SAGs serve as scientific bodies nominated by the CAS WG of WMO that assist in management and implementation of the GAW programme. The main tasks of SAGs are:
  • Establish Data Quality Objectives (DQOs) for each assigned parameter
  • Approve the corresponding Standard Operation Procedures (SOPs)
  • Provide guidelines and recommendations for achieving the DQOs and implementation of SOPs
  • Support the harmonization of measurements by recommending suitable measurement methods and procedures
  • Promote training and twinning in developing countries

The following SAGs have been established under the GAW programme:

  • SAG for Precipitation Chemistry ( pdf)
  • SAG for Aerosols ( pdf )
