Welcome to WMO Coordination Group on Satellite Data Requirements for RA III and RA IV

The Coordination Group on Satellite Data Requirements links users of meteorological satellites in the Americas (WMO Region III and IV) to the satellite providers. The Group consists of a representative number of members from the satellite data user community in the Region, joined, as associate  members, by satellite data providers and WMO.

WMO Regional Associations are a coordination mechanism for meteorological, hydrological and related activities by Members of WMO.

Expected benefits of the Group are to:

• Identify and synthesize user needs for satellite data, products and associated training
• Ensure an effective user-provider dialogue towards meeting these requirements
• Find user-friendly and affordable cost-sharing arrangements for data access and distribution
• Prepare for the new generation of meteorological satellites
• Support operational services, application development, and capacity building in meteorology (weather and climate) in the Region
• Exploit synergy through links with other users, applications and GEO Societal Benefit Areas (SBA’s)
