In the course of EMGISCO I und EMGISCO II, and in cooperation with the Institute of Meteorology and Geophysics (IMGW), the network of meteorological measurements could be extended.

Project aims - This project is a follow-up project from EMGISCO – II and has following aims:
* Continuation of snow measurements in the immediate area of the gravimeter GWR C025 SG, including measuring snow thickness with a sensor. Collaboration with the project SNOWGRID.
* Evaluation of information given by the weather radar and the micro-rain radar for observations of the water content in the atmosphere.
* Assessment of interested parties, who could be provided with the obtained data.
* Development of a data acquisition system for end-users, illustrated by the example of the work group Global Geodynamics Project (GGP).

Results will be available soon.

Start April 2012
End March 2013
