SYNOP stations from WMO GTS added

Information at WMO SYNOP stations with open data access have been extracted from WMO BUFR to NetCDF/CF. This is now available in the catalogue. Information on the data centre hosting the data is correct, but the data is provided by the WMO members, not the Norwegian Meteorological Institute. Work is in progress on how to proper credit the originating provider.

Preparation of information from WMO GTS

Extraction of information from WMO GTS and ingestion in the data portal is now in process. Information from the synoptic weather stations have been prepared. During ingestion there may be some inconsistencies in how these data are presented. This work will continue through the weekend of March 23-26. Data from radiosondes and ships are also in process, but not that mature yet.
