At present, attenuated backscatter profiles from over 265 ALCs in 19 countries are being distributed by EUMETNET
E-PROFILE in near-real time to national weather services and can be viewed online (at http://eumetnet.eu/e-profile/).
The strategy of NRT solution will be realized according to standards used for global IGS and regional EPN permanent GNSS networks and NRT solution strategy created in the frame of COST Action 716 (European Cooperation in the field of Scientific Technical Research--exploitation of ground-based GPS for climate and numerical weather prediction applications, 1998-2004), TOUGH (Targeting Optimal Use of GPS Humidity Data in Meteorology, http://tough.dmi.dk/, 2003-2006) and E-GVAP (The EUMETNET
GPS Water Vapour Programme, http://egvap.dmi.dk, 2004-2008) projects (Dousa, 2004, 2010).
We thank the European Meteorological Service Network (EUMETNET
) for funding additional radiosondes and for providing access to the data.
The zenith troposphere delays estimated at GOP in near real-time contribute to the EUMETNET
GPS Water Vapour Programme and they are distributed to meteorological agencies worldwide.

Nonadaptive aircraft measurements over the Pacific Rim and part of India deployed through the European Meteorological Network (EUMETNET
)-Aircraft Meteorological Data Relay (AMDAR) program enhanced the observational coverage.
The operational service for Surface Marine Observations (E-SURFMAR) of the Economic Interest Group (EIG) of the European Meteorological Network (EUMETNET
) also provides an important contribution to the SVPB drifter array, mainly in the North Atlantic Ocean.
The Atlantic Observing-System Research and Predictability Experiment (THORPEX) Regional Campaign (A-TReC) in 2003, sponsored by the European Meteorological Network (EUMETNET
) Composite Observing System (EUCOS), was the first extratropical field campaign over the northern Atlantic Ocean to employ targeted observations since FASTEX.
The feedback can be sent either directly or via WMO (or via EUMETNET
for European reports) and can relate to either coding or availability.
The organization of European National Meteorological Services (EUMETNET
) has also recommended to its members that they include a minimum number of detectable signals in their regular transmission schedule.
In Europe three NMHSs (France, Germany, and the United Kingdom) maintain global and regional numerical weather prediction (NWP) facilities while more than 25 smaller NMHSs only run high-resolution regional systems; all cooperate operationally via the European Meteorological Network (EUMETNET
7) is currently run under the auspices of EUMETNET
, with more than 25 instruments (June 2015).
