Meteo-France Monitoring (for E-SURFMAR)

A PDF file, regularly updated, is available onto the working area of the E-SURFMAR Website. The performances are presented in histogram form.

  • The performances (data availability, timeliness and quality) of the four E-SURFMAR components (manual VOS, automated VOS, drifting and moored buoys) are monitored on a monthly basis.
  • Data timeliness (percentage of reports received at Meteo-France within a given period) is computed for 50 and 100 minutes.
  • Data quality is assessed through two gauges : percentage of gross errors and root mean square (RMS) of differences with the Meteo-France analysis model outputs.
  • For ships, the figures are concerning observations carried out inside the EUMETNET area of interest.
