The EMEP/GAW/CAMP Network(since 1984)

13 stations to monitor background pollution

  • The regular measurement programme consists on:

  • Ten-minute averaged concentration data of O3, NO, NO2, SO2, and PM10 (four stations) and gaseous Hg (one station) provided by automated analyzers

  • Over 100 chemical compounds retrieved manually from analyzers on different sampling periods:

  • A wide range of meteorological parameters

SIGROBS

(Integrated System for the Management of Observing Networks)

One of the AEMET objectives was to increase the observational data in time and space as well as to improve their quality, using a wide range of systems and products.

Quality Assurance and Quality Control procedures are required to ensure that data collected meet standards of reliability and accuracy, that is, that data meet the users’ requirements.

In order to maximize the potential value and benefit of observations from different observation networks, there is a need to integrate the planning, operation, data management, system monitoring, and life cycle support (operation, maintenance, repair) to existing and future observations.

The quality of an observing system can be assessed by comparing the users’ requirements to the ability of the system to fulfil them.

Since 2006 the Integrated System for the Management of Observing Networks (SIGROBS), is in charge of all these matters.

SIGROBS was developed using Open Source Software.

SIGROBS (Monitoring)

  • SIGROBS verifies that all possible data have been collected. If data are missing, the application automatically attempts to contact the station in order to retrieve the missing data.

  • The software used enables to display the status of each station, and disturbances and malfunctions can be seen immediately on the monitor by the colour of the station point.

SIGROBS (Quality Control)

  • In the course of the automatic tests of the measurements, every value is assigned to a quality byte. This byte prevents the dissemination or use of bad data.

  • Data are never altered by SIGROBS, that is, the flags supplement but do not alter the data, and SIGROBS can describe which test has been failed.


Ra vi 16 11 17 september 2013 helsinki wigos side event

SIGROBS (Fault Reports)

  • SIGROBS has been equipped with a maintenance tool that is used to monitor the correct functioning of the different observation systems. This tool can generate automatic fault reports when defects in the observation systems are detected.

  • SIGROBS can generate alarms for failures in the stations, communications or validation steps.

  • SIGROBS generates fault reports automatically or in a manual manner.

  • It is possible to request a summary report when necessary.

  • These reports details data irregularities and other events.

  • Some events can be sent to technicians automatically.

SIGROBS (Metadata)

  • Metadata are critical to the success of any integrated data management system.

  • Metadata describing the circumstances of the measurement/observation are particularly important for data users. They are absolutely essential to ensure that the final data user has no doubt about the conditions in which data have been recorded, gathered, transmitted and processed.

  • AEMET is establishing standard procedures in order to collect all significant changes made in instrumentation, observing and processing practices, sensor exposure and sitting, sensor failures, etc.

SIGROBS (Reports and Statistics)

In order to monitor the performance of the observation network, a global index has been defined as data availability minus erroneous data

Measurement Management System (MMS)

  • According to the ISO 10012:2003, the objective of a MMS is to manage the risk that measurement equipment and measurement processes could produce incorrect results affecting the quality of an organisation's output.

  • An effective MMS ensures that measuring equipment and measurement processes are fit for the intended use and it’s important in achieving product quality objectives and managing the risk of incorrect measurement results.

  • Metrological Confirmation is defined as a set of operations required to ensure that measuring equipment conforms the requirements for its intended use  calibration and verification procedures.

  • AEMET introduced the Metrological Confirmation in the Aeronautic Meteorological Network in 2007, and it has been extended to the whole synoptic network in the early 2013.

  • AEMET will expand these procedures to all the stations.

  • Our main goal for 2014 is to include in Metadata all the AEMET records related with the Metrological Confirmation.
