The work of the Aircraft-Based Observations Program for development of the aircraft-based observing system and the AMDAR system, is primarily based on two planning documents:
ABOP Strategy & Implementation Plan
Based on the above strategic framework, the responsible teams have developed the Aircraft-Based Observations Programme Strategy and Implementation Plan (A-SIP).
The achievement of the A-SIP will be undertaken primarily through the work and guidance of a CBS Expert Team on Aircraft-Based Observing systems (ET-ABO) within the Open Programme Area Group on Integrated Observing Systems and a CIMO Expert Team on Aircraft-based Observations (ET-AO) within the Open Programme Areas Group on Standardization & Intercomparisons.
The focus of ET-ABO will be the following elements:
The focus of ET-AO will be:
The Work Program of CIMO Expert Team on Aircraft-based Observations will be available in 4th quarter of 2014.
The work plans of the former CIMO Task Team on Aircraft-based Observations (TT-AO) are provided below.
The Budget for the ABOP is based on the Work Plans of the above CBS and CIMO Teams that contribute to the development and management of the program and is supported by the AMDAR Trust Fund under its Terms of Reference.
The Budget Summary is based on the cumulative approved, expected expenditures within the approved Work Plans of the CBS Expert Team on Aircraft-based Observing Systems (ET-ABO) and the CIMO Task Team on Aircraft-based Observations (TT-AO).
