RWCs - Regional WIGOS Centres
RWCs play a critical role in advancing the implementation of WIGOS within their Region or subregion, providing regional coordination and technical support to Members.
The primary, mandatory functions of Regional WIGOS Centres are to support Members with the management of metadata in OSCAR/Surface and to assist with following up on quality issues identified via the WIGOS Data Quality Monitoring System. RWCs may also contribute to the coordination of regional projects and support regional capacity development.
By operating Regional WIGOS Centres WMO Members can make a valuable contribution to overall regional development.
