150 active stations for Denmark and Greenland have been integrated in the data collection
In December 2022, the CEMS MDCC team integrated the meteorological station data from Danmarks Meteorologiske Institut (DMI) into the operational processing routines. DMI provides precipitation, temperature, dewpoint temperature, relative air humidity, sunshine duration, solar radiation, cloud cover as well as wind speed and direction data in 10-minute, hourly, 12-hourly or daily resolution. Data of 150 active meteorological stations are loaded into the CEMS MDCC database in the daily routine. The data are processed and included into the gridded precipitation, temperature, solar radiation and wind speed fields produced every day as input for the EFAS forecasts as well as for EFFIS. Temperature and precipitation data are also used for the SPI (Standard Precipitation Index) and HCWI (Heat and Cold Wave Index) calculated for EDO.
CEMS MDCC would like to thank Danmarks Meteorologiske Institut very much for providing their data and making them accessible via their API.
