notes: Remaining volumes (IV, V, VI and VIII) are still under development.
