(Click on image to download virtual poster)
​​Summary 
The severe events that impact countries in West Africa range from drought to heavy rains, storms and floods. Forecasting such severe weather to reduce the risk of hazards is one of the challenges faced by many NMHSs due to the gap of data observation, modelling capacities and trainings.  Every day, RSMC Dakar provides guidance products for the next five days on the SWFP-WA website to 15 NMHSs.   Global NWP graphical products by the global centres: Meteo-France, ECMWF, NOAA/NCEP, ECCC and UKMO. Products are provided in graphical form via Internet for rapid display and dissemination.  The support from global centres by providing data and products help RSMC Dakar to improve the quality of the guidance products issued to the NMHSs.

Title
The Global Cryosphere Watch data portal
​Corresponding author
Mathias Bavay

(Click on image to download virtual poster)
​​Summary
The Global Cryosphere Watch (GCW) is a project of the WMO which aims at delivering authoritative and usable cryospheric data to WMO members and to provide sustained monitoring of the cryosphere. It bridges the gap between the scientific and the operational meteorological services communities. Data are generally managed by research institutes which do not have the infrastructure, the resources, nor the mandate to enable data-level interoperability and to make data available broadly beyond the scope of specific projects. These valuable data then do not fit into standardized systems for broader data access and exchange and therefore have been until now unavailable for operational meteorological or climate applications at larger scale. GCW aims to bridge this gap with an inovative technical solution that has been implemented as a pilot. The NetCDF file format has been chosen alongside the convention for Climate and Forecast (CF) that standardizes variable names and units and the NetCDF Attribute Convention for Dataset Discovery that standardizes the search metadata. Since the input datasets come directly from research centers from around the world and have a wide variety of formats, an engine that can convert and standardize this data is required. This engine is the mature and flexible open source MeteoIO meteorological pre-processing library. The generated files are published by an OpenDAP server that allows a web portal to automatically harvest the metadata it needs, so the users are able to search for datasets matching specific criteria on their metadata and then download the data.

​​Summary 
A polar big data platform (http://poles.tpdc.ac.cn) in bilingual is comprehensively built up to meet the functions including archiving, curation, sharing, analysis, and visualization of data, based on advanced information technologies such as cloud storage, cloud computing and big data analysis. More than 2500 polar scientific datasets have been integrated into the platform, and an integrated CASEarth Poles model base based on the polar cryosphere model, water cycle model, ecosystem model, multi-layer climate model and socio-economic assessment model has been preliminarily constructed, online big data analysis method base as well.

The GAW World Data Centres for Aerosol and Reactive Gases: on the Way to Real-Time and FAIR Data Handling by Network Involvement
​Corresponding author
Markus Fiebig

​ ​
test_WMO_data_conference.jpg                       
(Click on image to download virtual poster)
​​Summary 
The GAW World Data Centres for Aerosol and Reactive Gases, WDCA and WDCRG, are hosted by the Norwegian Institute for Air Research (NILU) in NILU’s EBAS database for atmospheric constituents observed at surface stations. Together, the two WDCs cover 51 countries worldwide, over 200 stations, 260 variables; altogether over 50000 datasets.   Corresponding with WMO and GAW strategies, recent focuses include: 1) real-time (RT) data collection, production, and dissemination; 2) data FAIRness (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable) as defined by the FORCE11 initiative. Due to the GAW architecture building on voluntary contributions by WMO member countries, WDCA/WDCRG emphasise network collaboration to finance new developments. Facilitated by various EU-projects (EUSAAR, ACTRIS 1 & 2), WDCA/WDCRG have been offering RT data services for 6 variables, 55 (34) stations in 24 (18) countries (recent numbers in parenthesis) since 2010. Centralised data production ensures efficiency in costs and maintenance, implementing harmonised improvements across sites.   The EU project ENVRI-FAIR supports implementation of FAIRness: use of persistent identifiers (PIDs) for data products, use of standard interfaces for machine access to metadata and data, indexing data in discovery portals, defining and using common vocabulary, documenting data provenance, and use of licenses for data use. For all but the last aspect, technical solutions exist or are under development. The use of licenses for data poses the largest challenge since it requires clarification of data ownership. Many GAW datasets are contributed by non-NMHSes which are not covered by WMO resolution 40. In these cases, data ownership varies by country.
