Ozone and uv research and monitoring activities in the czech republic

International Cooperation - GAW

  • The GAW Regional Dobson Calibration Centre – Europe (RDCCE)

  • Bilateral cooperation between MOHp Hohenpeissenberg and SOO Hradec Kralove, since 1999

  • The recent assisted activities

  • DIC-Africa, Dahab 2004

  • DIC-Asia – assistance to the RDCC-A, Tsukuba, 2007

  • Re-location of the Dobsons to Maun, Botswana, 2005 and Nairobi, Kenya, 2006

  • Maintenance of the Dobson web site:http://www.chmi.cz/meteo/ozon/dobsonweb/welcome.htm

  • Absolute calibration of European and World Dobson references, Izana, Sep. 2008

7ORM, Geneva, 2008K. Vanicek, CHMI


Ozone and uv research and monitoring activities in the czech republic

A pilot re-evaluation of the data from Bangkok, 2006

International Cooperation - GAW

Capacity Building

Maintenance of the ozone network in developing countries

  • Training, software and hardware tools, calibrations, re-evaluation

  • Co-ordination with ENV/WMO and SAG-Ozone

  • 26 stations in 17 countries assisted by missions in 1996-2007

  • Total costs ~120k USD by the Czech Government

7ORM, Geneva, 2008K. Vanicek, CHMI

International Cooperation EU

Global Monitoring for Environment and Security Atmosphere Service (GMES-GAS)

  • The GAS will provide information on atmospheric variables insupport of EU policies, Services will coverair quality, climate change, stratospheric ozone and solar radiation

  • A long-term (decades)important source for ground and satellite ozone and UV observation systems in Europe and the surroundings

  • Participation of Czech experts on definition of the Implementation Plan for the In-situ (ground) Ozone and UV monitoring system

Recommendations for the 7ORM Report

  • Data Quality

    A technological workshop on re-evaluation of total ozone observations from stations identified by the the DQ Panel, 2007 should be organized by WMO and co-sponsored by MP Trust Fund. Programme of the workshop and scientific guidance to be provided by the SAG-Ozone.

  • Capacity Building

    Contributions donated to the MP Trust Fund and other supports provided to the Capacity Building by individual countries/agencies should be used for apriory specified actions. Priority should be given to realization of intercomparisons and calibration missions (DIC Africa 2008, Asia 2010, South America 2010), to relocation of unused instruments mainly to stations in the tropics and Central Asia and to data re-evaluation activities recommended by the SAG-Ozone
