WMO calls for protection of radio frequencies vital to weather forecasts

October 25, 2019

Over the past few years, CGMS plenary has raised the need for the protection of radio frequencies for Earth observation satellites dedicated to the observations and monitoring of the weather, ocean, climate and environment.

The World Meteorological Organization has now issued a press release calling on governments to protect radio frequencies allocated to Earth observation services which are vital for weather forecasts and long-term climate change monitoring.

Decisions with major repercussions for Earth exploration, environmental monitoring and meteorological satellite operation will be made at the World Radiocommunication Conference from 28 October – 22 November 2019.
