On October 18, the achievements exchange conference on reform and adjustment of surface air observation automation was held in Beijing. Dr. Yu Rucong, Deputy Administrator of CMA attended this conference and made a speech.


Since 2010, China's surface observations automation made significant progress. According to the CMA related work program, the first stage of reform and adjustment of surface air observation operation has gained a complete success such as in automatic observation techniques and equipment of visibility and solid precipitation. The observational data has been applied. The automatic observations of clouds and weather phenomenon have yielded good results. And the integrated operational platform (Version 1.0) has been successfully completed.


Dr. Yu pointed out four suggestions to advance the operation of surface observation automation. First, the adjustment direction of the surface air observation operation should adapt to the requirements of meteorological modern development. Secondly, the surface air observations automation should optimize the design of observation tasks, observation modes and observation processes. Thirdly, we should constantly sum up the basis of the preliminary work and steadily advance the automation business combination pilot. Finally, the reform and adjustment of ground meteorological operation requires closely coordination and collaboration of relevant units.
