bufr templates for surface observations
BUFR templates for surface observations

Templates TM 307080, TM 307090 and TM 308009 for reporting SYNOP, SYNOP MOBIL and SHIP data in TDCF are constructed in a similar way. They consists of 3 parts:

  • Station, time and location identification
  • Instantaneous data
  • Period data
bufr templates for surface observations5

  • Instantaneous data

“Instantaneous” parameter is a parameter that is not coupled to a time period descriptor.

  • Period data

“Period” parameter is a parameter that is preceded with a time period descriptor, which allows more precise data description than in traditional codes. However, once a period descriptor is introduced, it applies to all following entries until it is redefined by another period descriptor.

Station, time and location identification 3 01 090

Instantaneous data

  • 3 02 031 Pressure data
  • 3 02 035 Basic synoptic “instantaneous” data
  • 3 02 036 Clouds with bases below station level
  • 3 02 047 Direction of cloud drift
  • 0 08 002 Vertical significance
  • 3 02 048 Direction and elevation of cloud
  • 3 02 037 State of ground, snow depth, ground min. temperature

Period data

  • 3 02 043 Basic synoptic “period” data
  • 3 02 044 Evaporation data
  • 1 01 002 Replicate next descriptor 2 times
  • 3 02 045 Radiation data
  • 3 02 046 Temperature change
height of sensor
Height of sensor

Measured values of some elements are significantly influenced by the height of sensor. Based on the requirements of OPAG IOS experts, a new parameter 007032 (Height of sensor above local ground or marine platform) has been introduced to be reported for

  • Temperature and humidity data
  • Visibility data
  • Precipitation data
  • Wind data

In case of marine data, also the height of sensor above water (0 07 033) is required to be reported for

  • Temperature and humidity data
  • Visibility data
  • Wind data
the heights of sensor 0 07032 and 007033 within the templates for surface data
The heights of sensor 007032 and 007033 within the templates for surface data

The entries within the “instantaneous data” as well as within the “period data” are grouped according to the requirement for the heights of sensor to be included or not.

For example, within 3 02 043 (Basic synoptic “period” data), there is a block of entries:

  • 3 02 040 Precipitation data,
  • 3 02 041 Extreme temperature data,
  • 3 02 042 Wind data,
  • 0 07 032 Height of sensor above local ground (shall be set to missing to cancel the previous value).

The last entry was inserted because the height of sensor is not required for the following data (Evaporation data, etc.).

If regional or national reporting practices require inclusion of additional period parameters, the common sequence descriptors 3 07 080, 3 07 090 and 3 08 009 may be supplemented by relevant descriptors.

If regional or national reporting practices require inclusion of additional instantaneous parameters, the common sequence descriptors 3 07 080, 3 07 090 and 3 08 009 cannot be used. In this case, they shall be used in the first level expanded form and the new entries shall be inserted to precede 3 02 043 (Basic synoptic period data) or 3 02 060 (SHIP period data).

bufr templates for upper air measurements
BUFR templates for upper-air measurements

Templates TM 309050, TM 309051 for reporting PILOT, PILOT MOBIL and PILOT SHIP data and TM 309052 for TEMP, TEMP MOBIL, TEMP SHIP and TM 309053 for TEMP DROP data are constructed in a similar way:

  • Station, time and location identification
  • Instrumentation
  • Surface observations (only forTEMP, TEMP MOBIL, TEMP SHIP)
  • Level data (wind or P,T, U and wind)
  • Wind shear data
specific features of regulations for reporting upper air data in tdcf
Specific features of Regulations for reporting upper-air data in TDCF
  • A message should be produced when level 100 hPa is reached. All required data from the entire ascent shall be reported in another message, produced when the sounding is completed.
  • Time and location of radiosonde shall be included at each level.
  • If high vertical resolution data is required, data from additional levels may be included, number of levels being limited by the message length – 500000 octets.
  • The data should be included in descending order with respect to pressure (in ascending order with respect to altitude).
reporting of additional information
Reporting of additional information

If regional reporting practices require inclusion of data at additional levels, these levels shall be indicated by the bit No. 15 set to 1 in Extended sounding significance 008042. Other additional levels shall be specified by all bits of 008042 set to 0.

If additional information on sounding instrumentation is required, the common sequence descriptors may be supplemented by one or more parameters to allow representation of such information or by a character data field (using 2 05 Y).

Templates TM 307073 for CLIMAT data and TM 08013 for CLIMAT SHIP data are constructed in a similar way:

  • Station, time and location identification
  • Monthly data (with the exception of precipitation)
  • Monthly precipitation data
  • Monthly normal values of elements (with the exception of precipitation)
  • Monthly normal values of precipitation
period for monthly surface data
Period for monthly surface data

The time identification refers to the beginning of the one-month period.

  • Except for precipitation measurements, the one-month period for monthly data is recommended to correspond to the local standard time (LST) month.
  • In case of monthly precipitation data, the one-month period begins at 06 UTC on the first day of the month and ends at 06 UTC on the first day of the following month.
  • The same applies for normal values (with the exception of precipitation) and normal values of precipitation.

Template TM 309054 for reporting CLIMAT TEMP and CLIMAT TEMP SHIP:

  • Station, time and location identification
  • Monthly mean data(number of missing days included)

Monthly mean data are currently required from 10 levels. If data from additional levels were required in the future or by national decision, they can be included.
