Acknowledgment
  • The inaugural OPAG 1 Chair - Richard Masika’s contribution to national (Kenya) and international climate activities over many years.
opag 1
OPAG 1
  • Implementation & Coordination Team
    • Some useful contributions but did not function as planned
  • Expert Teams on:
    • Observing Requirements and Standards for Climate
    • Rescue, Preservation and Digitization of Climate Records
    • Metadata for Climate Applications
    • National Networks and Observations in Support of Climate Activities
  • Rapporteurs on
    • Regional Aspects of Data and Data Management
    • Use of Data from Remote Sensing Systems
  • Activities and outputs:
    • http://www.bom.gov.au/wmo/climate/ccl/opag1.shtml
supporting good quality consistent and homogeneous observations
Supporting good quality, consistent and homogeneous observations
  • Key outputs:
    • Guidelines on:
      • Climate observation networks and systems
      • Phenological observations (outside OPAG)
      • Automated versus manual surface meteorological observations – decision factors
      • Managing changes in observation programs
      • Calculating normals (an update, OPAGs 1 & 2)
supporting good quality consistent and homogeneous observations1
Supporting good quality, consistent and homogeneous observations
  • Key outputs:
    • Brief guidelines on data accessibility and maintaining national climate networks
    • Inputs to:
      • “The Guide…”
      • CBS led Statements of Guidance (on future observation systems)
      • GCOS related activities (e.g. Adequacy report, implementation plan)
supporting good quality consistent and homogeneous observations2
Supporting good quality, consistent and homogeneous observations
  • Key “misses”:
    • From guidelines to knowledge
    • Stronger and more coordinated linkages with GEO, GCOS, CBS, CIMO, JCOMM, etc activities
improving the capacity to manage climate data
Improving the capacity to manage climate data
  • Key outputs:
    • Actively supporting Climate Database Management System (CDMS) project
    • Support for data management training
    • Guidelines on:
      • Climate data management
      • Metadata and homogeneity (with OPAG 2)
      • Extensible Markup Language (XML): essentials for climatologists
      • Quality control/Quality assurance of climate data
improving the capacity to manage climate data1
Improving the capacity to manage climate data
  • Key outputs:
    • Engagement with the (Future) WMO Information System (WIS), including on metadata
  • Key “misses”
    • National and regional opportunities for capturing resources
    • International standards for exchanging (station) metadata
saving national heritage climate data rescue
Saving national heritage: climate data rescue
  • Key outputs:
    • Involvement in data rescue activities, including through Regional GCOS initiatives
    • Guidelines on climate data rescue (with OPAG 2)
    • Brochure for awareness raising
