Awards

The participation in the weather observing scheme is principally voluntarily. There is no payment for this engagement, but an award system was installed. The entitlement for an award is based on a combination of number of observations and time of participation with DWD in the scheme. The personal awards cover high quality products ranging from stationary to meteorology/navigation related books and a personal plaque as the top award.


German awards

  • 1 point for each observation
