Input for this plan was provided by SMN based on questions submitted by NOAA in August 2011. I am grateful for the many thoughtful responses provided by SMN to the questions provided.
This presentation is notional, that is, a proposed plan.
SMN ultimately “owns” its observing systems, and makes all final decisions on resource and staff. WMO and NOAA are advisors to SMN, albeit advisors with a strong motivation to assist SMN develop an indigenous AMDAR capability.
Therefore, SMN is encouraged to evolve this plan to meet local needs and resource constraints.
It is WMO and NOAA’s hope that the Mexican AMDAR Program will serve as a model and mentor for a growing Regional AMDAR Program for Central and South American
