Meteo Unit for the forecasting and monitoring of weather related natural disasters

Meteo/NOA produces and provides a significant number of data and information, by operating:

• The denser network of meteorological stations in Greece (405, December 2019).

• High-resolution operational weather forecasting systems (waving, ultraviolet radiation, transfer of dust, thunderstorms, etc.) not only for Greece but also for           Europe.

• A system for weather-related Satellite products (rain probability, clouds’ height and thickness, thunderstorms’ monitoring, etc.)

• Crowdsourcing systems for the reporting of severe weather phenomena

• Early warning systems for severe weather events including forest fires

• Databases for the systematic recording of weather-related natural disasters, impact analysis and vulnerability assessment.

Additional actions at European-level include:

DISARM/IRIS: Integrated observatory and early warning system aiming to assist interested authorities in better preventing, addressing and mitigating the adverse impacts of wildland fires, which include:

• Forest fire risk assessment

• A platform for satellite detection and monitoring of fires.

• A rapid response system for fire spread forecasting - IRIS

DUST: A service for operational forecasting of the transport of African Dust. METEO/NOA is today the only Greek provider of relevant forecasts to the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) Sand and Dusta Storm Warning Advisory and Assessment System.

TALOS: Lightning monitoring and forecasting service at European-level. NOA operates, since 2005, ZEUS lightnings detection system, which, combined with ‘TALOS’ - a lightning forecasting system, makes NOA as one of the very few European Centers that provides full coverage (monitoring and forecasting) of lightning activity.
