Consolidated lists of suspect stations in Region II (Asia)


Introduction

Pursuant to Paragraph 22 of Attachment II.7 of the Manual on the Global Data Processing and Forecasting System (WMO No. 485), the Regional Specialized Meteorological Center (RSMC) Tokyo was designated by the President of the Commission for Basic Systems (CBS) as a Lead Center for monitoring the quality of land surface observations (i.e., SYNOP) in Region II in March 1991. The Center is responsible for monitoring the quality of land surface observations and maintaining consolidated lists of stations suspected of reporting low-quality observation data together with adequate evidence. The lists are to be passed on to the WMO Secretariat and monitoring centers participating in this activity as well as to Members of Regional Association (RA) II for their reference. return to top page
