Challenges:


Receiving stations initially installed on private networks hence not
accessible to users on their local area network


Insufficient
c
ompetent
IT
personnel
to manage the
stations


Insufficient use of some receiving stations mostly due to limited
knowledge on how to operate the system


Power interruptions (blackouts)


Data access by regional institutes e.g. Universities not yet adequate

Recommendation:


Facilitate additional station installation in MESA


Further training
IT personnel and users in
institutes
on how to manage
the systems and make use of the data


Backup power for receiving stations? (solar panels etc)

Receiving Stations

Perspective:
National Focal Points have access to historical data for
research and development.

Dissemination via EumetCast

All products that are currently being
produced are being automatically
disseminated to
EUMETCast

Most decadal products disseminated on
evening of the third day following end
of decade

Perspective:
Users with receiving
stations can have access to products
in
near

real time
