​​Summary (280 characters)
Identification of building-climatic norms and rules may be estimated as the project of important social-economical and financial effects. The problem urgency is preconditioned by the fact that the renewal of legal normative base has been taken place in Georgia. By joined action of Georgian government, UNDP (United Nations Development Program), also national and international funds the revision and adjustment with existed legislation of current technical norms and rules is conducting.   According existing legislation the above mentioned standards and norms that acted in former USSR have no legal power, and the Georgian analogs don’t exist in many cases. Hence the vacuum has been formed and the preparation of science based acts is necessary - for the creation of new normative base and provision of its adaptation with national legislation.   The urgency and novelty of problem is preconditioned by the fact that by the project results complex approach of scientific research will be achieved, identification of building –climatic normative implying climatic variations, where the important role is given to the following:  - Specification of significances of existed climatic parameters (because climatic norms are defined up to 1955 year and don’t consider climate change dynamics connected with the increasing of intensity of modern anthropogenic impact on environment);  -Complex influence of two and multidimensional climatic factors on building objects;  - New building-climatic zoning of Georgia (implying regional peculiarities of the state territory);  - Elaboration of safety norms against climate negative impact on the building objects and existing constructions.  Project results  will be revealed in strengthening of scientific potential Georgian  urban developing, particularly – the possibility to use specificated building-climatic norms at any step of projecting.

​​Summary (280 characters)
National Satellite Meteorological Center (NSMC) is one of the operational units of China Meteorological Administration, which is the operator of Chinese FengYun (FY) series polar-orbiting and geostationary meteorological satellites. NSMC is tasked to support nation-wide weather forecasts, climate research, and natural disaster monitoring with space-based EO data and derived products.  Satellite Data & IT. Support Division of NSMC is responsible to FengYun series and the third party satellite data management, long term preservation and service. NSMC preserves data from Chinese and foreign meteorological satellites since 1983, the daily archive data volume is increasing rapidly at 0.5GB in 1987 and 8000GB in 2019. By the end of 2019, NSMC has stored data volume up to 15PB from 25 satellites. Over the past 12 years, more than 80 thousands users have registered on the Fengyun satellite data service website. More than 5.4 PB satellites’ data has been delivered to domestic and international users in 2019.  FengYun Meteorological Satellites data are shared globally in real-time and open to global users for free. NSMC provides several ways for global community to get FengYun series meteorological satellite data. Users in FengYun Satellites direct broadcast service area with appropriate receiving equipment can directly receive real time data. The CMACast users can receive FengYun satellite data and product with DVB-S equipment in near real time. The full FengYun Satellite dataset will be available on NSMC satellite data service website in Chinese and English version, authorized users can search and download FengYun Satellite data after registration.

​​Summary (280 characters)
Finnish Meteorological Institute has implemented Open Data Portal to provide open meteorological time series and grid data. The portal provides weather observations, weather forecast and oceanographic forecast models data. The data is provided in European Union INSPIRE  directive harmonised forms and the portal meets INSPIRE requirements.  The Finnish Meteorological Institute is now building up experience of distributing large amounts of data using cloud services. Since 2017, the Hirlam weather forecasting model covering Europe have been provided in Amazon’s cloud services (AWS S3 Bucket). In 2019, global SILAM atmospheric composition and air quality forecast with unprecedented spatial resolution of 0.2 x 0.2 degree and hourly time step were added to the program. It is updated daily and spans over 5 days forwards. During 2020, Finnish Meteorological Institute is planning to add radar data including both archive and real-time radar data to the program.    The objective of the data distribution in the cloud is to increase the utility and effective use of weather and climate data. The data is licenced with The Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International license (CC BY 4.0). That is, the users may freely use, distribute and modify the data presuming that the original producer is attributed. While the service is particularly practical for anyone processing the data in the cloud, AWS Public Dataset program provides a great channel to distribute and consume the data for all users.

​​Summary 
HYDROLARE's activities in recent years and its main results are considered, including the collection, analysis, processing and downloading of new data into the database, the development of the technological complex, including the website, and the expansion of information. The results of the development of a methodology for correcting satellite observations of lake water levels using in-situ data in collaboration with the French LEGOS Laboratory are presented. The method was successfully tested on the example of a number of lakes in the North-West of the Russian Federation (Ladoga, Onega, Ilmen, etc.).
