​​Summary (280 characters)
Attenuation data from commercial microwave links (CMLs) has proven to be a valuable source of rainfall information. Data access remains a challenge, though. Here we show the potential of CMLs and want to discuss pathways towards operational usage.

​​Summary (280 characters)
JMA started a pilot study to investigate the possibility of use of observation data from networks operated by private companies in JMA’s weather monitoring and forecasting operations.  The poster will present the drivers and method of the pilot study, highlighting the challenges in putting the necessary data quality assurance mechanism in place and in making data sharing mutually beneficial.

Problems and countermeasures of the meteorological data economy under the condition of big data as production factors
​Corresponding author

​​Summary (280 characters)
The patterns of production factors change with the characteristics of the times of economic development. With the development of the information economy, the information resources represented by big data are evolving towards a brand new form of factors of production. Weather services departments own a large number of meteorological data resources but have been unable to integrate them with social data resources. This paper attempts to discuss the promotion of the autonomous and orderly flow of factors, improvement of the efficiency of factor allocation, further stimulation of the creativity and market vitality of the whole society, and promotion of the quality of meteorological data with economic development and efficiency changes. The paper suggests gradually promote the sharing of meteorological data, enhance the value of social data resources, strengthen the integration and security protection of data resources, improve the price mechanism of factors mainly determined by the market, and enhance the emergency allocation capacity of factors.

​​Summary (280 characters)
Climate products and service supporting our climate resilience require free and open data. Data policies are often restricted or, predominantly, unknown. Hence, open policy in-situ based climate products and services have large uncertainty and gaps.

Delft-FEWS: Enabling ensemble, probabilistic and impact-based forecasting
​Corresponding author

​​Summary (280 characters)
Enabling ensemble, probabilistic or impact-based forecasting for flood forecasting, drought management and real-time control of reservoirs -Two decades of Delft-FEWS-    Over the past decades, enormous progress has been made by operational forecasting agencies worldwide in updating and improving their operational forecasting systems. This was achieved by bringing together huge amounts of data including meteorological data (ensembles and higher and higher resolution NWP forecasts) into their forecasting systems. In addition, modern open-platform forecasting systems like Delft-FEWS enable the forecasting agencies to run multiple hydrological models or even model chains in parallel.   However, their main purpose and objective still remain the same, namely to obtain the best estimate of the current state of their system and to produce reliable and accurate forecasts to inform the public in time. Increasingly the emphasis is on producing reliable probabilistic and impact-based forecasts which stimulates research into the areas of ensemble forecasting, hydrologic data assimilation, post-processing techniques and transforming hazard forecasts to impact or even risk-based forecasts.  The key success of Delft-FEWS is that it is centered around the data, data exchange and forecaster interaction with the data. The open architecture and configurability of Delft-FEWS makes it easy for an organization to connect their own data sets and models and set up the system to their own needs. The models known and available in an organization can directly be integrated, without any expensive development of new models.

​​Summary (280 characters)
WIS 2.0 is the next step in data sharing infrastructure for all of WMO. Based on Web technologies, it will enable data owners to control who can access their published resources and to clearly specify the license (terms and conditions) under which those resources can be used.
