WMO is part of two multi-disciplinary consortia for research projects to increase coastal resilience : Preparing for Extreme And Rare Events in Coastal Regions (PEARL) , and Resilience-Increasing Strategies for Coasts – toolKIT (RISK-KIT).
2014 promises to be a busy year for WMO and the meteorological, climatologic and hydrologic community with several important conferences and events planned.
SPICE (Solid Precipitation Intercomparison Experiment) is a WMO/CIMO multi-sites intercomparison of instruments and systems of observation for the measurement of solid precipitation. One of the main objectives is the assessment of a wide range of instruments under various climates. For that purpose, around 20 sites worldwide are equipped and configured according to standards defined within the project, in order to allow comparison between the sites. The experiment started in October 2013 and is meant to last over two winter seasons.
