KNMI Annual Report 2010 'KNMI round the clock'
23 november 2011
KNMI is an institute where we are working all year round, seven days a week, 24 hours a day. In the Annual Report 2010 entitled 'KNMI round the clock' we show what is going on in one day at KNMI. After all, weather forecasts don’t stop at night, climate research is going on all time long at the other end of the world and earthquakes also happen in de middle of the night.
From hour to hour we lead you to the various activitities and departments of KNMI. From the nightly hours in the forecasting office to the ships that gather data at sea. From the weather forecasts for Amsterdam Airport Schiphol and Netherlands Traffic Control Centre in the early morning hours to the localisation of earthquakes.
During daytime instruments and networks are maintained, evaluations take place, like of the ashcloud or of weather alarms, and if necessary preparations are made for upcoming weather warnings. The evening is the best moment for a videoconference with the meteorological service for the Netherlands Antilles and for KNMI scientists to discuss new global climate research at meetings all around the world. In short, KNMI never stands still.
In addition this annual report consists of the usual overviews of finance, personnel, webstatistics and weather. KNMI’s Annual report can be found via the link in the menu.
