what has cbs been doing
What has CBS been doing?
  • CBS has held two sessions since the last Congress
    • Dubrovnik, Croatia March 2009 – TECO on WIGOS
    • Windhoek, Namibia Nov 2010 – TECO on End to End Services Delivery
  • Updated TOR reflecting WIS, WIGOS, information access as well as exchange, disaster risk reduction, the WMO Space Program and end to end service delivery
  • Increasing engagement and joint activities with RAs and other TCs
  • Working to continuously improve business practices
what has cbs been doing1
What has CBS been doing?
  • With CIMO, guidance on weather radar/wind turbine siting, guidance for transition from manual to automatic observing and siting classification for land surface observing stations
  • Steering Group on Radio Frequency Coordination - Guidance statement on weather radar/radio frequency shared spectrum use
  • With CCL, further development of Global Producing Centres for Long-Range Forecasts, support delivery of services by RCCs and national centres for seasonal and longer-time frame predictions in support of the GFCS
what has cbs been doing2
What has CBS been doing?
  • With CAS, designation criteria for Sand and Dust Storm Warning Assessment and Advisory System Regional Centres
  • With CAeM, initiation of space weather activities through the Inter-Programme Coordination Team on Space Weather in collaboration with the International Space Environment Service (ISES) and initial coordination on volcanic ash observing.
  • With JCOMM, CAgM, CHY other TCs, significant contributions to WIS and WIGOS development
  • With the DRRP engaging on developing new business practices and crosscutting approaches

  • WIGOS into the Implementation Phase - Moving from observation silos to integrated management
    • Proof of concept and development phase complete
    • Skeletal implementation plan
  • Robust Requirements Process - Starting and ending with delivery of services to users
    • building on the existing Rolling Review of Requirements
    • WIS requirements have been initiated (reflect data management including exchange)
    • Regional engagement started

CBS Issues, Decisions, Recent History

Our Information System (WIS) and our Observation System (WIGOS) are the foundation stones that our operational house is built upon.

WIGOS and WIS are essential for our NMHSs to provide enhanced, efficient and cost effective services across all WMO activities, for all WMO Programmes including the GFCS and to support all WMO Members.

They are core capacities, foundational to performing any other function of an NMHS, for delivery of any service and essential for the future interoperability of data and products.

wigos wis are
  • Not new technologies
  • Not new systems
  • Yet, not the old systems and technologies either

Observation and information management based on meeting users’ requirements derived from a services delivery perspective, utilizing QMF principles and implemented through a continuous improvement process.

roles responsibilities
Roles & Responsibilities?
  • Members own, manage and sustain observing and information systems; they also implement improvements to these systems.
  • The most important thing Members, RAs and TCs can do is to:

Ingrain WIS and WIGOS concepts and practices throughout the range of observational and data exchange activities and systems within their areas of control and influence.

  • CBS’ role is to provide technical services in support of Members, RAs and other TCs
meeting needs
Meeting needs
  • In addition to meet overarching requirements, we need to work on focusing activities to meet each Member’s and Region’s needs being especially sensitive to differing levels of development and need for capacity development
  • Mobilize regions by promoting regional projects which take advantage of global expertise
  • Promote national and regional experience upwards to improve global benefits
  • Institute national, regional & global plans and activities that support one another
  • Support regional & sub-regional activities to strengthen national capabilities

  • The ability of Members to deliver services is the true measure of what we do & of the value of this organization
  • Services to society, services to decision makers, services to the public and services to organizational entities public, private, academic or otherwise
  • WIS and WIGOS as foundational components are needed so Members can deliver services
  • Quality management, data representation systems and integrated data management are needed so Members can deliver services
  • NMHS’s key strength is to be able to deliver services

Support to Capacity Building for the implementation of WWW systems, the Public Weather Services and DRR is a priority for CBS - A new priority - integration of climate services

cbs the future
CBS: the Future
  • Continued operational rollout of WIS
    • Improved data management – Guide to DM best practices including data policy issues
    • Full spectrum approach from data model to exchange standards and communication techniques to discovery services
  • Achieve initial operational status for WIGOS
    • Manual / Guide on WIGOS
    • Observational metadata availability meeting agreed standards
    • Management principles & processes linking WMO component observing systems
    • Rationalization of observing system implementation plans
    • Improved interoperability and utilization for NWP and other apps
    • Strengthen observing capabilities such as for the cryosphere , volcanic ash and space weather.
cbs the future1
CBS: the Future
  • Strong linkages between SWFDP, DRR and related projects – with crosscutting engagement of TCs & RAs
  • Continued multi-programme multi-sectoral collaboration to address regional needs for multi-hazard early warning systems and improve forecasting, warning and DRR services
  • Enable NMHSs of developing countries to extend alerting lead-time for severe weather and for estimating forecast uncertainty through improved delivery of EPS-based products for probabilistic forecasting
  • Support the space-based architecture for climate monitoring and space weather activities
cbs the future2
CBS: the Future
  • GFCS – integrate support for climate services into WIS, WIGOS, data processing and forecasting systems and public weather services & DRR services delivery mechanisms
  • Enable NMHSs to do for climate what we do for the world weather watch
  • Support Members to provide seamless predictive services

The improvement of Members ability to provide predictive and decision support services seamlessly across time scales and applications is the true measure of our success

cbs the future3
CBS: the Future
  • Continued work to mature internal business processes for improved efficiency, cost effectiveness and quality management - QMF
  • With EC guidance, continue collaboration with RAs and other TCs on improving WMO business processes

Most importantly

End to end capabilitybuilding for observing, information management, processing & forecasting and public weather & disaster risk reduction services to support Members’ ability to deliver:

Seamless Predictive and Decision Support Services

with a multi-hazard – multi-sectoral approach
