This service will be provided by the METSP (MET Service Provider). The METSP is an organisation designated to provide MET services supporting international air navigation.
- This service will enable the local OUE stakeholders to be provided with all nominal MET information for an airport and its approach areas they require. It contains two main sub-parts being the information on surface elements (like e.g. wind, temperature, QNH) as well the aloft elements (e.g. wind and temperature). The required elements should be selectable by the stakeholder.
- This service will enable the sub-regional OUE stakeholders to be provided with selectable MET aloft elements (temperature, wind, ¿).
- This service will enable the network OUE stakeholders to be provided with selectable MET aloft elements (temperature, wind, ¿). A special feature of the network service could be the possible selection of ensemble MET information, next to the deterministic information.
This service could possibly be split up between observation and forecast MET information.
It is also expected that this service foresees a user selectable temporal resolution (update rate or time steps for forecast data), output format (gridded data, graphics) and for the aloft data also spatial resolution (horizontal grid and vertical steps). In addition it is expected that the user can select multiple airports and that the forecast data is deterministic or probabilistic.
