WMO: Fourth Workshop on the Impact of Various Observing Systems on Numerical Weather Prediction
21 May 2008: The Fourth WMO Workshop on the Impact of Various Observing Systems on Numerical Weather Prediction took place in Geneva, Switzerland, from 19-21 May 2008. Workshop participants addressed a range of topics regarding global forecast impact studies, regional aspects of impact studies, and sensitivity, impact assessment techniques, and observation network design studies, as well as discussed workshop conclusions and recommendations.
The workshop was organized under the auspices of the Commission for Basic System of the WMO World Weather Watch Programme with a support of the WMO Hemispheric Observing System Research and Predictability Experiment (THORPEX) Programme. A workshop report, which will include all papers submitted by the participants, is planned to be produced and published as a WMO Technical Report.
