OBSERVATION AND DATA EXCHANGE

Aware of the key role of observation in meteorological activity, particularly for weather forecasting, climatology, and applied meteorology.

NIM now has a nationwide meteorological observation network that comprises :
    Synoptic stations
    Agro-meteorological stations
    Climatologic stations
    Rainfall stations
    Marine stations
    Upper-air observation stations

A communication system dedicated to meteorological data handles data exchange. Observation data obtained from national stations is dispatched to internal and external users while data obtained from external sources is dispatched to local users.
