Joint programmes of the national meteorological services
Through EUMETNET, the meteorological services invest in joint programmes - a large proportion of which relate to meteorological monitoring. Examples of these include:
- Collation of data from European weather radars
- Weather observation using civil aircraft
- Cross-border communication of weather warnings
As part of the EMMA (European Multi-services Meteorological Awareness) programme, EUMETNET is developing the "meteoalarm" forecasting platform. This provides crucial information to enable people in Europe to prepare for extreme weather occurrences.
In the field of climatology, the goal of EUMETNET is the creation of a sustainable, Europe-wide data infrastructure (e.g. common database). Its aim is to facilitate access to, and distribution of, climatological data.
