WG2 on method and software homogenisation

WG2 l coordinates comparison and homogenisation of methods needed for operationalisation of OS precipitation observations with focus on i) automated quality control, ii) fast processing, and iii) uncertainty assessment.
■ WG2

Activity 1

Coordinating software community development

  • T2.1. Collecting and reviewing existing OS packages and codes developed by individual research groups and initializing and managing community development of open software implementations of algorithms for processing OS observations (RCO5).
■ WG2

Activity 2

Coordinating joint research agenda on OS processing, quality control and uncertainty assessment

  • T2.2. Coordinating comparison of fast processing and quality control algorithms suitable for operational use. Identifying benchmark algorithms (RCO4).
  • T2.3. Connect researchers investigating different OS sensor types and coordinate the development of methods for OS processing, quality control and uncertainty assessment of OS observations utilizing also data from existing observation networks (RCO5).
■ WG2

Activity 3

Training PhD students and ECIs

  • T2.4. Organising and leading Training School on data acquisition and OS processing (CBO5).

WG1 is focused on improving availability of well-documented OS historical and operational data and definition of benchmark datasets.
WG3 coordinates the research agenda on merging different types of OS with each other and with traditional observations. It will coordinate the creation of OS precipitation products in historical and operational mode and their application in weather and hydrological forecasts.
WG4 coordinates stakeholder involvement and communication with external stakeholders, the scientific community, and the broader public. It develops strategies for unlocking OS data and their uptake through stakeholder engagement.
WG5 manages internal communication, knowledge exchange and capacity building. It is also in charge of coordinating Working Group cross-activities, identifying possible synergies and thus maximizing the Actions impact.
