Note 1

Including the following post AMMA activities documents as annexes or background documents :
(a) Mohammed Kadi document "The AMMA Observing Network Contribution to GCOS" submited to the GCOS Steeting Committee 17th Session (Paris, France, Oct. 2009)
(b) Parker et al paper (2008) on "the AMMA Radiosonde Program and its Implications for the Future of Atmospheric Monitoring over Africa"
(c) The notes by D. Parker et al from the meeting of former members of AMMA TT1 Radiosonde Coordination Group, AMMA International Conference, Toulouse, 3 July 2012 with recommendation from AMMA radiosonde group for international coordination of implementation of support for the West African upper air network.

Note 2

Please provide either (i) a draft updated (or new) SoG, or (ii) a short report explaining why there is no updated SoG (e.g. no change required, pending, etc.), and any other related issue that needs to be raised with the IPET-OSDE.
In addition, please also report on any issue with regard to representing the observational user requirements of the application area in the OSCAR database.

sp

Note 3

The document should elaborate on (i) how the observational requirements for the GCW are currently taken into account within existing SoGs, and propose how these should be updated if needed, and (ii) the possible need for new application area(s) to address the observational requirements of the GCW not covered as part of existing application areas and their respective SoGs.

Note 4

The document should elaborate on (i) how the observational requirements for the GFCS are currently taken into account within existing SoGs, including the GCOS-IP, and the Climate (other aspects - CCl) SoG, and propose how these should be updated if needed, and (ii) the possible need for new application area(s) to address the observational requirements of the GFCS not covered as part of existing application areas and their respective SoGs

Note 5

Including Update on recent observation impact experiments (Item 8.1), Proposal for new observation impact experiments to be promoted by IPET-OSDE (item 8.2), and Next workshop on the impact of observations in NWP (item 8.3)
